Kevin Goddard, spokesman for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont agreed, calling the rates to be charged when people buy his company's insurance through Vermont Health Connect "comparable" to what they would pay without the exchange in place.

Rates being offered for the benchmark so-called "silver plan" for individuals will be a bit less than $395 per month for individuals buying a Blue Cross Blue Shield product, and $410 a month for those buying a similar policy form MVP Health Care. Those prices are similar to what an individual pays now for a similar suite of coverage options, Goddard said.

"Until we see that the system is tested and the functions, you know, work, and work cleanly and efficiently, we remain unsettled with large populations moving into a system that's not fully tested and completed," said Kevin Goddard, vice-president of external communications for BlueCross BlueShield of Vermont.

Goddard testified Thursday before the House Committee on Health Care and said that of the 54,000 Vermonters Shumlin referred to Tuesday, many are enrolled in plans that won't exist after March.
Goddard told lawmakers that if Vermont wants to get those people into the plans being sold on the exchange, then it needs to resolve the technology issues that have so far prevented compatibility between the websites of the exchange and the websites of private insurers.
"With all that work that's been done, the work in front of us remains very significant," Goddard said. "In fact, there's still a higher ground to climb, and that is that we have almost twice as many folks who are queued up to go into Vermont Health Connect in the next couple months as have gone into qualified health plans so far."
Goddard said it's going take time to process that kind of volume. And he said if the information technology glitches aren't fixed by the end of the January, then the state will need to trigger a contingency plan.
