How do I sign up?
Open Enrollment for 2024 health and dental plans is underway. It usually runs from November 1 to January 15 every year. It is the time you can sign up for qualified health plans and dental plans through VHC. Or you can change the Plan you have. Sign up by 12/15 for a plan to start 1/1/24 OR sign up by 1/15/24 for a plan to start on 2/1/24.
- IMPORTANT! You can get financial help for a qualified health plan ONLY if you sign up through Vermont Health Connect.
Eligible Vermonters can sign up for Medicaid or Dr. Dynasaur at any time. These programs offer free, or low-cost, health coverage for eligible Vermonters.
Some life changes let you have a Special Enrollment Period which lets you sign up for coverage or change the plan you already have. This is the only time you can sign up for new coverage or change plans outside of Open Enrollment. To learn more, click here.
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.
