Division of Insurance announces timeline for review of 2019 health insurance plans

Deadline for companies to submit plans and premiums is June 15

DENVER (May 10, 2018) – The Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI), part of the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), has finalized the timeline for health insurance companies to file their plans and premiums for the individual and small group markets for the 2019 plan year. The timeline, which also includes the dates that the DOI will make information public, follows a similar approach as last year.

  • June 15 - Deadline for health insurance companies to file their proposed individual and small group plans and premiums for the 2019 plan year with the Division.
  • July 13 - The DOI will make the preliminary information on proposed plans and premiums available to the public.
  • August 3 - Deadline for comments from the public.
  • Late Summer / Early Fall - Release of final, approved plans and premiums for 2019.

“Even though the first deadline is only a month away, the Division started preparing for 2019 back in January,” said Interim Insurance Commissioner Michael Conway. “Like last year, we expect challenges and uncertainty around health insurance. However, our folks will be ready to review everything that comes in this summer.”

When available, consumers will be able to view the 2019 submissions from health insurance companies at the Division’s “Health Insurance Filings and Approved Plans” page.
