Fewer Coloradans enrolled in Obamacare this past year; it was to be expected, though, as they had less time to do it.

The Trump administration trimmed the enrollment window from three months to 45 days.

Colorado has its own exchange, Connect For Health Colorado, and, unlike many other states, it was able to extend its enrollment window to 73 days.

More than 165,000 Coloradans enrolled; last year, 172,000 signed up.
