Have you signed up for health insurance but? Friday is the deadline – The Denver Post

Colorado’s health insurance exchange, where people shop to buy health plans on their own, is on pace for record enrollment.

Through Monday, more than 158,000 people have selected a plan on Connect for Health Colorado. That is 2 percent above last year’s figures at the same time, according to the exchange. And it puts the exchange in position possibly to break last year’s all-time high of nearly 176,000 plan selections.

Friday is the deadline to sign up for a plan on Connect for Health Colorado or through an independent broker in order to have coverage in 2018. For people whose incomes are low enough to qualify for federal government tax credits that help cover the costs of premiums, only plans bought on Connect for Health Colorado are eligible for the credits.

After Friday, people must wait until next fall to buy a plan on Connect for Health Colorado, unless they experience a life-changing event such as losing a job or getting married or divorced.
