    Welcome to Vermont Health Connect

    Vermont Health Connect (VHC) is the State of Vermont’s health insurance marketplace, where eligible Vermonters can get health insurance with financial help. There are two types of health insurance you can get through VHC. Which one you get depends on what you are eligible for. You may be able to get a qualified health plan or Medicaid for Children and Adults, including Dr. Dynasaur. 

    What health coverage do we offer?

    You and your family have many quality options. You can compare health plans and apply for assistance that could lower the cost of coverage.

    Medicaid or Dr. Dynasaur offers free, or low-cost, health coverage. Learn more >>

    Qualified health plans (QHP) provide essential health benefits and set limits on the maximum amount a customer pays during the plan year. Most Vermonters who are eligible for a QHP get financial help paying for their plan. Learn more >>

    When can I apply for health coverage?

    If eligible, you can enroll in Medicaid or Dr. Dynasaur anytime.

    Open Enrollment runs yearly, from November 1 to January 15. It is the time you can sign up for a qualified health plan and a dental plan. Or you can change the Plan you have.

    Some life changes let you have a Special Enrollment Period. This is the only time you can sign up for new coverage or change plans outside of Open Enrollment. Learn more >>

    IMPORTANT! You can get financial help for a qualified health plan ONLY if you sign up through Vermont Health Connect.


    Financial help for Health Insurance

    Do you want help to pay for your insurance? Health insurance costs change every year. Check to see if you can get financial help now, even if you couldn't before.

    • See how much you can save money if you qualify. Vermonters with qualifying incomes can get financial help through 2025.
    • If you can get health insurance from your job, you can only get financial help from VHC if that insurance is not adequate or affordable. Insurance from you job is called employer-sponsored insurance.
