Need health insurance? Colorado Market Listings End Sunday – Boulder Daily Camera
If you are uninsured and want to change that before the end of 2021, time is running out to buy health insurance in the state run market.
The special open registration period, extended due to the pandemic, ends on Sunday. Most people who miss the deadline will have to wait until at least November 1, when the state and federal health insurance markets start selling plans for 2022 (there are exceptions for people who have a change. life, such as getting married, having a baby, or losing a job).
Connect for Health Colorado, which operates the state’s market under the Affordable Care Act, reports that about three-quarters of clients have a plan option with a monthly cost of $ 25 or less, in part in because of a federal stimulus bill that extended subsidies to households with higher incomes.
People who have been unemployed at any time this year may also be eligible for plans without premiums. However, the plan with the lowest monthly premiums is not always the best option, as it may result in higher out-of-pocket expenses if you get sick.
Around 212,000 people have purchased insurance in the market, the highest total since it opened in 2013.
