Friday Health Plans Ending Coverage for All Colorado Customers  

This week, the Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI) announced that they have asked the courts to move Friday Health Plans of Colorado into liquidation, which will end coverage for Friday Health Plans customers on August 31, 2023. 

As of the announcement Monday night, all Friday Health Plans customers can use a Special Enrollment Period to choose new coverage for the remainder of the year. We have been working closely with the DOI and jointly created this list of Frequently Asked Questions for Friday Health Plans customers. We ask that if you know of a Friday Health Plans customer, point them in the direction of a broker or enrollment center to pick a new plan.

This news of course is unnerving for Connect for Health Colorado customers, as well as our new Colorado Connect customers. I issued a statement reiterating that I am confident we have the enrollment support in place to help these customers enroll with another issuer partner to ensure they don’t experience a gap in coverage. We are also reaching out to everyone enrolled through the Marketplace in a Friday Health Plan to make sure they understand what they need to do.

Thank you to all our staff, enrollment network and to you for helping us get the word out about this so we keep Coloradans covered.

Initial Rates for Plan Year 2024 Released

The Colorado Division of Insurance released initial rates for the 2024 Plan Year. We will continue to monitor and prepare the final rates to be released in October before the Open Enrollment Period.

Take care,
