A county health department in New York’s Hudson Valley is the latest entity to announce help for residents with the new health insurance marketplace under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

Vermont is getting nearly $619,000 in grants to enroll the uninsured in new health coverage options made available by the Affordable Care Act.

Vermont has won conditional federal approval for its plan to build a consumer-friendly health insurance marketplace, or exchange.

Vermont is now one of 17 states to have gotten word from a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that they are on track to have a health exchange ready for business by Oct. 1.

Robin Lunge, Gov. Peter Shumlin's director of health reform, says much work remains to get the exchange up and running.
