A Checkup On Vermont Health Connect

Oct 27, 2017

As Congress debates the future of the Affordable Care Act, a new enrollment period begins next week. We take this opportunity to assess how Vermont Health Connect is faring today after the series of technical problems that has riddled it in the past.

Vermont Edition talks with Sean Sheehan, deputy director of the Department of Vermont Health Access, and with Mike Fisher, Vermont's chief health care advocate, for an update on Vermont Health Connect. We also discuss with our guests the range of policies available on the exchange and how much financial assistance is available.

You can reach Vermont Legal Aid's office of the Health Care Advocate at (800) 917-7787.
