Opinion: Staying with a proven benefit as ACA deadline looms

By Donna Smith

It wasn’t an easy decision to make. Many people urged me to choose a cheaper plan, and some even thought I should select the cheapest plan available on the Connect for Health Colorado health insurance exchange. But I didn’t do that. I looked at several factors, and I decided even if it is marginally more expensive to choose the Kaiser Permanente gold plan that I did, it is the right fit for me.
