OmniSalud Financial Help Spots Claimed for 2024

Denver— Connect for Health Colorado, the state’s official health insurance marketplace, has announced that the maximum number of individuals (11,000) have submitted a Colorado Connect application for 2024 and been found eligible for SilverEnhanced Savings, the financial help for enrollees in the OmniSalud program.

Kevin Patterson, CEO of Connect for Health Colorado, released the following statement:

“We anticipated that we would see significant financial help determinations early in the enrollment period for OmniSalud; the response we saw yesterday and today has exceeded even our very high expectations. I’m truly grateful for and astounded by the response.

We understand people will be disappointed to learn the funding limit has already been reached, and we hope to continue to find ways to expand the program in the future to meet the demand. I want to express my gratitude for the additional spots made available this year as well as the extraordinary work from our enrollment network and community partners.

While the financial help spots have been claimed, we do encourage people who are interested in the OmniSalud program to continue to apply. They will still be able to enroll in plans at regular cost, and we want to be sure to capture the ongoing interest in the program. If you missed out on the financial help, I recommend consulting with one of our enrollment experts. Our Brokers and Assisters are very knowledgeable about health care and coverage options and are here to help.”

The OmniSalud program provides undocumented Coloradans with a safe way to compare affordable health insurance plans, get financial help if eligible, and enroll securely. The OmniSalud program is available on Colorado Connect, Connect for Health Colorado’s public benefit corporation and online enrollment platform.

Last month, the Colorado Division of Insurance announced that for 2024, it would increase the availability of financial assistance for health insurance in the OmniSalud program to 11,000 individuals, a 10 percent increase from 10,000 individuals in 2023.

Last year, Connect for Health Colorado reported that it met the funding limit for SilverEnhanced Savings by December 6, 2022.

The Open Enrollment Period runs through January 15, 2024.
