Health insurance in Colorado
COVID-19 special enrollment period continues until April 30, 2020
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Colorado’s exchange is allowing uninsured residents to sign up for health coverage. The enrollment window runs until April 30. Enrollments completed by April 3 will have coverage effective April 1. Enrollments completed between April 4 and April 30 will have coverage effective May 1. The special enrollment period is only available to people who don’t have minimum essential coverage, so it’s not an opportunity to switch plans. But health care sharing ministry plans and fixed indemnity plans are not considered minimum essential coverage, so people relying on those types of coverage do have an opportunity to enroll during Colorado’s COVID-19 special enrollment period.
