Outreach & Enrollment/Healthcare Reform

The 2024 Marketplace Open Enrollment Period has ended. State-Based Marketplaces (SBMs) are able to determine the length of their Open Enrollment Periods. Colorado’s State-Based Marketplace, Connect for Health Colorado, Open Enrollment has ended. There are still several opportunities to get covered. Coloradans who experience a Qualifying Life Change Event outside of Open Enrollment have a 60-day window to buy or change plans. Consumers who experience certain qualifying life events may be able to obtain Marketplace coverage outside of open enrollment through a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). People can apply for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) at any time of year.

A Special Enrollment Period has been announced for Medicaid and CHIP beneficiaries due to the unwinding of the Medicaid Continuous Enrollment Condition under the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE). Between March 31, 2023 and November 30, 2024, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services will allow Marketplace-eligible consumers to submit a new application or update an existing application through HealthCare.gov.

Health Centers are uniquely positioned to be at the forefront of helping clients to enroll in either SBMs or FFMs as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The resources and information available on these webpages are provided to assist Health Center staff with their outreach and enrollment needs and help educate Health Center patients about how to understand and utilize health insurance.
