Support the Colorado Affordable Health Care Option!
Whether it’s contacting your legislators, volunteering, sharing your story, or sharing this information with others, we need your help to make the Colorado Affordable Health Care Option a reality!
It’s time for us to create the Colorado Affordable Health Care Option (a.k.a. the Colorado Option) and leverage the state infrastructure to bring more affordable coverage to consumers and hold hospitals and insurers more accountable to Coloradans.
The Colorado Option will:
- Lower individual insurance premiums up to 20%
- Create competition and provide choice in the 22 counties with only one insurer
- Make insurers spend more of premiums on actual care
- Set fair hospital costs while protecting rural and critical access hospitals, and
- Help more Coloradans afford the coverage they need.
Here are ways to get involved:
Tell your legislators to support the Colorado Affordable Health Care Option and help Coloradans!
Colorado needs additional funding for Medicaid to respond to the COVID-19 public health crisis and meet the health needs of families and children as our economy suffers.
Take action and tell your state legislators to pass the Fair Tax Act to close tax loopholes for the wealthiest and avoid crippling cuts to basic services like education and health care.
Tell your legislators to create the Health Insurance Affordability Act! Help the 250,000 Coloradans buying insurance for themselves/their families or the thousands who have attempted to buy but found themselves priced out and locked out.
Volunteer to phone bank with CCHI to pass the Colorado Affordable Health Care Option (aka public/state option)! No experience is necessary—we will train you and provide you with all the information needed.
Join us in the fight against skyrocketing prescription drug prices in Colorado! Drugs don’t work if people can’t afford them, and no Coloradan should have to choose between paying for basic necessities and taking the medications that will improve their health.
This spring, Colorado legislators created new and robust protections to stop surprise out-of-network medical bills and their egregious charges. Unfortunately, the new protections, which go into effect January 1, 2020, cannot protect ALL Coloradans. The new protections cannot apply to Coloradans who are insured through federally regulated health insurance plans. Only Congressional action can ensure all Coloradans share the same protections from surprise medical bills and their disastrous consequences.
