Health Insurance Open Enrollment Period is November 1, 2017 – January 12, 2018 !

After much debate, the Affordable Care Act remains the law of the land. As such, Connect for Health Colorado, continues to serve as the go-to resource for Coloradans to purchase health insurance and get financial help to reduce costs.

This is THE time to enroll in health insurance for 2018, unless you have a qualifying Life Change Event like getting married.

Coloradans can apply for Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) throughout the year. The Center for African American Health continues in its role as a Certified Network Assistance Site and partners with Connect for Health Colorado to engage and educate the community by providing current Affordable Care Act information and enrollment appointments.
