Vermont Health Connect again delays website update
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A plan to upgrade the Vermont Health Connect website to allow users to make small changes to their health insurance accounts is being delayed again.
The state's contractor for the website was supposed to have the change-of-function live on the health insurance website by May 21, which was later pushed back to Sunday. Now there is going to be another delay while the system is tested.
Department of Vermont Health Access Commissioner Mark Larson says good progress is being made, but the change is not yet ready for public use.
Currently corrections and changes to insurance applications are processed by hand. There is a backlog of 10,000 applications awaiting changes. The state is planning to bring in another contractor to help clear up the backlog.
