Vermont Health Connect
Vermont’s Health Care commissioner is apologizing for not being more forthcoming with a legislative committee when he was explaining the details of a security breach in the system last month.
Officials overseeing the Vermont Health Connect website confirmed Friday there was a security breach on the system last month in which one user got improper access to another user’s Social Security number and other data.
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.
