You Still Have Time Colorado: Where To Get Health Insurance
Monday, March 31 at midnight is the last chance for most people without insurance to sign up for health coverage for the rest of 2014 under the Affordable Care Act.
Ben Davis is a spokesperson for the state’s exchange, Connect for Health Colorado. He says people can finish enrolling for health care after the deadline.
“Any customer who has not been able to complete their enrollment by March 31 will be able to work with connect for health Colorado staff to complete their enrollment after the deadline,” he said.
Davis says Connect for Health Colorado’s website, call center and walk-in sites have increased staff and extended their hours to meet demand.
1-855-PLANS-4-YOU (855-752-6749) Customer Service Center extended hours:
- Saturday, March 29 from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
- Sunday, March 30 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
- Monday, March 31 from 7:00 a.m. to midnight
Those who do not have health insurance will pay a maximum penalty of either $95 or 1 percent of their taxable income for 2014.
“The average wait time at our call center has been about 10 minutes. We have a couple walk in sites throughout the front range that have been incredibly busy, with lines out the door in some cases,” Davis said.
