Are you eligible for the Special Enrollment Period?
Open Enrollment ended on Jan. 31 but Coloradans with special circumstances may still be able to apply. Individuals and families who are shopping for new health insurance coverage because their health insurance company is no longer offering health plans in their area will be permitted to enroll in new coverage through March 1. This includes all individuals and families, regardless of whether or not they purchased their 2016 health insurance through Connect for Health Colorado. These individuals include:
- Those whose 2016 coverage was with Rocky Mountain Health Plans and are located outside of Mesa County.
- Those whose 2016 coverage was with UnitedHealthcare, Humana or Anthem (PPO plans).
- Those whose 2016 coverage was with another health insurance company but was not offered for renewal in 2017.
