Enrollment Help Application Cycle Open Now

As many of you know, our network of Brokers and Assisters is critical to ensuring Coloradans have help walking through the enrollment process, as well as delivering outreach and health insurance literacy education to the Colorado community. They help us make sure local communities, especially those who face barriers to health coverage, can access the plans and savings we offer.

That being said, we announced that we are accepting applications from new and returning organizations, as well as licensed Brokers, to operate Assistance Sites and Enrollment Centers across the state for our two-year funding cycle.  We welcome applications from community-based organizations, medical facilities, associations, ranching and farming organizations, chambers of commerce, unions, state and local human service agencies, Certified Brokers/Broker Agencies and other organizations that meet the criteria for selection. The application deadline for funding is April 25.

Thank you for your help sharing this news with any organization that might be interested.

ACA Turns 12

The Affordable Care Act has now been around for 12 years – the official anniversary of the law passing was this week. It is great to honor the national law that allows us to provide tax credits.

When the ACA passed, Colorado had already been studying and building a health insurance marketplace for our state’s residents with that same mission through the Blue Ribbon Commission for Healthcare Reform. In 2011, Connect for Health Colorado was established by the Colorado General Assembly as a public, non-profit entity to create a health insurance marketplace.

In the News

Great Day Colorado did a segment on Tax Time Enrollment. The National Academy for State Health Policy shared commentary and I am quoted in this piece about the affordability for customers this year due to the American Rescue Plan.

Take care,
