Peak Health Alliance announces most affordable health insurance in nine rural Colorado counties

Peak Health Alliance, a Colorado High Country-focused nonprofit founded in 2019 in Summit County, announced new health insurance plans that it claims will be the most affordable offered in nine rural Colorado counties. 

The nonprofit is partnering with Elevate Health Plans through Denver Health Medical Plan to provide coverage to residents in Archuleta, Dolores, Grand, Lake, La Plata, Montezuma, Park, San Juan, and Summit counties. 

In a statement, Peak Health claimed its plans will be between 5% and 35% less than those offered in the nine counties, citing data on rates for other health insurance carriers released by the Colorado Division of Insurance on Oct. 23. Its plans provide zero-cost preventative care services as well as low- to no-cost primary care and mental health outpatient visits. 

The open enrollment period to sign up for coverage began on Nov. 1 and ends Jan. 15. Consumers looking for coverage beginning Jan. 1 will need to enroll by Dec. 31. 
The plans can be purchased through Connect for Health Colorado at and Elevate Health Plans at
