Monday was the deadline for Vermonters to sign up for health care through Vermont Health Connect. But, if you didn’t sign up, you still have more time.

During an interview Monday, Mark Larson, commissioner of Vermont Health Access, said that isn’t a hard deadline. Larson said that although the deadline wasn’t ‘officially’ extended, the state will try to accommodate those who sign up and pay their first premium by the end of the year.

“We will work with Blue Cross and MVP and our premium processor to make sure we can accommodate as many Vermonters as we can throughout this week in getting them through their plan selection and still have their coverage by January 1,” Larson said.

If you don’t sign up before the end of the year, you can still do it in 2014. The deadline will be the 15th of every month to have your coverage by the first of the next month.
