Connect for Health Colorado has published the preliminary filings to the Colorado Division of Insurance showing that 10 carriers requested approval to provide about 150 health plans for individuals and families through Connect for Health Colorado. They include:
All Savers Insurance Company (part of UnitedHealthcare)
Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield
New Health Ventures
Rocky Mountain Health Plans
Additionally, six carriers – Anthem, Colorado Choice, Colorado HealthOP, Kaiser Permanente, Rocky Mountain Health Plans and See Change – requested approval to provide nearly 100 health plans to small employers through our marketplace. The health plans are new and include a comprehensive set of Essential Health Benefits, including doctor visits, hospitalizations, maternity care, emergency room care, and prescriptions.
This is the beginning of a review process by the Division of Insurance, which regulates insurance companies in the state. Final details about the types and number of health plans and about premiums will be known in August, after the Division of Insurance completes its review process. Actual health plan costs should be available soon.
Because everyone likes to have options, they will provide Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) and Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans. We also will offer Health Savings Account (HSA) plans, Colorado Young Adult Plans that provide minimum coverage for those under the age of 30, and dental plans.
