Don't forget health insurance for 2022
If you don’t have health insurance coverage for the new year, your time is almost up! Open Enrollment to purchase a plan through Connect for Health Colorado, the state’s private marketplace, ends January 15. If you sign up now through January 15, 2022, your coverage will begin on February 1, 2022.
Not sure where to start? Larimer Health Connect’s Health Coverage Guides can answer your questions and help you enroll in financial discounts. Free in-person and virtual (online or by phone) appointments are available and can be scheduled at larimerhealthconnect.org or by calling 970-472-0444. Nosotros Hablamos Español!
It’s important to note that if you purchased health insurance coverage for the 2021 calendar year that coverage ended on December 31, 2021 (unless it renewed). Enroll in a plan for 2022 by January 15 either on connectforhealthco.com or by calling Larimer Health Connect for help.
“Now that the holidays are over, it’s the perfect time to find the health insurance plan that fits your needs and budget,” says Rosie Duran, Larimer Health Connect coordinator. “We’re here to help so you can begin 2022 with peace of mind.”
New savings are available for the 2022 plan year and financial discounts are available ONLY through the Connect for Health Colorado Marketplace.
Once Open Enrollment ends, you can still enroll in a health insurance plan within 60 days of a qualifying Life Change Event which includes, but is not limited to, marriage, birth, divorce, adoption or foster care placement, moving to Colorado, a change in household income, or lost health insurance. Such an event entitles you to a limited Special Enrollment period. (For more information, see connectforhealthco.com.)
There are no deadlines for enrolling in Medicaid or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+)—that can be done whenever you or a family member qualifies. Larimer Health Connect is available throughout the year to help with enrollment for Medicaid and CHP+ and to answer any questions about health insurance, all at no cost.
