Vermont Health Connect

The state says that 3,138 people have chosen a new health insurance plan through the Vermont Health Connect website.

Vermont is delaying implementation of its health care exchange plan due to problems with the state's enrollment website.

The state of Vermont is going to delay the implementation of its health care reform plan in case problems with the state's website can't be resolved in time to meet the Jan. 1 deadline.

Officials with the administration of Governor Peter Shumlin are defending the performance of the Vermont Health Connect insurance exchange website, saying its performance is improving despite serious technical glitches since its launch October 1st.

Governor Peter Shumlin says the Vermont Health Connect health insurance marketplace's performance is improving, and there's no need now to talk about contingency plans in case it isn't fully functional by year's end.

Officials in Vermont say enrollment numbers are increasing after a rocky launch of Vermont’s health insurance marketplace.

Enrollment numbers are growing for the new Vermont Health Connect health insurance exchange, but on its second day of operation, the system continued to struggle with a too-slow website.

The official overseeing the launch of Vermont's online health insurance marketplace says the system is on track for its scheduled opening.

Many Vermont employers are struggling with the decision whether to continue their workers on health insurance or allow them to buy it individually and take advantage of federal tax credits.
