Volunteers of America's assistance site for Connect for Health Colorado in Montrose has moved. The new offices are located in the Park Avenue Professional Building, 121 North Park Avenue, on the corner of North 1st and Park Avenue.
The phone number remains the same -- 252-0660 - and health coverage guides are available to answer questions and provide assistance to those who are looking for help enrolling with a plan.
Open enrollments and renewals will be from Nov. 15 to Jan. 31. If you have a qualified life change event and need to make a change to your 2015 coverage, please call for assistance. Certain changes can be made right away.
Small businesses can apply for insurance and financial assistance throughout the year. Some businesses can qualify for tax credits as much as 50 percent of premium costs for small employers and 35 percent of premium costs for non-profits. Employers can offer employees multiple health insurance companies and plan choices.

Thanks to the efforts of state Rep. Millie Hamner, House District 61, Colorado State University plans to re-open the Rogers Mesa research site.
The facility was taken out of operation in 2011, due to budget cuts throughout the CSU system.
