Strong Finish to the Open Enrollment Period

Monday, January 15 is the enrollment deadline

The annual Open Enrollment Period can feel like a race toward our deadlines, the last of which is upon us this Monday, January 15. Following the national trend, this enrollment period has been one for the books here in Colorado. We announced last week that, so far, more than 222,000 people have signed up for a health insurance plan, a new record for our Marketplace.

But as I reflect on the nature of our work—our commitment to Coloradans from all backgrounds, the years-long investments to maximize the customer experience, how we’ve continued to break our own enrollment records year over year— I really see it as a marathon. While Open Enrollment ends in just a few days, our work for the year to support our new and returning customers is just beginning.

I want to express my deepest gratitude to our network of community partners and enrollment partners. Many of you have put in countless hours to help people get the affordable, quality health coverage that they need and make this Open Enrollment a success.

Thank you for helping to remind people in your networks of the coming deadline, and all the resources and help we have available.


Please note that Connect for Health Colorado’s Customer Service Center will be closed on Monday, January 15 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Customers can still complete their enrollments online or with the assistance of a certified Broker or Assister.

Take care,
