The Colorado Consumer Health Initiative Wednesday launched a new website,“Covered U,” to help the newly insured navigate how and where to find health care services.

CoveredU.org is a tool that community-based health groups and Connect for Health Colorado guides could use to help educate health care consumers on buying and using health insurance, CCHI says.

“Now that Coloradans can sign up for health insurance again under open enrollment, it’s important that they not only know how to buy the best plan for their health care needs, but also know how to use that insurance,” Adam Fox, CCHI director of strategic engagement, said in a press release. “The interactive website will allow consumers to compare their health care choices and costs in basic scenarios and identify what kind of coverage might best suite them.”
