COVID-19 FAQ

I’m uninsured and worried about healthcare costs if I get sick. How can I get health insurance?

Vermonters who are eligible for Medicaid can apply and enroll at any time.

Vermonters who are uninsured and are not eligible for Medicaid can get a Qualified Health Plan during Open Enrollment, which runs from November 1, 2022, to January 15, 2023. If you sign up by December 15, your insurance will start on January 1, 2023. Please call us at 1-855-899-9600 to sign up.

I got a letter from Vermont Health Connect asking for documents. What should I do?

Carefully read the entire letter to understand what is being asked. If you have any questions, please call us at 1-855-899-9600. There are many options for getting us documents:

  • Mail copies to Vermont Health Connect;
  • Take pictures and use the secure document uploader; or
  • Bring copies of proof to an Economic Services Division district office.

If you need help to upload documents, contact a local Assister. If you need to print documents, use a library or local business with computer and printing services.

Vermont Health Connect will resume checking the income of new Medicaid applicants when needed. This will not affect existing Medicaid members.

My children are covered by Dr. Dynasaur and I have a premium. I can’t pay right now—will my children lose their health coverage?

No—we will not send a bill for Dr. Dynasaur premiums during the emergency period, and no one will lose Dr. Dynasaur coverage for nonpayment during this time. After the emergency ends, you will get Dr. Dynasaur bills again and should plan to pay your monthly Dr. Dynasaur bill like you used to.

I have Medicaid coverage, but I think it’s time for my annual review. Will I lose coverage?

No—Medicaid reviews are on hold during the emergency period. Your review will be rescheduled to a later month.
