Technical Updates to Our System Complete

To Our Valued Stakeholders,

It is getting to be that time of year when the Connect for Health Colorado staff are diving in to preparations for this coming Open Enrollment. Lots more to come on that shortly.

We recently completed a long running technology project referred to as our “legacy replacement project.”  This project replaced legacy code from the early days of our Marketplace with new, custom Connect for Health Colorado intellectual property. 

This effort spanned more than four years and provides several key benefits to us including:

  • A more flexible and scalable technology platform which allows us to react to change
  • An application that is more customer- friendly and offers more opportunities for self-service through our updated, customer-centric design
  • Consolidated data management and system integrations allowing for better data integrity and issuer communication.

While we continue to stabilize our new system, I am proud of the results we have achieved as a culmination of this multi-year effort and am excited to explore the new flexibility we will have to improve our platform.

In the News

On Tuesday, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law. I made a statement  thanking our lawmakers and President Biden for passing this important bill and expressing my gratitude for the additional savings it allows our customers for the next few years. The Telluride Daily Planet shared a good story about how the Inflation Reduction Act will help customers.

Take care,
