Connect for Health Colorado (often referred to as the Colorado Exchange) is where insurers list the plans they have available for individuals based on zip code. While using these resources for REALTORS® in Colorado will not get you access to new or additional plans, it will provide a structured way of comparing them and the assistance, if needed, of a Colorado licensed professional. These resources are provided for Colorado REALTORS® and association affiliates free of charge.

Creating new AHPs was recently made possible at the federal level, and there are several steps to make this a reality within each state. Some states have made this possible, while others, including Colorado, have not yet completed this process. Another requirement will be for the insurers to build and offer these new plans, of course. If/when Colorado makes this available, it will be one of our top priorities to work with carriers to bring something of value to the table for REALTORS®.
It may be worth noting that in states where AHPs are available, the discounts on the insurance plans are not extreme; however, when health insurance premiums are as high as they are, even modest discounts matter. Please stay in touch with us, your local association, and CAR for developments in this area. We hope this will become a reality in Colorado soon!
