The Assister Program’s mission is to help Vermonters in enrolling and maintaining appropriate healthcare coverage. In person assisters are positioned in communities throughout the state to help Vermonters understand their health care options. Assisters can help identify coverage that meets your needs and budget. They can also help complete an initial application, access financial help if you qualify, report changes and make updates to your account as needed.
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.
