Qualified applicants under the age of nineteen are accepted on a guarantee issue basis without any limitations or riders based on health status. A carrier may deny coverage to an applicant for enrollment in a child-only plan if other creditable coverage is available, which can include current enrollment in a high-risk pool plan. Other eligibility requirements may also apply. For Child-Only applicants under age nineteen we are offering the SmartSense Plus Child-Only 2500 Standard Rx (0H69)
product. Applicants should apply separately using the Colorado Child-Only Application (COCHOAPP)
during either an Open Enrollment period or upon a Qualifying Event.
Open Enrollment periods occur every January 1-31 and July 1-31, followed by a 30-day waiting period with a policy effective date of March 1st or August 31st. Applications must be received during the Open Enrollment period.
Anthem must receive the application by 3 pm MT (5 pm ET) the last day of the Open Enrollment period.
Applications will be processed for Child-Only plans if Anthem receives the application within 30 days of a qualifying event listed below. Coverage can start on any day of the month after the date we receive the application for a qualifying event. The requested effective date is not a guarantee that the effective date will be the requested date in the event we agree to provide coverage.
Child-Only policies are guarantee issue but are medically underwritten for assignment of correct medical risk tier. We have added a Level 1+200 rate tier in support of the Child-Only policy.
