Colorado Springs has been chosen for a new customer service center that will help Coloradans navigate a new health insurance marketplace created by the federal Affordable Care Act.
The Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance said Monday that the city was chosen from among 31 sites that were evaluated to house Connect for Health Colorado's Customer Service Center. The center is expected to employ about 100 people.
According to the Colorado Springs Gazette , the call center will serve as a hub for customer service as the state begins to implement portions of the new law, which creates an exchange for residents to purchase health insurance. Employees will provide phone assistance to help people shop for health insurance and understand tax credits.
