Special Enrollment Period on Exchange Extended

On April 3, 2020, the Commissioner adopted Emergency Regulation 20-E-06, which extends 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 extended SEP runs from April 4, 2020, through April 30, 2020 (extended from previous emergency rule deadline of April 3, 2020). This SEP was originally 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.
