Crunch Time is Here

As the December 15 deadline nears, thanks for staying the course

To Our Valued Stakeholders,

As we announced this week, the pace of plan selections continues to run ahead of previous years, but there are plenty of people yet to act to avoid a gap in coverage. With just more than a week until the December 15 deadline, we know we owe it to many of you for the success of getting Coloradans covered so far.

There is a flurry of activity to make sure people enroll to have Jan. 1 coverage. This weekend, assisters are offering walk-in enrollment events in Aurora, Montrose and Fort Collins. We’re excited to host Get Covered Sunday events in partnership with the Colorado Black Health Collaborative at churches in Aurora and Denver. Our calendar is full of events running through to the end of Open Enrollment.

I was also pleased to host Sen. Rhonda Fields in our office recently for a conversation about why it’s important to get enrolled. Take a look at this video of her helping us get the word out. Her support is having an impact.

We met with our legislative oversight committee this week to update members on our progress this Open Enrollment Period and on our strategic plan. We value the collaboration and partnership we have with this committee.

In the News

We are pleased with the news coverage of our Open Enrollment this week, including this piece in Colorado Sun. I was also featured on Colorado Health Institute’s podcast, the Checkup.

Thank you for your continued hard work and for staying the course this sixth Open Enrollment period.

Take care,
