    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.
