Partnership between Vt. hospitals, Vt. Health Connect

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Peter Shumlin announced a new partnership Tuesday between Vermont hospitals and the state's new health exchange.

All 14 in-state hospitals as well as Dartmouth-Hitchcock will offer health insurance guidance for uninsured patients.

Shumlin says the outreach effort is a natural fit for hospitals already serving the physical aspects of patients' health needs.

"Also has on staff and on the team the ability to help patients understand how Vermont Health Connect works, what they're eligible for and how they can be assured of quality affordable health care," said Shumlin, D-Vermont.

Shumlin says the troubled Vermont Health Connect website is getting better by the day. Persistent problems forced the administration to delay full implementation of the exchange until next April.
