In Colorado, Medicaid is now known as Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program). Health First Colorado is public health insurance for low-income Coloradans who qualify. While the name and look have changed, member eligibility, benefits, and choice of providers will remain the same.
*If you received a letter from Health Care Policy and Financing entitled “Update on benefit termination” and have questions about Health First Colorado or CHP+ benefits or billing, please call the Member Contact Center at 1-800-221-3943 (State Relay: 711) Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
If you believe you are eligible for benefits through Health First Colorado or CHP+, you should reapply to find out.
You may reapply for benefits online at Colorado.gov/PEAK, or by visiting your county Department of Human Services. Most people who apply online will find out if they are eligible and can begin receiving benefits that same day.*
Children’s Health Plan Plus
Children’s Health Plan Plus (CHP+) is a low-cost health insurance program for eligible children and pregnant women who do not qualify for Health First Colorado.
