On Saturday, Dec. 7, Vermont Health Connect is hosting enrollment assistance events at 10 computer labs across the state. Although none of these labs is in Addison County, there is one nearby in Hinesburg at Champlain Valley Union High School that day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The events focus on Vermonters who are purchasing health insurance plans on their own, as opposed to getting coverage through an employer.
Participants will be able to set up accounts, see if they qualify for financial help, and compare health plans. Vermont Health Connect staff and Navigators will also be on hand to provide assistance and answer questions about the enrollment process.
