Friday Health Plans Customers Must Enroll in New Health Insurance by August 31 to Prevent a Gap in Coverage

So far, about 46 percent of these customers have picked a new plan

DENVER— Friday Health Plans customers have about two and half weeks to choose a new health insurance plan before their current health insurance coverage ends. Connect for Health Colorado, the state’s official health insurance marketplace, is urging Friday Health Plans customers to sign up for a new plan before the end of the month to avoid a gap in coverage.

Through July 2023, there were roughly 24,500 Friday Health Plan enrollments on Connect for Health Colorado’s marketplace and an additional 700 Friday Health Plans enrollments on Colorado Connect, its public benefit corporation and online platform. As of August 14, about 46 percent of those marketplace customers have successfully re-enrolled in a new plan, and about 37 percent of those Colorado Connect customers have re-enrolled.

“We understand that having to switch plans mid-year can mean major disruption to your health care access and finances. That’s why we’re reaching out to our customer base to ensure they have proper guidance and are mobilizing our network of certified Brokers and Assisters to help people stay covered,” said Connect for Health Colorado’s CEO, Kevin Patterson. “I implore Friday Health Plans customers to contact us or their certified Broker right away. We have free, expert help and guidance—you don’t have to go this alone.”

Last month, the Colorado Division of Insurance announced that it had asked the courts to move Friday Health Plans into liquidation, ending coverage for all Friday Health Plans customers on August 31, 2023.

When to Enroll

Friday Health customers have until October 31, 2023 to enroll in a new plan. However, they must sign up for a new health insurance plan by the end of August to prevent a gap in coverage.
