The open enrollment period for buying (or changing) a 2018 Vermont Health Connect plan is November 1 to December 15, 2017. Please note that this deadline is earlier than in past years. When you sign up for a health plan during this time, your plan will start January 1.

Worried About CSRs?
Despite the recent news, Vermonters who qualify for cost-sharing reductions (CSRs) and premium tax credits will continue to get them. Cost-sharing reductions lower your co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles under certain Vermont Health Connect plans. Premium tax credits also help lower the costs of Vermont Health Connect premiums. We advise Vermonters with these plans to continue paying their premiums and using their health plans as usual.
