Governor Shumlin has put a deadline of the end of May for Vermont Health Connect to meet benchmarks.

Governor Shumlin announced recently that the state will drop its health care exchange and move to the federal setup if the problems with Vermont Health Connect aren't fixed by the end of May. But he says he's confident that those benchmarks will be met.

So what is the likelihood of meeting those benchmarks? What happens to those Vermonters who have already enrolled in the Exchange? And why did some states get it right while Vermont struggled to make it work?

Chief of Health Care Reform Lawrence Miller answers those questions.
