Vermont Health Connect - Vermont's Health Insurance Marketplace
Open enrollment for health coverage through Vermont Health Connect (VHC) ends on December 15, 2017. Vermonters who do not have health coverage, or would like to change an existing plan for 2018, must do so by December 15, 2017.
VTLIB is working with VHC to spread the word about open enrollment, and we are asking our libraries to share this information with patrons. Below are some materials that can shared via your website/Facebook, placed on a bulletin board in your library, or even submitted to a local newspaper. We're counting on you to help Vermonters get the coverage they need!
- Link to VHC website, where patrons can find information about plans and sign up, as well as access a help line or find an in-person assister: https://portal.healthconnect.vermont.gov/VTHBELand/welcome.action
