CEO Blog: Medical Plan Selections up 29%

To Our Valued Stakeholders

With all the uncertainty in the public policy, many of us did not know what to expect in this Open Enrollment Period. Now, as we approach the midway point, we have reason to be optimistic.

Medical plan selections reached 43,881 in November, a rate that is 29% ahead of the rate in November 2016. You can find more detail in today’s media release.

In the News

Families relying on the Children’s Health Insurance Program, Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) in Colorado, began receiving notices this week that the program will not continue beyond January 31, 2018, unless Congress reauthorizes funding. The program serves more than 75,000 children and 800 pregnant women in our state. We continue to coordinate with the department of Health Care Policy and Financing to move those families to private insurance through Connect for Health Colorado. Although they should continue to use their CHP+ benefits through January, we encourage participants in CHP+ to start researching the options available to them and we have posted information on our site to assist that effort.

Take care,

Kevin
