Welcome to Vermont Health Connect
Vermont Health Connect is the State of Vermont’s health insurance marketplace. Eligible Vermonters can get financial help paying for coverage when they enroll in a qualified health plan through Vermont Health Connect. Vermont Health Connect also offers Medicaid for Children and Adults to eligible Vermonters, including Dr. Dynasaur.
During an enrollment period, any eligible Vermonter can buy a qualified health plan through Vermont Health Connect. Vermonters with incomes below 400% of the federal poverty level can also get financial help paying for coverage, but only if they do not have an offer of employer-sponsored insurance or government insurance. If you are offered health insurance through a job, you won’t be able to get financial help from Vermont Health Connect unless you can prove that insurance is not adequate or affordable.
To get health insurance, you must sign up during an enrollment period. Vermont Health Connect’s Open Enrollment starts November 1 and lasts about six weeks. Eligible Vermonters can sign up for a qualified health plan during Open Enrollment. At other times, you can get a 60-day Special Enrollment Period if you have a major life event, such as losing your health insurance. Vermonters who are eligible for Medicaid can enroll at any time.
- More financial help will be available through the new American Rescue Plan. Learn more here.
- Due to the COVID-19 emergency, Vermont has made several programmatic changes to allow Vermonters to access health insurance. Please visit the Eligibility and Enrollment section on the Department of Vermont Health Access COVID-19 page for more information.
