The South Metro Metro SBDC has been chosen as an assistance site for Connect for Health Colorado™, the new online marketplace where individuals and small employers in Colorado can shop, compare, and purchase health insurance plans, and apply for financial help to reduce costs.
Certified Health Coverage Guide Jean Barker is available to meet with small business owners one-on-one for free assistance to help you navigate the new marketplace.
Small businesses and non-profit organizations with 2-50 full-time employees can use the marketplace to provide their employees with quality health insurance. You will be able to choose with confidence from a broad selection of health plans offering comprehensive coverage.
- All health plans will cover, at a minimum, a package of services such as preventative and wellness care, emergency care, behavioral health services and prescription drugs
- The marketplace will provide side-by-side comparisons of health plan benefits and premiums
- Small employers will have the opportunity to offer their employees a multi-carrier, multi-plan menu of choices previously not available in the small business market
- Some small employers may qualify for a tax credit to offset up to 50 percent of the premiums paid by employers for their employees and their dependents.
