2024 Modern Sponsors

Our mission is to increase access, affordability, and choice for individuals and small employers purchasing health insurance in Colorado.

In 2010, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was created to help expand healthcare coverage and decrease healthcare costs for Americans. When the ACA passed, we had already been studying and building a health insurance marketplace for Colorado residents with that same mission for four years as the Blue Ribbon Commission for Healthcare Reform.

Then, in 2011, Connect for Health Colorado was established by the Colorado General Assembly as a public, non-profit entity to create a health insurance marketplace. It opened for business on Oct. 1, 2013, for individuals, families and small employers across Colorado to purchase health insurance and get financial help to reduce costs.

Connect for Health Colorado is governed by a Board of Directors with additional direction from a committee of state legislators (the “Oversight Committee”).

Rural Family Physicians is a physician owned group with the goal to make rural hospitalist medicine sustainable for both physicians and hospitals. The physician works a 5 on, 10 off model, and is able to take call off-site from the hospital overnight, allowing them to recharge. Also, they are paid 30% more than the average locums company. This will attract high quality physicians, and allow them to practice sustainably to avoid burnout. RFP charges hospitals less than locums staffing companies, making this practice model a long term solution to rural staffing shortages.
