GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Coloradans seeking health insurance through Connect for Health Colorado can now access more savings as a result of the American Rescue Plan (also known as the “Covid Relief Package”). For the first time ever, Colorado individuals and families of all income ranges can qualify for reduced premiums. The deadline for enrolling for insurance has been extended through August 15, 2021 to ensure everyone has the opportunity to take advantage of these savings.
The American Rescue Plan changes are sweeping and available to anyone not currently covered for health insurance including the following:
People who were making too much money before may now qualify for financial help to reduce premiums – even if they were denied in the past.
Anyone who has received unemployment benefits for at least one week in 2021 may qualify for a free Silver Plan, or credit toward the plan of your choice.
Monthly premiums starting from $0 and copays from $2.
