To wrap up the last week of Black History Month, I participated in an interview with Denver’s DJKTONE for his Black Excellence Series on Instagram Live Wednesday evening. In addition, Connect for Health Colorado is presenting during the Center for African American Health’s Collaborative Black Health Summit this Friday and Saturday.
Nationally, we are closely following the proposed American Rescue Plan as Congress debates its provisions. The current draft of the Plan includes proposed changes to the Advanced Premium Tax Credit structure, which could drastically increase the amount of financial help available, as well as the number of people eligible to receive these benefits. Our staff is reviewing the plan closely and taking early steps to make sure we are ready to implement these changes, should the bill pass.
Meanwhile, we are continuing to remind any Coloradans who are not insured that they have the opportunity to enroll through our Uninsured Enrollment Period. Thank you for continuing to spread the word.
