Division of Insurance Approves 2016 Health Insurance Plans
DENVER (Oct. 23, 2015) – The Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI), a division of the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), has approved 1,073 health insurance plans from 20 carriers to offer health coverage to consumers and small businesses for 2016. As in past years, consumers have many plans to choose from, with a number of plan types and premiums available.
“Consumers should take the time to shop to find a plan that fits their needs,” said Commissioner of Insurance Marguerite Salazar.
Three carriers from the current year will not be offering plans in 2016, and three new carriers have entered the market for 2016.
