Full Speed Ahead

To Our Valued Stakeholders

We are halfway through Open Enrollment and we know many of you of are assisting enrollments at a record pace. The deadline for January 1 coverage is one week away and our enrollment centers are running full tilt.

We have walk-in enrollment events tomorrow in Aurora, Craig, Fort Collins, Littleton, Longmont, Telluride and Westminster. And that’s just one day. Our calendar is full of events running to the end of Open Enrollment January 12, 2018. Find one near you here.

As I have said, the pace of plan selections continues to run ahead of all previous years but there are plenty of people yet to act to avoid a gap in coverage. Our message remains: Don’t leave money on the table. We know from our own survey that too often Coloradans who are eligible for financial help assume that they make too much to get an Advance Premium Tax Credit.

If you are helping with an enrollment, the first step is to get an estimate of the financial help available.
