Do you need health insurance?

In most cases, Vermonters who didn't apply for health insurance by March 31 will have to wait for 2015 open enrollment. Exceptions include Vermonters who qualify for Medicaid or Dr. Dynasaur (who can apply anytime of year) and individuals and families who have a  qualifying event (who can generally apply within 60 days after the event).
