DENVER — Connect for Health Colorado has opened 13 walk-in Enrollment Centers in 11 cities across Colorado.
These “retail sites” have set up shop in Adams County, Southeast Denver/Aurora, Colorado Springs, downtown Denver, Fort Collins (2), Grand Junction (2), Greeley, Lafayette, Lakewood, Pueblo, and Wheat Ridge. Connect for Health Colorado is working with its partners and statewide Assistance Network to ensure certified brokers/agents and Health Coverage Guides are available to provide free, one-on-one assistance to customers at each walk-in location. No appointment is necessary to receive help.
“We want to make it easier to choose a health insurance plan, and one of the best ways for us to do that is to meet with customers face to face,” said Chief Marketing Officer Linda Kanamine. “Brokers, Health Coverage Guides and Connect for Health Colorado teams are working hard to reach Coloradans and assist them where they live.”
