Health insurance enrollment deadline extended

Hilltop Health Access will continue to offer information and assistance to uninsured people under a health insurance enrollment period that’s been extended to May 15.

A certified assistance site for Connect for Health, Hilltop Health Access offers help with navigating the online enrollment process — from comparing coverage options to determining if tax credits are available based on income to enrolling for coverage.

Depending on their income, people could qualify for tax credits that could save them thousands of dollars on health insurance premiums over the course of a year. 

Last year, thousands of Colorado residents didn’t take advantage of tax credits that could have reduced the cost of their insurance.
