VT Health Connect Announces Finalized Rates

Vermont Health Connect has announced the finalized rates for the health insurance marketplace.
WINOOSKI, Vt. - Vermont Health Connect has announced the finalized rates for the health insurance marketplace.

According to a press release, through Vermont Health Connect, Vermonters will be able to compare up to 18 plans and premiums side-by-side and, for many, have access to financial help to lower the cost of the plans.

“I am very pleased that Vermont is the first state in the nation to finalize both its premiums and its choices for its health insurance marketplace,” said Governor Peter Shumlin. “We are committed to bringing Vermonters a clear, affordable way to choose health insurance this fall.”

Plans will be offered at four levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The costs of each level will vary the amount of premium vs. out-of-pocket costs. Vermont Health Access says all of the plans offer the same quality benefits, including preventative care, mental health services, and dental and vision coverage for children.

The lowest rates, before financial help, for individual monthly premiums at each level is $347.80 for Bronze, $426.32 for Silver, $505.45 for Gold, and $588.55 for Platinum. Catastrophic plans are available to some people under 30 years old, and adults can purchase Delta Dental benefits.

Vermonters can start comparing the plans starting in October.
