This week, I had the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C., to meet with CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, HHS Deputy Secretary Andrea Palm, members of the Biden Administration and Congressional staff. Several other State Based Marketplace leaders and I joined together to push for the continuation of the American Rescue Plan subsidies and benefits that recently helped so many more people gain access to affordable health plans. Because these benefits are set to expire at the end of the year, we urged Congress to renew these affordability measures for our customers.
Summer is the busy season for our staff to get out into the community. We’ll be at events across the state throughout the summer to build awareness about Connect for Health Colorado and encourage people to come shop with us during Open Enrollment. In the coming weeks, here are a few places you will find us:
- Black Pride Colorado Family Cookout on June 19
- Denver’s Juneteenth Celebration
- Denver Pride 5K on June 25
- El Paso County Fair on July 16
- Fremont County Fair on July 29
