Vt. health officials questioned on website woes

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- Senior officials with the administration of Gov. Peter Shumlin are getting tough questions from lawmakers about the troubled performance of the Vermont Health Connect health insurance exchange.

Rep. Chris Pearson, a Burlington Progressive and member of the House Health Care Committee, questioned Tuesday whether lawmakers were given "sugar-coated" answers in September when they asked if the system would be ready for an Oct. 1 launch.

Commissioner Mark Larson of the Department of Vermont Health Access said that as of the Sept. 12 hearing, he knew there was much work to do to get the system up and running, but thought the state and its main vendor were on track.

Larson acknowledged widespread frustration among Vermonters about slowness and system failures on the Vermont Health Connect website.
