The state has setup a website called HealthConnect.Vermont.gov, where residents can purchase a plan during the Open Enrollment Period. This website was setup by the Department of Vermont Health Access, which is also part of the State of Vermont’s Agency of Human Services.

When the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010, the federal government gave each state the option to either create a federally facilitated marketplace or a state-based marketplace. In Vermont, they chose the latter because they wanted to preserve certain unique health care reforms that were passed in the state.

This means many individuals, families, and small business can purchase their health insurance plans through HealthConnect.Vermont.gov. All plans offered through the state-based marketplace cover the essential health benefits. With the platinum plan, you pay the highest premium but you don’t have to shell out any money when you receive your medical services.

With a bronze plan, it’s essentially the reverse, where you pay a smaller premium but you’ll have to pay a decent sum of money each time you use the medical services. Before you choose a plan though, it’s always important to shop around and compare everything. Give us a call at 855-614-5057 for some industry insight today!
