Future of Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+)
The information on this page is current as of November 20, 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.
The information on these pages has been created by the Department to provide CHP+ members, providers, stakeholders & advocates, and counties and eligibility partners information about the possible end of the CHP+ program.
The Department has developed information and resources for CHP+ members and applicants, CHP+ providers, counties & eligibility partners and stakeholders & advocates.
