Will anyone be allowed to buy insurance through the Colorado Health Insurance Exchange?

Not right away. The Colorado Health Exchange will initially serve individuals buying insurance for themselves and their families. Most people will continue to get their health insurance through their employers via Colorado Group Health Insurance.┬áColorado is also setting up a separate exchange for small businesses called the “Small Business Health Options Program” (SHOP).

Individuals may be eligible for subsidized premiums for insurance policies purchased through the Colorado Health Insurance Exchange. The average subsidy is expected to be $4600/person in 2014.
