More Than 20000 Enroll For Health Coverage In Nov.

Connect for Health Colorado

Officials with Connect for Health Colorado say more than 22,000 people enrolled for health coverage last month.

Open enrollment for the state’s insurance exchange began on Nov. 15.  

During the first two-week enrollment period 9,719 people signed up for private coverage, 12,533 enrolled for Medicaid, and 172 signed up for the state's Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), according to state data. 

“Last year I guess we could say we had middle-aged people show quite a bit of interest in looking at a policy," says Maria Forster, a health coverage guide in Delta County, "but this year we have a lot of younger people seeking out policies.”  

Forster says the open enrollment period ends Feb. 15, but if you want health insurance starting in 2015 you need to select a plan by Dec. 15.
