Enrollment Process

If your business employs up to 100 employees, you can select any or all of our qualified health plans to offer to your employees.

Open Enrollment has closed for 2022, but you can still review the below process to see available plans and determine which may best meet your employees’ needs and your budget.

Updating Your Current Coverage

If you need to enroll a new employee in your group coverage or making changes to your existing coverage, you can do this through Employer Resource CenterFor helpful tips and guidelines for managing your existing account, visit the Member Maintenance page, where you can also find the needed forms for making changes to your group coverage.

Enrolling in a New Plan

The health plans you offer your employees play a significant role in determining their access to care and its cost. Consider these steps if you are enrolling your group in a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont Health Plan for the first time.
  1. Review Our Plans

    We offer 13 plan options for your small business. You can select any or all of our plan offerings for your employees. If you have any questions about options available to your group, contact our team at (800) 255-4550 or by email consumersupport@bcbsvt.com

    You can also use our plan comparison chart to learn more about the available plans.

  2. Select Your Plan(s)

    Select the health plan(s) that best meets yours and your employees' health care and budget need. 

    Many employers find the Plan Selection Form to be a useful resource to provide employees during open enrollment. This form allows you to show your employees what plan(s) you are offering and what contribution amounts are.

  3. Notify Your Employees

    Federal law requires employers provide their employees with a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) at certain times. You will need to distribute a SBC for each plan you will be offering. Learn more about your SBC distribution requirements.

    While not required to provide your employees, our Employer-Sponsored Health Plan Brochure for Employees may be a helpful resource to share with your team.

    Access SBCs (the SBC documents can be found the in the Our Plan Options section of the page)

  4. Enroll Your Business

    You may either submit your enrollment online or download and submit the New Small Group Enrollment Packet. If you download the packet you may return it to us by one of three ways: email it to consumersupport@bcbsvt.com; fax to (802) 371-3719; or mail to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont P.O.

Help Paying for Coverage

You may qualify for a small business tax credit if you have up to 25 full-time employees, pay average annual wages below $50k and provide health insurance. Learn more.

Employees are not eligible for tax credits or subsidies if they are receiving affordable coverage through an employer-offered health care plan. To learn more about affordable coverage, employees can go to Vermont Health Connect.
