How does eligibility and/or enrollment in other coverage affect my eligibility?

If you are eligible for coverage through an employer (yours, or a household member’s) that is affordable and provides minimum essential coverage, then you are not eligible for financial assistance through Connect for Health Colorado. If you are enrolled in coverage through an employer (yours or a household member’s), whether or not it is affordable or provides minimum essential coverage, then you are not eligible for financial assistance through the Marketplace.

If you are eligible for Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program), then you are not eligible for financial assistance through the Marketplace. You are welcome to purchase a health insurance plan through the Marketplace at full price. If you are receiving financial assistance and become eligible for Health First Colorado, your eligibility for financial assistance will end and you may want to cancel your private insurance plan to avoid being charged full price.

If you are eligible for Medicare, regardless of whether or not you are enrolled in it, you are not eligible to purchase coverage through the Marketplace.
