More than a quarter million Coloradans sign up for health care coverage

On March 31, the open-enrollment period ended in Colorado with a last-minute surge of sign-ups for health coverage.  Between Oct. 1, 2013, and March 31, 2014, over 277,000 Coloradans signed up or were approved for health coverage – including 118,628 Coloradans who purchased commercial health insurance through Connect for Health Colorado and 158,521 who enrolled in Medicaid, according to new data from Connect for Health Colorado and the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing. These metrics are preliminary and don’t reflect the complete picture of activity for this open enrollment period. Enrollments are expected to continue to climb in the next several weeks as Coloradans who started their applications prior to the March 31 deadline complete the process.
Although the open enrollment period ended March 31st, Connect for Health Colorado staff will continue working with any customer unable to complete their enrollment by the deadline.  From April 1, Coloradans will not be able to get commercial health insurance, unless they have a qualifying life event, until 2015. Enrollment for Medicaid and Child Health Plan Plus is year-round.
