Important Message: To enroll in a qualified health plan through Vermont Health Connect, you must sign up during an enrollment period. Open Enrollment typically starts in November and lasts for about six weeks. At other times of year, you may still be able to enroll in coverage if you lose health coverage or have another qualifying event, but you’ll need to act fast. If you delay for more than 60 days to apply and select your plan, you might have to wait until Open Enrollment to get health insurance.
