A state panel has tentatively set a target inflation rate of 4 percent for Vermont’s 14 hospitals for the coming fiscal year. The target would add about $85 million to the current statewide spending level of $2.1 billion. Vermont Public Radio reported that the Green Mountain Care Board will continue to take comments from the hospitals and the public until Feb. 19. It’s expected to make a final decision on the targets at a Feb. 21 meeting.
