As a member of the Vermont Coalition of Clinics for the Uninsured (VCCU), it has been incumbent upon us to help our patients apply for health insurance. Since 2013, funded by a grant through the Department of Vermont Health Access, we have employed a Vermont Health Connect Certified Application Counselor to help not only Open Door Clinic’s patients, but all community members alike navigate Vermont Health Connect and apply for health insurance.
Our end goal is to enroll each one of our patients into an insurance program so that they may find a permanent medical home.
Do you need help with health insurance? Give Melanie Clark a call at 802-989-6872.
In 2021, our Vermont Health Connect Certified Application Counselor, Melanie Clark, had 335 consults at our Clinics and over the phone, and enrolled 193 patients in health insurance.
