For 2022 health plans, Vermont open enrollment has ended. However, you may still be able to purchase health insurance for this year if you qualify for a special enrollment period. For example, if you’ve recently lost your job or income due to the COVID-19 crisis or for any other reason, you might qualify for a 60-day special enrollment period that will allow you to sign up for a new health insurance plan.

To get covered, you can go directly to the online health insurance marketplace for Vermont. If you need personalized help, you can reach out to an enrollment assistant. Most enrollment helpers are working remotely during the COVID crisis.
Where's the Vermont Health Care Exchange?
You can find the health insurance exchange for Vermont at Vermont Health Connect. This is where you can learn about the various health insurance options available to you under Obamacare. If you see a plan you like, you'll be guided through the enrollment process online.
Getting Personalized Help with Enrollment
In Vermont, if you need help understanding your options for coverage under Obamacare or signing up for a plan, you can get free help from an enrollment assistant or from a licensed health care agent or broker.
An enrollment assistant can explain your options, answer your questions, and help you apply for the plan you choose -- but they can’t legally recommend a specific plan for you.
To find a Vermont certified assistant, see Find an Assister at Vermont Health Connect. You can then search for helpers near you.
Private insurance agents or brokers can also help you understand your health care coverage options under Obamacare. Unlike government trained assistants, they are allowed to suggest the best plan for you.
To directly connect with a Vermont insurance broker who can help you evaluate insurance plans and choose a plan that's appropriate for your situation, call 800-943-6832. (We receive advertising income from the licensed brokers who offer their services through this telephone number.)
