Officials with the office that is overseeing the arrival of a new health care exchange in Vermont are going to be traveling the state to tell Vermonters which options will be available to them.
Vermont Health Access Commissioner Mark Larson says that over the course of the next year, he and others will be visiting communities across the state. He says regardless of income or employment, everyone should participate.
Vermont Health Connect will be a marketplace that is part of the federal health care reform known as the Affordable Care Act. The marketplace is where individuals, families and small businesses in Vermont can compare public and private health plans and select one that fits their needs and budget.
The first forum is scheduled for Wednesday in Newport.
