Just over 1 percent
of those projected to enroll in Vermont's new health care insurance program
have selected a plan. That's the word from Vermont Health Connect, which
released the latest numbers Tuesday afternoon.
Officials have estimated 100,000
Vermonters will have to enroll in the mandate. To date, 1,103 Vermonters have
selected a plan.
Gov. Peter Shumlin says
Vermont's Health Exchange is getting better, but three weeks after the launch
of the new system Vermonters still can't actually buy health insurance.
Vermont's website has been plagued with problems. Customers cannot actually pay
for the new coverage yet and the state may not meet its Nov. 1 deadline for
having the problem fixed.
