Important Message: To get health insurance, you must sign up during an enrollment period. Vermont Health Connect has a Special Enrollment Period open now through October 1, and uninsured Vermonters can enroll in a qualified health plan during this time. Under the American Rescue Plan Act, Vermonters can get more financial help when they enroll through Vermont Health Connect. Vermonters who have insurance directly through Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont or MVP Health Care® can transfer their plan to Vermont Health Connect now to get premium tax credits.  Vermonters who are eligible for Medicaid can enroll at any time.

2021 Quality Rating Scores

Under the Affordable Care Act, the federal government is required to rate qualified health plans (QHPs) based on quality and price to assist customers in selection of plans. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is the federal government agency that gives these ratings to insurance companies.

Due to the COVID-19 state of emergency, the QRS program has been temporarily suspended. For the 2021 plan year, there will be no QRS star ratings for Vermont Health Connect issuers. We anticipate that the QRS ratings will resume for plan year 2022.
