Important Message: To get health insurance, you must sign up during an enrollment period. Vermont Health Connect’s Open Enrollment starts November 1 and ends December 15. Eligible Vermonters can sign up for a qualified health plan during Open Enrollment. At other times, you can get a 60-day Special Enrollment Period if you have a major life event, such as losing your health insurance. Vermonters who are eligible for Medicaid can enroll at any time.
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.
