Statement by Connect for Health Colorado’s Chief Executive Officer
DENVER — Today, the Colorado Division of Insurance announced that Friday Health Plans will not accept new health plan enrollments in Colorado starting Tuesday, May 9. People who are already enrolled in Friday Heath Plans will stay enrolled in their plan and can continue to use their coverage.
Chief Executive Officer of Connect for Health Colorado, Kevin Patterson, released the following statement:
“I want to assure Friday Health Plans customers who are enrolled through Connect for Health Colorado or Colorado Connect that their coverage remains in place. This news only affects new customers, who will not have Friday Health Plans as an option when they are shopping for 2023 coverage.
We’re working closely with the Division of Insurance as they continue to evaluate Friday Health Plans’ situation in Colorado so we can provide the best guidance possible to current customers and our network of Brokers and Assisters.
In light of this announcement, I remain confident in the stability of our marketplace, and we’re at the ready to assist customers who may have concerns or need help.”
