2019 Eligibility Tables

Vermont Health Connect (VHC) is the state of Vermont’s health benefit exchange. Vermonters with qualifying incomes may get financial help paying for their VHC health plan. The tables below show the type of financial help you can if you have an income that qualifies. The tables are based on the Federal Poverty Level, which is updated each year by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). You can compare your Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) to the tables below to find out if you’re likely eligible for financial help.
