Check Your List Twice...for Health Insurance!

  • by: CCHI

("Santa Klutz?" Bob Gardner's not going to like this! – promoted by Colorado Pols)

The Colorado-based Got Insurance campaign is back with holiday themed ads to encourage Coloradans to include health insurance in their holiday shopping list. The deadline on December 23rd to enroll for coverage that begins January 1st is fast approaching. Colorado has seen enrollment numbers spike in recent weeks, but there are still many uninsured Coloradans that need to get covered.

Colorado’s marketplace, Connect for Health Colorado, makes it easier to do just that. Connect for Health Colorado allows Coloradans to compare plans with different levels of coverage and find plans that have your doctor in their network. And if you have questions, there’s a robust network of health coverage guides that can help you through the process and make sure you get financial assistance if you are eligible.

In the spirit of the holidays, Santa has teamed up with Coloradans to help make sure we all get covered to get the care we need, when we need it. Don’t be naughty and shift your health care costs to your friends and neighbors by going without insurance. Make your holiday shopping list and check it twice to make sure you get covered.

  1. Major, major complaint.  When I call in for a problem I have (I don't qualify to provide employer insurance, but that then excludes me from individual insurance for some odd reason and nobody on the chat line can tell me what to do), I've been on hold twice for over 20 mins and then, and only then do they tell that there are 44 people ahead of me in line.  OY!!!  I may just take my little number away from Connect for Health and call Cigna and Humana directly.   Right now on hold again 4 mins and no indication of how many people are ahead of me.  Wow, 5 mins in and they said only 15 calls ahead.  Progress.  I might get done before the 23rd.  Probably not, however. 

    I don't qualify for the tax break, so I'm only doing this to add the numbers.  May not be worth the amazing hassle.  Any thoughts?


    1. The "on hold" music sucks, so use the online chat feature.  You can do something else on your computer while you're waiting.  Plus, BE SURE TO ASK THE CSR FOR AN INCIDENT NUMBER.  That way you can refer to it next time you have to call in with the same problem.

      The added bonus of using the online chat is that you can print the chat log just in case you need to escalate your question to someone else.

  2. I wasn't aware that Santa is a U.S. citizen. 🙂

    These ads are slightly less offensive. But they're not helping…

    As of November 30, just 9,980 Coloradans had purchased private insurance. But that number has increased to over 15,000 since, according to Monday’s announcement.

    Another 64,290 had enrolled in the state’s Medicaid program as of November 30, putting the state’s total enrollment at 74,270 for the first two months of the exchange.

    But if current trends continue, the exchange may have an age problem.

    Demographic information released at the end of November shows the makeup of the exchange so far skews much older than federal officials have targeted.

    The White House has set a goal of ensuring that roughly 40% of all enrollees on the federal exchange are young and healthy.

    As of November 30, just 11% of total enrollees in Colorado’s exchange fall into the targeted 18 to 34 age bracket. The majority of new enrollees – more than 60% – are between 45 and 65.

    1. Santa isn't BUYING health insurance in that ad, is he?  He doesn't need to be a 'murican.  If he's selling he could be any nationality.  Maybe Chinese?  Like most goods sold at Walmart.  Would that make you happy?

    2. So, have you gone on the exchange?

      What's your stake in this? Hoping it fails? If so, any reason other than name Obamacare refers to the Kenyan Marxist extremist Muslim/anti-white christian fundamentalist President?  

      Hope it works?

      If you're on your parents' plan, have they been on the exchange?

      Are you just going to use the emergency room, as so many "conservatives" are, when you get sick or break a thumb? If so, I'm payin' yer tab, skeezix.

      Oh, were I a mouse in the wall.

  3. A total of 2 hours on hold (3 different times) and I, a recent cancer survivor, am insured!!!!  Worth all the hassle.

    By January 1, 2014, for the first time since 2005, all of the employees of my tiny little business will also be insured.

    Obama, Obama, Obama!!!!  (Imagine me dancing with delight right now.)
