Managers of Colorado’s public health insurance exchange are getting ready to prepare agents and brokers for the next individual major medical open enrollment period, in spite of uncertainty about how that market will work.
One early sign of how stable the exchange will come when managers see how many agents and brokers are getting recertified, and how many are getting certified for the first time.
The standard open enrollment period for 2018 is now scheduled to start Nov. 1 and run through Dec. 15.
The Affordable Care Act public exchange system came to life in October 2013, with the first coverage sold taking effect in January 2014.
For the fourth annual period, for 2017 coverage, Connect for Health Colorado trained 883 returning producers and 134 new producers.
