Health Care Reform
The Affordable Care Act puts consumers back in charge of their health care. Under the law, a new “Patient’s Bill of Rights” gives the American people the stability and flexibility they need to make informed choices about their health.
In January 2014, Medicaid eligibility requirements expanded to 133% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) for all individuals. The expansion of Medicaid will allow more than 160,000 Coloradans to gain access to Medicaid. You can access Colorado PEAK to see if you are currently eligible for Medicaid. The Health Insurance Marketplace helps people who are not eligible for Medicaid.
