CDC recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated, because travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. If you are not fully vaccinated and must travel, follow CDC's recommendations for those who are unvaccinated.

Vermont and New York do not have any state travel restrictions for state residents or for people coming from outside states. 

On November 12, 2020, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Treasury finalized the Transparency in Coverage Rule that requires health insurers and group health plans to create a member-facing price comparison tool and post publicly available machine readable files (MRF's) that include in-network negotiated payment rates and historical out of network charges for covered items and services, including prescriptions drugs. Data in MRF's must be updated monthly. 

This link leads to the machine-readable files that are made available in response to the federal Transparency in Coverage Rule and includes negotiated service rates and out-of-network allowed amounts between health plans and healthcare providers. The machine readable files are formatted to allow researchers, regulators, and application developers to more easily access and analyze data.
