Web event will explain updated insurance options for valley residents
A regional collaboration among local employers, doctors and hospitals known as the Valley Health Alliance has laid the groundwork for new health insurance choices this fall for businesses and individuals from Aspen to Parachute.
The group will host a public Facebook Live community event from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Thursday to introduce the new plans. The livestream will be broadcast on the Facebook pages of the Aspen Chamber Resort Association, Basalt Chamber of Commerce, Carbondale Chamber of Commerce, Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association and the Western Garfield County Chamber of Commerce, according to a news release Tuesday from VHA.
The presentation will include representatives from insurance companies, doctors and hospital managers, members of the alliance’s board and representatives from the five chambers. It will be moderated by Aspen Skiing Co.’s Senior Vice President and Chief of Human Resources Jim Laing.
United Healthcare and its subsidiary Rocky Mountain Health Plans will be competing head-to-head with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield in the small group and individual health insurance markets thanks in part to the work of the VHA, according to the release.
