To be eligible to buy health insurance through Connect for Health Colorado, an individual must:
(1) Be lawfully present in the United States;
(2) Reside in and/or be a resident of Colorado;
(3) Not be incarcerated.
Individuals who are not eligible to buy a health insurance plan through Connect for Health Colorado can still apply for others in their household who are eligible. For example, parents who are not lawfully present can still enroll their children in health insurance through Connect for Health Colorado if their children are eligible and the parents are not applying.
Keep in mind, not everyone who qualifies to buy health insurance through Connect for Health Colorado will be eligible for financial help. Often, individuals and families who qualify for other minimum essential coverage, either through a job or a government-sponsored program, will not qualify for financial help through Connect for Health Colorado.
