Open Enrollment for 2022 Insurance

Open enrollment for healthcare plans under the federal Affordable Care Act has now begun. Open enrollment for Colorado state-based health insurance is now through December 15, 2021 for coverage starting January 1, 2022. It is very important to closely review your health insurance plan before enrolling or renewing to make sure there have not been any changes and that it is the best plan for your health and financial situation.

Of important note:  Last year, a plan that included UCHealth was removed from the exchange, leaving some patients with no in-network options. Over the past year, UCHealth has worked with hundreds of individuals to receive approval from their health insurance plan to continue seeing their UCHealth and CU Medicine providers.

Individuals in most metro Denver counties will now be able to choose from two plans on the exchange for the 2022 plan year that include UCHealth and CU Medicine:

  • A new plan called Oscar Colorado Partners Choice will be available on the exchange with a start date of January 1. This plan will include UCHealth, CU Medicine, and other affiliates in-network.
  • The original Anthem Pathway plan, which was removed for 2021, is being added back to the exchange. The plan will be available during open enrollment with a start date of January 1, and will include UCHealth, CU Medicine and other affiliates in-network.

Colorado residents can visit Connect For Health Colorado for more information and click here to access Connect For Health Colorado’s plan finder tool directly; Residents of other states should visit HealthCare.gov to get started.
