DENVER— Today, Bright Health informed the Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI) that it will withdraw from Colorado’s health insurance market for the 2023 plan year.

Chief Executive Officer of Connect for Health Colorado, Kevin Patterson, released the following statement:

“With the Open Enrollment Period less than one month away, we’ll be at the ready to help Bright Health enrollees find the right plan for next year. I’m confident in the number of health plans and the quality of the plans that will be available for Coloradans shopping on our Marketplace for 2023. And, if you’re worried that your current plan won’t be available in the coming year or no longer meet your needs, remember that Connect for Health Colorado has the tools and experts to help you navigate changes to your health insurance situation, so that you can stay covered.”

Customers that have Bright Health plans for this current year will be able to use their health insurance through the end of the year.

The Open Enrollment Period for customers to enroll in a 2023 health insurance plan is November 1, 2022 to January 15, 2023.
