Expanding Choice for This Open Enrollment

To Our Valued Stakeholders,

The heat of summer is upon us — I hope you are finding ways to stay cool while staying healthy.

This week, I visited (virtually) with Club 20 members and was thrilled to share recent news from the Division of Insurance that more Coloradans will have a choice in insurance companies during this Open Enrollment Period, as the state has decreased the number of counties with only one issuer from 22 to 10. This is an improvement in choice for many of Colorado’s rural communities.

Getting the word out about Special Enrollment Periods

We know that job loss in Colorado is at an all-time high and with that comes loss of job-based health insurance. To help get the word out about getting covered through Connect for Health Colorado, our Marketing team created an online Job Loss Toolkit for you to use. The toolkit includes electronic versions of a short flyer, our overview brochure (both in English and Spanish), our financial help chart, social media images and copy, and a 10 minute video about health insurance options after job loss. I’d ask that you share the link with your networks as you see fit.

Be well,

Kevin Patterson, MURP, MPA
