A Whole New (Remote) World

To Our Valued Stakeholders,

As summer sets in and the heat is rising, I’ve taken a step back to reflect on the how we’ve been forwarding our mission in a new remote world.

We’ve supported the community by sponsoring remote events, such as Denver Pride’s Virtual 5k. Our Assistance Network Team recently completed 17 virtual site visits, with an eye toward how we plan for a more remote Open Enrollment come November. Our Policy Team remained actively involved during the condensed end to our legislative session, which included online submission of our testimony in support of two bills that ultimately passed.

Our staff is spending time considering what the rest of the year’s event itinerary might look like, including how we will run the CoverCo conference and my annual visits across the state. We will update you as these events get closer, and as we develop creative ways to accomplish our work with you remotely.

New Laws Will Forward Our Mission

As I’ve mentioned in my last few posts, we are thrilled that Colorado continues to innovate on solutions to provide Coloradans access to affordable health coverage. I shared my thoughts on two bills that Governor Polis signed into law this week.

We’ve already begun internal conversations on implementation for these two new laws, and we look forward to collaborating with several partners in the weeks and months to come. On that note, our Board of Directors has opened the application process for the Easy Enrollment committee. Please share this application with those who are interested and qualified.
