It’s just been a week since we closed the books on our eighth Open Enrollment Period. We announced that nearly 180,000 Coloradans enrolled. While Open Enrollment has officially ended, please remind members of your community that they can still enroll if they have a life-changing event, such as losing job-based health coverage or losing income.
Also this week, Connect for Health Colorado staff and I enjoyed connecting to our rural communities at the Voices of Rural Colorado joint legislative visit. This annual event is hosted by Club 20 (Western Slope counties), Action 22 (southeast Colorado and San Luis Valley) and Progressive 15 (northeast Colorado) to bring leaders together to discuss rural issues with legislators and hear from state and federal elected officials about their legislative agendas. While the event was virtual this year, I hope that next year we can do this in person.
