Insurance exchange to offer services Oct. 1
With the clock ticking down to when Connect for Health Colorado opens its health insurance exchange to individuals and small businesses, representatives are hurriedly trying to get information out about the program.
But only about 12 local and regional business owners showed up for a seminar Wednesday at the Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce that focused on statewide services available through CHC.
Patti Meyer, small business marketplace coordinator for CHC and Dave Golenda, a local insurance agent, provided information about the state-created exchange to increase access and choice for health care coverage for individuals and small businesses as required by the federal health care act.
CHC will roll out services beginning Oct. 1 for benefits that will be available Jan. 1.
