CoverCO Wrap Up

What an inspiring week. I was pleased to “see” so many of our assisters, brokers, and community partners join us for the virtual CoverCo conference. We had over 700 people register and come together for the last three days, in preparation for the ninth Open Enrollment Period.

Some highlights of the conference included diving into plan distinction, hearing from our issuer partners about plans, assisting mixed eligibility households and how to help small businesses. The keynote speakers, Dr. Dwinita Mosby Tyler and Barbara Rubel, reminded us that we have a lot of work to do to keep equity front and center, while also managing our own compassion fatigue. Dr. Tyler’s personal stories were impactful, and she shared important reminders of how we can practice inclusivity and approach our responsibilities in an equitable way.

If you missed the conference, the materials will still be in the conference platform for a few more days.

I want to specifically thank the Connect for Health Colorado staff and the planning committee who helped organize this virtual conference, as well as the speakers who took time to help us prepare for Open Enrollment.

More to come on Open Enrollment in the coming weeks.

Take care,
