How is health care changing in Colorado?
Starting January 1, 2014, there is a legal requirement for everyone to have health insurance. Even those who are currently insured will have new options available to them and should be prepared for their current plan to change. Colorado’s health insurance exchange (marketplace), called Connect for Health Colorado is a government-run entity opening in October where individuals, families and businesses with fewer than 100 employees can shop for health care plans. Health insurance exchanges are part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) that President Obama signed the into law on March 23rd, 2010 and upheld by the US Supreme Court ruling on June 28th, 2012. The Affordable Care Act is also know as “Obamacare” or “ACA”.
