You need health insurance. Not only is it smart: It’s the law.
The Affordable Care Act requires all individuals to have health insurance or pay a tax penalty. In 2016, that penalty was $695 per person ($347.50 per child under 18) or 2.5 percent of your yearly household income, whichever is greater. (There are exceptions.)
Employers generally offer insurance to full-time employees. But if you are not covered by your employer, you will need to buy your own. How?
- You can buy directly from Rocky Mountain Health Plans. Call 1-800-453-2981 to speak to a representative who can explain your options.
- You can work with a local broker (download the list) who has special expertise and experience in helping people purchase health insurance.
- You can buy coverage through the state insurance exchange, Connect for Health Colorado.
Choosing a plan
There are three major factors for choosing a health plan: cost, your own health status, and the network of providers included in the plan.
