With Less Than Two Weeks To Go, More Than 100K Coloradans Have Signed Up For Private Insurance

There’s less than two weeks remaining for people who don’t have health coverage to get it. Plans won’t be available on demand after that until next fall. So far, more than 100,000 Coloradans have now signed up for new, private health insurance plans through the state’s online shopping portal. That number is less than initial goals anticipated, but still good compared with other states in general. About 15,000 Coloradans bought health plans through Connect for Health Colorado in the past two weeks. That’s the fastest pace since mid-December, when there was a surge of customers getting coverage that would start Jan. 1, 2014. Read the story in CPR news here.
