Colorado gets federal approval for reinsurance plan
DENVER -- Gov. Jared Polis announced Wednesday that the federal government has approved a reinsurance plan designed to lower premiums for individuals buying insurance on the Colorado health care exchange. The Democrat already had released projections showing that premiums next year for 400,000 Coloradans -- about 8% of those buying insurance on the exchange -- will drop by more than 18% with a reinsurance plan in place.
