Connect for Health Colorado Offers Funding Opportunity for Expanded Enrollment Assistance

Applications open now through April 25th

DENVER— Connect for Health Colorado, the state’s official health insurance marketplace, is accepting applications from new and returning organizations, as well as licensed Brokers, to operate Assistance Sites and Enrollment Centers across the state.

“Assistance Sites and Enrollment Centers provide a crucial one-on-one service to help Coloradans get covered,” said Connect for Health Colorado’s Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Patterson. “They help us make sure local communities, especially those who face barriers to health coverage, can access the plans and savings we offer. I encourage interested organizations and current partners to apply for this opportunity.”

Assistance Sites provide staff who support their local communities with education, health insurance literacy and the enrollment process for Connect for Health Colorado’s marketplace as well as Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid program) and the Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) program. Enrollment Centers across the state also offer health coverage assistance and can receive matching funds for marketing.
