Colorado Insurance Marketplace Enrolling Uninsured

Lead in text: 
While many other states refrain from getting into the health insurance business, Colorado is pressing on with efforts to educate the uninsured public about the state-run health insurance marketplace. Connect for Health Colorado is Colorado's answer to the Affordable Care Act, key provisions of which go into effect at the end of this year.
The market’s employees are traveling the state to explain how it will work, often in electric yellow T-shirts with the message, “Got Insurance?” In the coming weeks, 400 guides will be trained to help the uninsured sign up for coverage, with some targeting groups like Hispanics, gay and lesbian citizens, and even truckers.
