The Colorado Option
We worked hard to pass the Colorado Option, and now we’re working to ensure communities are aware of plans and financial assistance available to them. The Colorado Option plans are the first health care plans available to every Coloradan who buys insurance on the individual marketplace (not an employer), regardless of documentation status. Below you will find webinars, social media toolkits and resources, and resources for immigrant families.
