Health care meetings rescheduled after storm


WINOOSKI (AP) -- A meeting planned to help Nepali and Somali Bantu residents of Vermont understand the state’s new health care system has been rescheduled following this week’s snowstorm.

The informational session, which had been planned for this past Wednesday, will take place Tuesday night, Marach 18, from 5:30-7 at the Community Health Center in Burlington.

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

The meeting is intended to help Nepali and Somali Bantu residents get coverage by enrolling in Vermont Health Connect, the state’s new insurance exchange. A light meal and child care will be provided at the meeting.
