Vermonters will be allowed to extend their current health insurance policies through the end of March if problems with the state’s health insurance marketplace can’t be resolved in time for them to be enrolled by the original Jan. 1 date, Gov. Peter Shumlin said Thursday.
Vermont’s lawmakers approved a bill Monday night allowing doctors to prescribe lethal medication to terminally ill patients who request it, making it the first state in the country to give legislative backing to assisted suicide.
