Colorado last week received approval from the federal government to launch the “Colorado Option” — a new state-sponsored health plan created by a Section 1332 State Innovation Waiver. The plan will aim to cover about 10,000 people, with the goals of increasing health statewide health coverage and reducing racial and economic disparities. 5,311,686 people currently receive medical insurance benefits in Colorado. 30.2% of those lives are enrolled in Colorado Medicaid.
