Dylan Scott is a senior correspondent for Vox, where he has led the news organization’s health care coverage.
His time at Vox started concurrently with the Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, which he covered from Capitol Hill. He has since served as Vox’s lead reporter on two international reporting series supported by the Commonwealth Fund, the first on how other nations achieve universal health care and the second on how some countries excelled in their Covid-19 responses. He reported an investigative feature on short-term health plans for a Vox collaboration with the Center for Public Integrity and authors the weekly VoxCare newsletter.
Dylan previously reported for STAT, National Journal, Talking Points Memo and Governing magazine. Since coming to Washington, D.C., in 2011, he has covered the biggest political news of the day: Supreme Court rulings on the Affordable Care Act and gay marriage, the opening of diplomatic relations with Cuba, the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and the 2016 presidential campaign. He has broken news on major developments on Capitol Hill, interviewed the most powerful people in politics including Vice President Joe Biden, and traveled across the country to tell stories beyond the Beltway.
His first job out of college took him to the award-winning Las Vegas Sun in 2010, where he covered the fallout of the Great Recession in one of the country’s hardest-hit metropolitan areas.
Before graduating from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, Dylan was awarded first place by the Associated Press Society of Ohio for Best Investigative Reporting for a series of stories exposing questionable accounting practices and budget decisions by the university’s administration.
