Colorado’s insurance exchange opening Tuesday

DENVER — More than two years after Colorado decided to set up a state marketplace to help people shop for health insurance and comply with new coverage mandates, the system is ready for an Oct. 1 launch.

Well, it’s mostly ready.

Colorado’s 700,000 or so people without health insurance can start shopping Tuesday on Connect For Health Colorado. That’s a website to help folks find insurance plans to meet the federal health-insurance mandate. Television ads promoting the new site describe it as a place where health insurers compete, giving consumers a new edge finding health coverage.

But the website won’t be fully operational when shopping starts Tuesday. People with incomes that qualify them for federal subsidies to help offset premiums won’t be able to complete their applications for aid online.
