Health care meetings for Somali Bantu, Nepali

Posted: Updated:

WINOOSKI, Vt. (AP) - Meetings will be held next week to help Nepali and Somali Bantu residents of Vermont understand the state's new health care system.

The informational sessions will also help them get coverage before the March 15 deadline to enroll in Vermont Health Connect, the state's new insurance exchange.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont is working with Vermont Refugee Resettlement and the Community Health Center to offer the enrollment meetings in the Mai Mai (meye meye) and Nepali languages.

They will be held Monday at The O'Brien Community Center in Winooski and Wednesday at the Community Health Center in Burlington. Both meetings will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and a light dinner will be provided.
