Visiting with our Assistance Network

To Our Valued Stakeholders,

Happy Summer Solstice! It’s been a busy few weeks for Connect for Health Colorado staff, who have been criss-crossing the state meeting with close partners and business owners to see how we can continue to meet the needs of Coloradans in order to increase access, affordability and choice for purchasing health insurance. From Steamboat and Glenwood Springs, to Pueblo, Alamosa and Trinidad, we are visiting with our Assistance Network. It’s encouraging to hear both their successes and challenges from the most recent Open Enrollment as well as their goals for the coming year.

I also recently attended the second stakeholder meeting for House Bill 1004 (Proposal for Affordable Health Coverage Option), and there is now a website set up where you can find presentations and recordings from meetings.

In the News

I spoke with Paul Demko from Politico (scroll to Regulations section) about the potential effects of new HRA rule. You can also read more about it at Brookings.

Take care,

Kevin Patterson, MURP, MPA
