Voters in Colorado voted down an initiative to reject insurance mandates in Tuesday’s elections, while Arizona and Oklahoma voted to accept similar ballot items. According to Becker’s Hospital Review, the ballot initiative aimed to give CO residents the right not to participate in any health care system without penalty and to have access to any legal medical services they can afford. With the initiative being rejected, health insurance mandates under health care reform will be enacted.
Now, you may be wondering what you will do for Colorado health insurance coverage under such a mandate. If your employer does not provide group health insurance plans, then you will have to find it on your own. A good place to start looking is with an independent insurance agent. Independent agents can search multiple carriers for rates and coverage to find you what you’re looking for within your budget.
