Health Care Reform:

Health Insurance & Affordable Care Act

Colorado Exchange Watchdog Likes What It Sees


“Why are you putting up with this?” asked Lundberg, who called it a “perverse effect on low income people who have a job.”

“Do not put up with this,” Lundberg told exchange leaders. “I’m sure this is a federal rule. If this is a rule you guys came up with, I will scold you.”

“This might be something we want to think about drafting a letter (to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) to address,” said Sen. Irene Aguilar, the committee chairwoman who is a Democrat and a backer of the ACA.

The committee agreed to meet again to work on a letter to HHS. Members may also want federal help on the issue of the ACA’s open enrollment period.

In order to discourage people from waiting until they are sick or have an accident to buy health coverage, the ACA forbids sales of health policies, on or off of exchanges, after the annual open enrollment period, except in the case of “life events” like the loss of a job, divorce or birth of a child. Republicans and Democrats alike on the committee expressed concern for people who will miss the enrollment window and must remain uninsured for up to nine months.
