More than 156,000 Coloradans selected health care coverage for 2019 through the state health insurance Marketplace through Dec. 15, a rate 5 percent ahead of signups one year ago, according to new data released today by Connect for Health Colorado®.

Seventeen percent of the medical plan selections are by customers who are new to Connect for Health Colorado and 83 percent are renewing customers.

"I am happy with the pace of sign-ups for health insurance plans that take effect Jan. 1," said Connect for Health Colorado CEO Kevin Patterson. "But we are still enrolling Coloradans who buy their own health insurance. For anyone who does not yet have coverage in place, it's time to go to our site and pick your coverage for next year."

While many states have concluded their open enrollment periods, open enrollment in Colorado runs to Jan. 15, for insurance that will take effect Feb. 1.

"As a state-based health insurance marketplace, we are able to adjust our operations to best meet the needs of the residents of our state," Patterson said. "This year, that has meant introducing a streamlined process for obtaining financial help, improving our online tool for choosing a health plan and extending the enrollment period beyond the holidays."
