Short Term Health Insurance In Vermont

Vermont is one of five other states that regulates and prohibits carriers from offering any kind of underwritten health insurance plan with a limited duration to its residents, such as a short term health insurance plan. In addition to Vermont, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island also prohibit short term health insurance plan offerings.

If a Vermont resident is uninsured, they will have to wait until the next Open Enrollment Period (runs November 1st through December 15th each year) to get insured. The State of Vermont uses a state exchange to enroll its residents into major medical plans under the Affordable Care Act, which is called Vermont Health Connect.
