Colorado far behind health insurance goal

Published On: Nov 25 2013 10:49:35 AM CST

Colorado is dramatically behind its goals for getting people to sign up for health insurance under the new health care law.

The Denver Post reports Monday that enrollment through Colorado's state-run exchange is barely half the state's worst-case projection.
The online shopping site announced last week that it had signed up 6,001 Coloradans so far. Exchange board members had projected a lowest-level mid-November enrollment of 11,108.
The exchange needs 136,300 enrollees in 2014 to raise $6.5 million of its $51.4 million expenses.
Emails obtained by the newspaper under open-records laws show board members are concerned the shortfall. Board members are also worried about a possible logjam at the Dec. 15 deadline for buying coverage that would start at the beginning of next year.
