Open Enrollment For Vermont Health Connect Underway Through December 15

Nov 5, 2018

Open enrollment is underway on Vermont’s health insurance marketplace, Vermont Health Connect. Sean Sheehan, deputy director of the Department of Vermont Health Access, sheds some light on what’s changed this year, and he has this advice: "This is not the year to auto-renew."

The good news is that if people spend some time comparison shopping for health insurance plans, this year it could actually yield some big savings — according to Sheehan, uninsured Vermonters might even be able to get a plan for less in 2019 than they could at any point in the last five years.

Vermont Health Connect's Plan Comparison Tool helps people figure out what plan is best for them. The open enrollment deadline is Dec. 15.
