My husband and I found a bargain for health insurance through Connect for Health Colorado! Before Obamacare we were paying $600/month for a lousy insurance policy. Not only would the plan not cover a neck surgery I needed, but I couldn’t go to the doctor for regular check-ups because the co-payments were too high. With my new insurance plan, I have already gone to the doctor and am receiving treatment for my neck.
Lorenzo Ramirez is a health care advocate living in Denver. He is excited about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and knows it's benefits were worth the fight! Before the ACA Lorenzo was uninsured; now he is paying $170 a month for a comprehensive plan so he can get the care he needs when he needs it!

President Obama made clear in the State of the Union yesterday that immigration reform was at the top of his priority list; he demanded we “fix our broken immigration system.” Immigration reform is a constant topic of deliberation, but immigration will likely be brought to the forefront of debate again this year.
I’m one of the many young adults who was uninsured and underinsured in the past due to affordability. Once I aged out of my parents’ insurance, I was still covered for a few months by my university insurance. When I graduated, I bought a catastrophic plan, but it was $100/month, and I never used it.
Health Insurance is not new to me- but it can still be complicated. I’m a healthy 62 year old retired sales man whose been paying for an overpriced health insurance plan for about 7 years- as I’m sure many others have been as well. But having insurance is the responsible thing to do. As the media has said over and over again- you’re not invincible and you never know what could happen.
Recently, we posted a blog about the importance of looking at the total cost of coverage – not just the premium - when selecting a health plan. As the deadline to enroll for coverage by Dec. 23rd for coverage that begins January 1st is fast approaching, today’s blog looks at another important factor when shopping for insurance – is your provider in the plan’s network? And what exactly is meant by network?
My husband and I live in Salida, CO and have now been without insurance for two and a half years. We have been going to a clinic where you pay what you can afford- Thank goodness this has kept us away from emergency rooms and unpredictable medical bills.
