But Open Enrollment closes January 15.
DENVER - Even though 2023 has started, open enrollment for individual health insurance (meaning for people who don’t get their insurance from an employer) continues until Jan. 15. Anyone who needs health insurance and hasn’t enrolled in a plan for 2023 can enroll and get coverage that will start on February 1, 2023.
“There’s still time to get enrolled for 2023, and many people can take advantage of the financial assistance available through the Inflation Reduction Act that passed last year. In addition, Colorado Option plans are newly available this year. Along with premiums that are lower than average throughout the vast majority of the state, the Colorado Option was designed to provide high-value services at reduced out-of-pocket costs,” said Colorado Insurance Commissioner Michael Conway. “If anyone needs health insurance this year, now is the time to find a plan and sign up.”
Coloradans needing health insurance can shop and enroll through Connect for Health Colorado, the state’s health insurance marketplace. People can get free, virtual and in-person help from certified enrollment experts and at Connect’s enrollment centers located throughout the state - see their We Can Help page for more information. Many enrollment assistance sites are hosting events ahead of the January 15, 2023 deadline. People can also use Connect’s Quick Cost and Plan Finder tool to shop for plans and get an idea of any financial help they may qualify for.
