3700 in Colo. picked exchange plans in October
DENVER — New data from the federal government show that more than 3,700 people have gotten private insurance through Colorado’s health insurance exchange.
A report released Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shows that Colorado has received more than 20,000 applications for insurance, covering more than 45,000 people. That’s through Nov. 2.
The highly-anticipated enrollment figures Wednesday also included the healthcare.gov website that has been plagued with problems and glitches since open enrollment began Oct. 1. States with their own exchanges, such as Colorado, have generally had better results than states using the federally run exchange.
Colorado’s exchange is called Connect for Health. It has a goal of 136,000 purchasers by the end of March.
