Record Enrollments Reported

Springtime is upon us which means we’ve had enough time to dig into our data from this year’s Open Enrollment Period. We are thrilled to share the official report, By The Numbers. In it, we provide an interactive deep dive into the overall story of the enrollment period. You’ll see our enrollment numbers overall and by county, costs for our customers, how our enrollment network helps save people money and more about our improved customer experience.  

This year, federal and state insurance subsidies boosted our enrollments. By the end of the Open Enrollment Period in January, nearly 200,000 Coloradans signed up for a 2022 plan. (Also, please note that this report doesn’t include data from our recent Special Enrollment Periods).

Tax Time Last Call!

If you know someone without health insurance, and that person hasn’t filed taxes yet, don’t forget that we have a new Special Enrollment Period opportunity called Tax Time Enrollment.  Coloradans can check a box on the state tax form to get more information about enrolling in a Marketplace plan if eligible or connecting to coverage with Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program).

Funding Opportunity for Enrollment Assistance Sites

A reminder that we are in an application cycle for new and returning organizations, including licensed Brokers, to operate Assistance Sites and Enrollment Centers across the state for our two-year funding cycle.  The application deadline for funding is April 25. Thank you for passing this on to any organization you know who might be interested.

In the News

A new federal rule proposed this week will make federal tax credit assistance available to families affected by the “family glitch”. Those affected are the family members of employees with employee sponsored insurance whose health coverage does not meet the federal threshold for affordability as a percentage of total household income. The Washington Post shares a summary.

Take care,
