Kaiser Permanente no longer offering plans in Eagle and Summit counties.
Health insurance options on the healthcare marketplace have gone through many changes over the past few years. In Colorado, one of the most affected areas by all this transition has been Eagle and Summit counties.
On June 14, 2019, the health care marketplace for Colorado posted:
“Kaiser Permanente Colorado, who began serving residents of Eagle and Summit counties four years ago, has announced that they will no longer offer plans in those areas in 2020…
Kaiser will close their Frisco and Edwards medical offices by Dec. 27, 2019… “
Many residents of these counties have experienced change after change and have had to switch from plan to plan each year because of the frequent changes to plans and insurance providers.
While frustration over the seemingly endless change in plans is easy to acquire, many people who have been affected, are looking into other options that have shown more stability. Private Insurance, healthcare sharing ministries, MEC plans, are all options that provide alternative means of coverage/provisions.
Anyone who lives in Eagle or Summit counties and finds themselves losing their insurance due to the above reason (or any other reason out of their control), should contact a health insurance professional immediately to discover their options moving forward.
