More savings for more people than ever before
Whether you are just hearing about us for the first time, or have been here in the past but didn’t qualify for help paying for health insurance at the time – it’s worth a look now. The American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides more financial help for health insurance and makes health coverage offered through Connect for Health Colorado more affordable. An individual can save an average of 52% more on their monthly premium after financial help is applied.
Coloradans who experience a Qualifying Life Change Event have a 60-day window to buy or change plans. Open Enrollment begins Nov. 1.
I filed my Colorado state tax return and checked a box to say I’m uninsured and wanted to find out if I qualify for free or low-cost health insurance. Where do I find that information?
If you checked that box, visit our Tax Time Enrollment page to learn about the next steps. We will guide you through the process to find out if you qualify for free or low-cost health insurance.

Why get health insurance?
Health insurance helps pay for your health care when you need it most and protects you from financial debt. We’ll help you get lower monthly costs so you can know you’ve got a plan to back you up.
What do I need to apply?
- Names and dates of birth for each person in your household.
- Mailing address. If someone in your household – those you include on your tax return – has a different home address, you’ll need that, too.
- Social Security numbers. Enter the Social Security number of anyone who is applying for coverage. If you leave this blank, you may be asked to provide more information at a later time.
- Immigration document information. Non-citizens who apply for coverage may be asked to provide information from immigration documents.
- How you file your taxes. You may be asked about your filing status and who you claim as a dependent on your taxes.
- Income sources. If you apply for savings, you will enter employer and income information for everyone in your household.
It’s important to know that all health and dental insurance plans through Connect for Health Colorado include free preventive services (called essential health benefits) and coverage for preexisting conditions.
Life change events
You can enroll now if you have just experienced a life change event such as losing job-based coverage, losing coverage through Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid program), getting married or having a baby.
Dental and vision insurance
Protecting your eyes and teeth are important parts of overall health. Like medical plans, dental and vision plans help you pay for services and preventive care. You can sign up for a dental plan during the Open Enrollment Period, which runs Nov. 1 through Jan. 15.
