Special Enrollment Periods Enable Coloradans to Get Covered

As we move toward spring, we have continued enrolling Coloradans in earnest after the traditional Jan. 15 end of enrollment. Of course, Coloradans with special circumstances can enroll year-round, but this year we have a few new opportunities to get even more people covered.

As a reminder, we formally launched a special enrollment period in the making since the 2020 legislative session – Tax Time Enrollment, which allows Coloradans to check a box on their state tax return that they are uninsured and interested in finding out if they qualify for free or low-cost health coverage. In addition, we are currently open just through Wednesday, March 16 for those who need coverage through our Disaster Relief Special Enrollment Period.

To make it easier to see all the ways Coloradans can enroll, we’ve updated our website and also have a toolkit with resources to help us get the word out about the Tax Time opportunity.

We know sometimes people want help through the process, so our network of Brokers and Assisters are ready to help.
