Vermont to require residents to have health insurance

Washington Times - Vermont is poised to require that all residents have health insurance.

Republican Gov. Phil Scott late last month quietly signed into law a bill that will include a penalty for those who don’t have insurance. The mandate is scheduled to take effect in 2020.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed a similar law days later.

The two states join Massachusetts, which has had the mandate for years. A number of other states are considering an insurance requirement.
