Southern Colorado Connections

To Our Valued Stakeholders,

We are officially one week from the beginning of the seventh Open Enrollment period. The excitement around the office is building! We’ve started our marketing efforts and have already heard that people are using our Quick Cost & Plan Finder Tool to compare plans and prices.

Even though I thought my own South by Southwest tour was over, I was able to make one more stop in Pueblo before Open Enrollment begins. I enjoyed spending time with friends from southeastern Colorado at the annual Action 22 meeting last week. As we aim to improve coverage in rural Colorado through advocacy, it was a pleasure to connect with so many community leaders and remind them of our network of brokers, enrollment centers and health coverage guides to serve their needs this Open Enrollment. We discussed the impact of the lower rates for southeast Colorado, and the importance of shopping in order to see savings.

I’ll keep you updated as our enrollment period begins and want to thank you in advance for helping us get the word out that we are open for business for 2020 plans next Friday!
