The simple truth: The costs of being uninsured are too high. One accidental misstep, ill-advised stunt or circumstance that’s out of your control can send your healthcare costs spiraling and launch you into serious debt.

The good news is that recent changes in healthcare have made getting health coverage more affordable. If you’re between the ages of 18 and 29, you may also be eligible to purchase a Colorado Young Adult, or CYA, plan available on Connect for Health Colorado. These CYA plans, also known as catastrophic plans, are designed for young people who are in good health. Because they’re intended to protect you from high cost medical emergencies, they cost you less in monthly premiums.

You may also qualify for help paying for your insurance, which may help you significantly lower costs. Find out if you qualify.

Learn more about new health insurance options at COHealthOP.org and follow the Get Covered, Colorado! campaign with #GetCoveredCO. Don’t forget: to be covered by January 1, you need to sign up for health insurance by December 23.

Unfortunately those of us who are over 30 are no longer able to purchase a catastrophic plan even if it is ideal for our circumstances.

The fact is this plan is not good for most young people because it pays nothing towards what young people normally use insurance for. Everything is out of pocket unless something catastrophic happens, hence the name. Generally people over thirty are making more money, have enough saved to cover a big deductible and are better suited for this plan but they can't have it. Young people will pay the premiums for coverage they will probably never benefit from AND pay for all of their healthcare costs out of their meager pay. It's no wonder they aren't signing up. If they have to pay out of pocket to see a doctor anyway they're going to spend the rest of their pay on rent, food and transportation rather than insurance.
