Colorado Division of Insurance Takes Action Against HealthOP

Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies - Division of Insurance LogoDENVER (Oct. 16, 2015) – Today, the Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI), part of the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), took action against the Colorado Health Insurance Cooperative, more commonly known as the Colorado HealthOP, preventing it from selling insurance for 2016 on the state’s health exchange, Connect for Health Colorado. Colorado consumers will not be able to buy new HealthOP coverage or renew existing plans for 2016, for individuals or small groups, on Connect for Health Colorado.
