than in other states in 2014 and 2015, but 2016 is the first year that bronze plan selections have outnumbered silver in Colorado.

61 percent of QHP enrollees in 2016 are receiving subsidies that average $294 per month. The number of people receiving subsidies has increased by 35 percent over 2015 (more than 103,000 in 2016, versus more than 76,000 in 2015). Subsidies are available to more enrollees in 2016 because total QHP enrollment has increased, but also because average premiums are higher in 2016, so subsidies are necessary for more enrollees in order to keep the price of the benchmark plan at the percentage of income deemed affordable by the ACA .

In late 2015, many of the nation’s health insurance carriers began reducing or eliminating broker commissions, mostly for plans sold outside of open enrollment (during special enrollment periods triggered by qualifying events ) or for benefit-rich plans at the gold and/or platinum level.

The general consensus was that the commission cuts were an effort by health insurance carriers to limit sales in general, or to limit sales of benefit-rich plans, which tend to be more popular among enrollees who have health conditions, and are more expensive to insure. In 2014 and 2015, eligibility for special enrollment periods was very loosely enforced by Healthcare.gov and some of the state-run exchanges, and carriers noted that healthcare utilization tended to be higher for people who enrolled outside of open enrollment.

In December 2015, Colorado’s Department of Insurance issued a regulatory bulletin (B-4.87) stating that carriers cannot offer “differing commission structures,” which they defined as different commission levels for different metal levels , different commission structures for plans sold during open enrollment versus outside of open enrollment, or “not paying commissions on certain plans offered in the State of Colorado.” The Department of Insurance warned carriers that none of those actions are allowed, and that carriers that utilize differing commission structures would risk “enforcement actions to remedy those violations.”

The purpose of the state’s regulatory bulletin was to protect consumers’ access to the full range of plans available, regardless of whether the consumer is enrolling during open enrollment or as a result of a qualifying event, and regardless of what metal level plan the consumer needs.

Bulletin B-4.87 is still in effect, but some insurers in Colorado have simply switched to a model under which they pay no commissions at all for new enrollments. There’s no “differing commission structure” so the lack of commissions doesn’t run afoul of the regulation. But it does result in fewer brokers being willing to assist people with individual market coverage (commissions are still paid by all insurers for group health insurance plans).

The international climate adaptation knowledge centre will be accommodated in Rotterdam and Groningen. These two cities have reeled in the Global Centre of Excellence on Climate Adaptation (GCECA) by jointly submitting the most convincing bid. Decisive factors for the selection committee were the location of the cities, their expertise on the impact of climate change, and their innovative office buildings. In February of this year, Dutch Environment Minister Dijksma announced that the knowledge centre, to be set up in collaboration with the United Nations and Japan, will be established in the Netherlands.

Minister Dijksma: ‘With this climate centre, the Netherlands shows that it commands the knowledge and expertise to tackle the impact of climate change. And it is good news for Rotterdam and Groningen: such an institute will firmly enhance their position on the world map. Global warming is bound to hit increasingly more people hard. Our initiative for this global climate centre will assist countries and organisations that are looking for tangible solutions to combat climate change.’

Accessible and innovative Its location in the Dutch delta has gained Rotterdam an internationally strong reputation in the field of climate adaptation. In addition, the city boasts good international accessibility. It is building a new climate-neutral floating office building for the climate centre staff. In Groningen, the GCECA will be accommodated in the innovative, sustainable Energy Academy Europe office building. With its university and businesses already actively engaged in climate, the city offers a perfect seed-bed for the climate centre.

Accessible and innovative

International Jury The evaluation committee that assessed the seven candidates was composed of representatives from the UN Environment Programme, the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure the Environment, and Acclimatise consultants. In February, a working group was assembled to set up the centre. In 2018, the GCECA will eventually expand to twenty staff.

International Jury

The centre will liaise with a broad-based, worldwide network of partners, among which international knowledge institutes, businesses, interest organisations, local and national governments, and the financial sector. Their aim is to support parties in developing more effective ways of putting climate adaptation into practice. The assembly of knowledge on projects in fields such as infrastructure and agriculture will help to raise the climate change resilience of new roads, buildings, and farmland in vulnerable countries across the globe.

Participants Parties participating in the Global Centre of Excellence on Climate Adaptation include the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL), UN Environment, National Institute for Environmental Studies, Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT), SP Global, Delta Alliance, Deltares, Stockholm Environment Institute, Acclimatise, Netherlands Water Partnership, MCII, World Resources Institute, Wageningen University and Research, UNEP DTU Partnership, SNV Netherlands Development Organisation, Caribbean Community Climate Change Center, WRI, GEF, Adaptation Fund, The Nature Conservancy, NDC Partnership, Climate-KIC.
