Vermont Removes the Residency Requirement for MAID: What that Means for New Yorkers

Vermont recently removed the requirement that you must be a resident in order to access Medical Aid in Dying in the state. We applaud this decision and hope to pass a law in New York without a residency requirement as well, just like all other medical care you can receive in this state. But what does it really mean for New Yorkers? It's not as easy as just taking a drive to New England to receive your medication. Read this important fact sheet from Patient Choices Vermont to understand how you can access Medical Aid in Dying in Vermont, and why this process may be challenging.
