RBC I Connect for Health Colorado™ is a new online marketplace where individuals, families and small businesses in Colorado can shop, compare, pick and purchase health insurance plans and get exclusive access to new up-front financial assistance, based on income, to reduce costs.
Customers will shop through a website and get expert help in person and over the phone from a network of customer service professionals, including Customer Service Center Representatives, Health Coverage Guides and certified health insurance agents and brokers.
Nearly 500,000 Coloradans will be eligible for a new kind of tax credit to lower the cost of health insurance, only through Connect for Health Colorado.
If you are an individual earning between about $15,000 and $46,000 a year, a couple earning between about $20,500 and $62,000 a year or a family of four earning between about $31,000 and $94,000 a year, you may qualify for a break on your monthly premiums. You may also be eligible for health plans with lower co-pays and deductibles. Coloradans will be able to choose from a broad range of health plans, all offering comprehensive coverage, so you can shop with confidence.
All health plans will cover, at a minimum, a package of services such as preventive and wellness care, emergency care, behavioral health services and prescription drugs.
Insurance plans include free preventive services, such as diabetes and cholesterol screenings and annual exams.
Open enrollment is from Oct. 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014. Coverage begins as early as Jan. 1 2014 if you purchase insurance by Dec. 15, 2013. The Marketplace is a non-profit entity established by a 2011 state law. More information is available at www.ConnectforHealthCO.com and 1-855-PLANS4YOU (855-752-6749).
