VT Businesses Urged to Sign Up Directly With Health Insurance Providers

Vermont Health Access is recommending small businesses who have yet to enroll to do so directly with Blue Cross Blue Shield or MVP.
WINOOSKI, Vt. - Vermont Health Access is recommending small businesses who have yet to enroll to do so directly with Blue Cross Blue Shield or MVP.

A press release says the recommendation comes after some uncertainty with the payment feature on the website. Testing is still ongoing.

"We do not have confidence that online premium processing for small businesses will be completed in time to provide a convenient transition for small business owners and their employees," said DVHA Commissioner Mark Larson. "Making the decision now to support direct carrier enrollment ends the uncertainty and gives those small businesses that have extended their 2013 plans the maximum amount of time to make important health care decisions for their employees."

Any business who has already enrolled in a Vermont Health Connect plan for all of 2014 doesn't need to take any further action.

Vermont Health Access says individuals who do not have access to insurance through work should continue to sign up online, through a Navigator, broker, or the call center.

Businesses and individuals have until April 1 to pick a Vermont Health Connect plan.
