We announced last week that more than 212,000 Coloradans enrolled in a health insurance plan during our Open Enrollment Period. I’m deeply proud that so many Coloradans can have the peace of mind of having health coverage for the year.
While most of the Open Enrollment Period ran smoothly, we have uncovered some errors with the electronic data interchange with our issuer partners that affected both Connect for Health Colorado and the new Colorado Connect customers. We take system and customer service issues very seriously and understand our responsibilities to correct these issues promptly. Our staff has been working around the clock to ensure that these issues are corrected and customers have everything they need to use their coverage.
Thank you to all of you — our stakeholders, policymakers, advocates, media partners, community organizations, Brokers, Assisters — for all the work you did to help us get the word out and get Coloradans enrolled. We know it takes a village.
Bright and Oscar customers have more time
Even though Open Enrollment has ended for most Coloradans, if someone was covered through Bright Health or Oscar in 2022 and has not picked another plan yet, those customers have a Special Enrollment Period through March 1. We don’t want those customers to go without insurance this year, so we encourage them to reach out and get enrolled. Our network of enrollment Assisters and Brokers can help.
