Vermont Health Connect Receives Rates from Insurance Companies

WILLISTON, Vt. - Vermont Health Connect is on track to roll out its health insurance program to Vermonters this October.

Thursday they announced the proposed rates from Blue Cross Blue Shield and MVP, the two companies licensed to provide health insurance in Vermont.

They have not approved the rates yet, but if approved these will be the different plans Vermonters will choose from this fall.

The plans go from Bronze, the lowest price, to Platinum, the highest. The plans all cover the same medical treatments. The less expensive plans will require the patient to pay less up front but more out of pocket.

Blue Cross Blue Shield Proposed Monthly Rates:
Single: Range from $362.34-$582.79
Couple: Range from $724.68-$1,165.58
Parent and Child(ren): Range from $699.32-$1,124.78
Family: Range from $1,018.18-$1,637.64

MVP Proposed Monthly Rates:
Single: Range from $366.22-$594.30
Couple: Range from $732.44-1,188.60
Parent and Child(ren): Range from $706.80-$1,147.00
Family: $1,029.08-$1,669.98

The proposed plans also have no co-pays for preventative visits, like your annual physical.

Mark Larson, the Commissioner of the Department of Vermont Health Access, also wants to spread the word about Navigators.

"To this date we've trained almost 170 individuals who will be available to Vermonters in their community to sit down and walk through the information about the plans that are available," Larson said.

He also pointed to a new calculator on the Health Connect website that will help individuals calculate their premium.

Larson says they will announce the final plan options next week.
