Vermont Education Health Initiative
What is VEHI?
The Vermont Education Health Initiative (VEHI) is a non-profit organization that, for more than two decades, has served school districts by offering employee benefit plans responsive to the needs both of employers and of employees and their dependents. VEHI also provides health insurance benefits to retired teachers and their dependents through the Vermont Teachers' Retirement System.
Our work has three essential components:
1. Making available a range of employee benefit plans, in collaboration with major insurance carriers, that are cost effective, affordable and high-quality;
2. Designing and investing in school-based and post-employment wellness programs that give individuals and families the confidence, support and resources they need to lead healthy, productive lives; and
3. Keeping school districts, local union Associations, and the Vermont State Teachers’ Retirement System informed about the health insurance market, health care reform initiatives and regulatory compliance obligations under federal and state law.
