In May 2023, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services declared the end of the Public Health Emergency (PHE) which provided continuous coverage for many Coloradans. All current Medicaid/CHP+ enrollees should update their contact information to ensure they receive proper notice when it is time to begin their renewal process. To avoid gaps in coverage, members need complete renewal packets and provide required/requested verifications before the deadline given on notices. As a Certified Application Assistance Site (CAAS), we are here to help facilitate this process.
In 2021, Colorado passed a new law that expanded the access to health insurance accessibility and coverage, regardless of citizenship status. More information about eligibility requirements can be found HERE.
