Application Period for Organizations Interested in Assisting Coloradans Seeking Health Insurance Coverage and Financial Assistance is Open

The Connect for Health Colorado® Certified Application Counselor program designates organizations throughout the state to provide application assistance to consumers seeking financial assistance for health coverage through the state health insurance Marketplace.

The CAC Program is an initiative that engages partner organizations to support Connect for Health Colorado’s efforts to provide Coloradans access to affordable health coverage. It is an opportunity for healthcare providers and organizations who already perform application assistance for health coverage programs to become Certified Application Counselor Designated Organizations. This program is implemented in compliance with federal rules and applicants must meet the Connect for Health Colorado criteria, including privacy and security standards. Connect for Health Colorado does not provide funding to Designated Organizations for performing this customer assistance.
