More savings available to Coloradans than ever before
Update your account to access these savings
The sooner you update your account, the sooner your additional savings will be applied to your health insurance plan. Start receiving the new, additional tax credit savings on the first of the month after you submit an updated information.
You can switch to a new plan when you receive your new financial help results. But the new plan’s deductible may start over. If you choose a new insurance company, any amounts you have already paid this year will not carry over to your new plan. If you stay with the same insurance company and change plans, any out-of-pocket costs you already paid on your current 2021 plan should count towards your new deductible. Reach out to your health insurance company directly to confirm this is the case before you switch.
Frequently Asked Questions
No. You won’t start receiving the new monthly savings until you’ve confirmed or updated the information in your account. However, if you do not update your account this year, you will collect any premium tax credit due to you when you file your 2021 federal income taxes.
I have a health plan through the Connect for Health Colorado, but I never applied for financial help/I didn’t qualify for financial help. How do I apply for financial help now?
Log in to your account and update your information so that we can evaluate your situation for financial help. Applying for financial help means you’ll enter updated information about your household, including household income and income sources. If you are not eligible for affordable health coverage, like that from a job, your spouse’s job or from Health First Colorado (Medicaid), you can likely get financial help!
Tell us about life changes within 30 days. Life events that can affect your health insurance coverage include:
- Getting married or divorced
- Having a baby or adopting a child
- Moving to a different ZIP code or county
- Changes in your income
- If your yearly income estimate goes down or your household size gets bigger, you could qualify for more savings than you’re getting now. This could lower what you pay in monthly premiums.
- If your yearly income estimate goes up or your household size goes down, you may qualify for less savings than you’re getting now.
- If you don’t report the change, you could have to repay tax credits when you file your federal tax return.
