Broker Program

Do you prefer real people to websites and telephones? Brokers are available now to help individual Vermonters, small employers, and their employees understand their health care options.  Brokers are able to assist you with finding a health plan that meets your needs and budget, completing an application, and, if you qualify, accessing financial help.
