GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Time is running out to sign up for health insurance this year.
Connect for Health Colorado is a state-based health insurance, for those who need a little extra help paying for coverage.
Hilltop's Health Access team is encouraging everyone eligible to stop by with any questions and say they'll help with the application process.
Those who want to enroll need to bring their income information, birthdays and the social security numbers of the family members that are also enrolling.
"It's just the peace of mind. We all buy insurance in the hopes that we don't use it. You think about your car insurance or your homeowner's insurance. It's really just to have that added layer of protection,” said Hilltop's health guide, Anna Qubel. "We want to encourage people to go and get their preventative care done."
The deadline to get insurance is Friday, Jan. 12 by midnight. You can sign up online or at Hilltop's Health Access.
