March 31, 2020
Connect for Health Colorado announced a special enrollment period (SEP) for residents of Colorado who have either lost their health insurance or who anticipate such a loss as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. The SEP runs from March 20, 2020, through April 3, 2020. This SEP is established by emergency regulation 20-E-02 issued by the Division of Insurance.
Employers with employees located in Colorado should be aware of this option in the event those employees experience a reduction in hours or express an intent to enroll in a plan on the exchange as a result of business decisions made in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The SEP is also an option for employees whose jobs are terminated and health coverage is lost during this time.
