Vt. health care officials say most small biz covered

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The group implementing the new health insurance system in Vermont says 75 percent of small business employees in the state are enrolled in a Vermont Health Connect plan for next year.

The Department of Vermont Health Access says the figure includes Vermont small business employees and their dependents affected by federally-mandated health care reforms come.

Commissioner Mark Larson says there have been frustrations with the website, but the numbers show the process is on the right track.

The goal is to ensure no one sees a lapse in coverage because of issues with the website. He says he's confident the goal can be achieved.

About 39,300 Vermonters will be covered in January by reforms mandated by the Affordable Care Act.
