A licensed health insurance agent or broker provides employers, individuals and families, assistance and expert advice with comparing health plans, evaluating benefits and purchasing coverage. Health insurance agents and brokers are an important component of the Connect for Health Colorado Customer Support Network. Many Coloradans have long-standing relationships with their agents and brokers and want to continue that partnership. Many more Coloradans who are new to buying health insurance will seek advice about choosing the best plan for their needs.
Connect for Health Colorado offers agents and brokers the advantage of an enhanced choice model for their small employer clients and the ability to connect individual purchasers to new federal financial assistance to reduce premium costs. Agents and brokers will be paid commissions by carriers, which will be the same inside and outside of Connect for Health Colorado.
