Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) Member Letters

The information on this page is current as of December 4, 2017.

Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) is low-cost public health insurance for children and pregnant women who qualify. It is for people who earn too much to qualify for Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid Program), but not enough to pay for private health insurance. CHP+ is paid for by a combination of state and federal funding. For CHP+ to continue in Colorado, Congress must pass a law to renew federal funding for the program.

If Congress does not renew federal funding, CHP+ in Colorado will end on January 31, 2018.  
This page contains copies of correspondence to CHP+ members about the potential end of the program. New letters will be added as they become available.  

CHP+ members will be sent letters in late November and in late December 2017, if Congress does not act.
