Connect for Health Colorado is preparing to open for business in October of 2013.

OnSight’s work with Connect for Health Colorado continues as the insurance marketplace prepares to open in October of this year. Last week Colorado’s Department of Insurance announced that eleven insurance carriers will participate in the state health marketplace. More health care options for Coloradans is a great thing, and we’re excited to to help Connect for Health as they get ready to launch.

Through Connect for Health Colorado, consumers will be able to choose from many health insurance carriers at competitive rates. Prices may be even lower for many Coloradans because of new financial assistance available only through Connect for Health Colorado.

Participating carriers include All Savers Insurance Company (part of United HealthCare), Anthem, Cigna, Colorado Choice, Colorado HealthOP, Denver Health, Humana, Kaiser Permanente, New Health Ventures and Rocky Mountain Health Plans. The health care plans are all designed to be sold only on the exchange, and include doctor visits, hospitalizations, maternity care, emergency room care, and prescriptions.

Connect for Health Colorado kicked off its public outreach campaign with TV and print ads. Groups may request a speaker from the organization to learn more about the health care marketplace, and representatives from Connect for Health Colorado will begin visiting communities around the state this summer.

Individuals and small businesses in Colorado will be able to start shopping for health care this October, and coverage will begin January 2014. Click here to learn more about Connect for Health Colorado.
