At this time of year, usually what keeps us busy is wrapping up all the data from our last enrollment period. We are happy to provide that data through our By the Numbers report. This year we decided to take the report in a new, more virtual direction. We added new sections including an interactive media library and statewide maps to help you understand the impact of our work in your community. I thank my Marketing team for getting creative, and encourage you to take a look.
In addition to the report, we also shared that nearly 10,000 additional Coloradans have enrolled since Feb. 8, when we reopened a Special Enrollment Period.
If that isn’t enough excitement, we are in the final stages of preparing to offer Coloradans more tax credits and extra savings on their health plans, thanks to the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
The Plan aligns with our mission of providing affordable health coverage in Colorado. We are pleased with the opportunity to keep our doors open to new customers and allow them to save on plans for this year, as well as offer more tax credits to current customers. Our systems will be ready for enrollment starting April 15. We will remain open until at least Aug. 15 and will share updates about those additional savings as enrollment continues in the coming months.
Thank you to all of our enrollment partners, as they get ready to help new and current customers take advantage of the savings.
