I first went to https://www.healthcare.gov , and clicked the 'want to learn more first- start here' button, as I already have health insurance.
I answered a few basic questions, and then got the action step telling me to go to 'visit connect for health colorado now to apply'.
That put me to the Colorado website, where I went to 'shop now'
There I saw a 'browse plans'
I selected that, and was easily able to compare plans and their coverages. I also saw that I could purchase right away through a simple checkout process.
What I really liked is that my current service provider of Kaiser Permanente was on there. Their Silver plan was a much better option for me than what we currently get through my husband's work. I see a savings of $200 / month with better benefits
