Connect for Health Colorado, the state's online insurance marketplace, is now open and offers individuals, families and small businesses a one-stop shop to compare, pick and purchase health insurance plans, as well as access to new up-front financial assistance based on income. Open enrollment is underway at Those who purchase plans by December 15, 2013 will have coverage beginning January 1, 2014.

Eagle County, in partnership with Garfield and Pitkin counties and Mountain Family Health Centers, was one of 58 organizations in Colorado selected to provide in-person assistance to customers of Connect for Health Colorado. The entities received $750,000, one of the top five funding awards in the state, to run a local Health Assistance Network through December 31, 2014.

The network includes health coverage guides who are available to assist with evaluating health plan options, applying for insurance affordability programs and enrolling in health coverage. All health coverage guides are bilingual in English and Spanish, and are available by appointment in a variety of locations in Aspen, Basalt, Eagle, El Jebel, Glenwood Springs and Rifle.
