Colorado Indigent Care Program (CICP)
The CICP distributes federal and state funds to partially compensate qualified health care providers for uncompensated costs associated with services rendered to uninsured, low-income residents. Qualified health care providers who receive this funding deliver discounted health care services to Colorado residents, migrant workers and legal immigrants with limited financial resources who are uninsured or underinsured and not eligible for benefits under Medicaid CHP+.
Signed into law on March 23, 2010, the Affordable Care Act (health reform law) has broad impact on those with and without insurance.
Individuals currently enrolled in CICP may be newly eligible for Medicaid or discounted health insurance coverage purchased through the Connect for Health Colorado marketplace beginning January 2014.
