Affordable, Customizable Health Coverage for CIADA Members!

The CIADA has worked tirelessly with Mark Harrington and his team to bring CIADA members a unique and affordable health insurance option. Many of the plans offer a $0 deductible and include free Teladoc and over 700 free drug prescriptions. Because of the success, the plan has expanded to 4 other state associations. We are happy to announce that there will be more unique plans offered to allow you to truly customize offerings. Whether you have 2 people or 100, we encourage you to look into this plan. All of the enrollment and leg work is managed by the program, so you do not need to worry about burdening yourself or your staff with health administration. We encourage members to sign up for a short, personal presentation to review the offerings.

CIADA January 2024 Title Class

We Are Improving Our Community Together

When Executive Director Darla Dakin and Rebekah Cohen attended the 2023 Charity Gala representing Camp Wapiyapi, a free camp for children with pediatric cancer and their siblings, they had no idea what to expect other than a possible monetary donation. On January 10, 2024, Darla and the Camp Wapiyapi Board of Directors were presented a check for $102,000 to help them continue “Changing Lives” of children across Colorado. They are honored to be chosen for this generous donation and want to thank all the donors, sponsors and volunteers who made this possible! THANK YOU! [Click to see more recipients!]
