- Denver: 16th Street Mall, intersection of 16th and California.

Certified Brokers/Agents and Health Coverage Guides will be available to provide one-on-one assistance to customers at each walk-in location.
Customers will be able to renew existing policies or purchase new coverage during the Open Enrollment Period, which runs Nov. 15, 2014 to Feb. 15, 2015. Whether you are renewing or enrolling for the first time, you must complete enrollment by Dec. 15, 2014, to have coverage start on Jan. 1, 2015, and avoid a gap in your insurance.
“We know that finding the right policy can be complicated. That’s why, in addition to the tools and information on our website, we suggest Coloradans take advantage of free, in-person help in every county of our state from a statewide network of trained and certified Health Coverage Guides and Brokers,” said Benshoof. “These are experts who can help explain the differences in plans, benefits and costs, and help you through the financial application and enrollment process.”
There are more than 1,550 independent brokers and agents, and more than 400 Health Coverage Guides and Certified Application Counselors. To find them in your area (search by zip code) go to connectforhealthco.com/help-center/
