Upcoming Health Care Informational Events

We have two upcoming informational events regarding health care to share. 

First, there is an onsite informational forum and hands on session with Vermont Health Connect. This Saturday from 9am to 2pm in the CVPS/Leahy Community Health Education Center at Rutland Regional Medical Center three Navigators plus four from CHCRR who will be assisting folks who need to sign up for health insurance. There will be 15 workstations or laptops set up with access to the VHC site so that attendees can view it, and ultimately complete an application. The Navigators will be available to answer questions and provide guidance.

Second, there will be a meeting to discuss the new health care laws as they relate to farmers. It will be held Tuesday, February 11 from 1pm – 3pm at the Vermont State College’s conference room located at 575 Stone Cutters Way in Montpelier (by the Hunger Mt Coop).

Whether or not you attend, you may find this webinar useful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuYI7sgML1k. “In this webinar presented on January 8, 2014 — organized by Mike Ghia and the UVM Extension Farm Viability Program and hosted by the Vermont SARE Social Sustainability on the Farm project — Devon Green and Devon Ayers of Vermont Health Connect described Vermont Health Connect and Affordable Health Care Act information relevant to Vermont farm businesses.”
