Tax Time Enrollment       

Even though Open Enrollment has ended for most Coloradans, there are a few opportunities to still get health coverage for the year. If someone has a qualifying life event, they may be eligible for a special enrollment period. And, there are also a few other ways.

The Tax Time Enrollment Period gives uninsured Coloradans another chance to see if they can get coverage either through the Marketplace or through Health First Colorado by checking a box on their tax return before April 18.

Or, if someone was covered through Bright Health or Oscar in 2022 and has not picked another plan yet, they have a Special Enrollment Period through March 1. Our network of enrollment Assisters and Brokers can help.

We encourage every eligible to reach out and get enrolled. Thanks for ensuring that everyone has peace of mind of having health coverage in place for the year.

New Chief Product Officer

I’m delighted to announce a recent promotion to the executive leadership level at Connect for Health Colorado. Kelly Davies has been named Chief Product Officer. Davies has held a variety of roles within Connect for Health Colorado since joining the organization as a project and product manager in February 2015. Most recently, as Director of Product Development, Davies helped lead several critical modernization initiatives such as redesigning the customer-facing application, building new plan shopping decision support tools and upgrading the customer relationship management tool.

Technology Award Nomination

We were recently nominated for Project of the Year for the 22nd Annual APEX Awards. Although we didn’t win the award, it was an honor to share time celebrating the nomination with members of the teams making the Colorado Connect platform successful. I enjoyed connecting with an impressive group of leaders and innovators shining a spotlight on Colorado technology at the event this week.

Take care,

Kevin Patterson, MURP, MPA
Chief Executive Officer
