GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - Colorado insurance officials are starting a road tour to answer questions about health insurance pricing and cancellations.
But few people seem interested, if the first meeting is any indication.
State Insurance Commissioner Marguerite Salazar was in Greeley Monday night to explain why some 250,000 Coloradans received insurance cancellation notices because of the new law. She also talked about why health insurance costs more in rural areas.
But just a handful of folks showed up to the presentation. Several more meetings are planned across the state in coming weeks.
Salazar said the state will review the pricing areas. In areas where premiums are higher, some have complained. Salazar pointed out that private insurers have always made such distinctions.
On the overall health law, Salazar said, "the train has left the station."
