Boulder County has launched an outreach campaign, which targets residents who currently do not have health insurance. The campaign encourages them to learn about their options for coverage through Connect for Health Colorado (C4HCO), the state’s health insurance marketplace. The county has increased staff to help residents during the open enrollment period, which runs now through January 31, 2016.
The outreach campaign is titled “Why Me?” and focuses on individuals who have yet to enroll in health insurance even though it is mandated by law under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The county estimates that nearly 10,000 residents are currently living without health insurance, with a majority of these uninsured including Latino residents and young adults. Since the ACA was implemented, Boulder County has seen the number of uninsured resident decrease by sixty percent.

Yes, we express our thanks for everything. Enjoy Thanksgiving, a day to give our thanks. (I read where there are 880 million people in the world are eating 48 million turkeys.)
It will soon be time to put your petition in to run for the town board. The deadline is January 25. All seven seats (Mayor and six Trustees) are up for election. Four votes against marijuana would ax it. Do we need the money, as the state is bringing in millions? A big question. Round up those who said they can find us housing, want or do not want marijuana,
