6 Adjusting household size for those who still need coverage Applicants will have the opportunity to adjust their application to reflect the household members who still need health insurance (if the household members seeking coverage are different than the household composition entered for eligibility in PEAK.)
7 Adjusting household size for those who still need coverage This question is not asking for the tax household. It is asking for the insurance household. Applicants will be able to define the tax household when they are in the Family and Household section of the application.

9 Messages/Alerts There is a problem with your application. Please contact a service representative at PLANS-4-YOU ( ) or continue enrolling in a qualified health plan without financial assistance.( This message displays if the applicant has entered a 1BXXXXX number but there is one of several denial reasons on the PEAK file that was transmitted to C4HCO (e.g., no SSN, applicant is on Medicaid in another state, and a couple of others). These denial reasons are not reasons a person could become eligible for APTC. Please note the message above will be generated if anyone on the PEAK application has received one of these denials.

12 Messages/Alerts If we are not interfacing with the federal data services hub for verifications (see previous slide), the customer can still elect to continue with manual verifications. If you think you may have mistyped information on a screen, you can try again and click Re-Submit.
13 Verifications If manual verifications are needed, the required documents will be listed on the results page. Applicants can upload documents to their account, or mail or fax supporting documents.
14 Messages/Alerts This warning will display if you adjust the number of household members applying for coverage, or if you make changes to application information that has been transferred from PEAK.
15 Completing additional information For the time being some questions will be repeated on the Connect for Health Colorado application that were already answered in PEAK, with the exception of the question about American Indian/Alaska Native.
16 Proceeding to plan shopping The questions for this decision support tool will help customers better understand their out of pocket costs. These questions are optional and can be skipped if desired.
17 Completing enrollment The system will take the customer through several steps for initial and ongoing payment of premium (see this slide and next slide). No payment will be made at this time, but these steps must be completed for enrollment. The selected health/dental plan carriers will invoice enrollees and will allow them to make a payment via check, debit, credit, etc.

20 Policy and Process Qs and As Will there still be functions that only the Service Center can perform? o In some cases with complex households, the Service Center may need to help appropriately complete the application. o Service Center will be needed to help edit applications that have already been submitted. o A job aid is also being prepared to assist Health Coverage Guides to handle these complete household scenarios.
