Tonik Colorado

Tonik Health Insurance now offered from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Colorado!

After first visiting Colorado President Theodore Roosevelt said, "this state is going to be more and more the playground for the whole republic... You will see this the real Switzerland of America". While snowboarding, skiing, climbing, biking, and kayaking may take place in both Switzerland and Colorado, one thing is very different - the lack of healthcare in Colorado.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Colorado introduced Tonik health insurance in 2004. Since that time the plan has attracted many enrollees, of which 70% did not have prior coverage. Tonik is unique because the plans are easy to understand and offer comprehensive coverage including Medical, Dental, and Vision coverage.

Colorado Tonik plans offer three deductible options: $1500, $3000, $5000. The plans are often marketed toward CO’s young and reckless, but anyone under the age of 65 can apply for Tonik in the state of Colorado.
