What is VEHI?
The Vermont Education Health Initiative (VEHI) is a large, non-profit purchaser of health care plans for Vermont's school employees. This self-funded, fully-insured purchasing trust is managed jointly by the Vermont School Boards Insurance Trust (VSBIT) and the Vermont-National Education Association (Vermont-NEA).
VEHI purchases health plans on behalf of Vermont's public school employees, including teachers, administrators, secretaries, custodians, bus drivers and all other school district employees.
VEHI's mission is to purchase high-quality health care services in a cost-effective manner on behalf of its members. As a voluntary consumer/purchaser alliance, VEHI plays an active role in all areas of health plan delivery including design, financing, marketing, risk management, wellness, consumer education and customer service.
