Full-Cost Individual Direct Enrollment

What is Full-Cost Direct Enrollment?

To “direct enroll” is to sign up for health insurance through a health insurance company. It is an alternative to signing up through Vermont Health Connect. “Full-cost” means that Vermonters who choose to enroll directly cannot get financial help. Eligible Vermonters who want tax credits and other financial help must enroll through Vermont Health Connect. 

This process is for people who buy insurance on their own, not through an employer. Are you sure your income is to high to get financial help? If so, it might make sense to direct enroll.

I'm not sure my income is too high to get financial help. Can I transfer from Full-Cost Direct Enrollment to Vermont Health Connect?

Yes. Eligible direct enrolled customers can transfer their plan to Vermont Health Connect at any time. They do not need to wait for an enrollment period.

More Vermonter with higher incomes may now qualify for financial help. But they must sign up with Vermont Health Connect.
