Keep using Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+)

Posted Oct. 13th, 2017
Our thanks to the CHIP Coalition for creating this.

It’s still the quality program it has always been. You may have heard about funding challenges for the program at the federal level. While lawmakers continue to debate the program, it’s important that Colorado keeps enrolling qualified children and pregnant women. If we don’t, thousands will miss out on quality health care and it will take years to rebuild the coverage gains we’ve all worked so hard to achieve.

While you work to keep our children and pregnant women healthy, we’ll work to keep this critical program funded.

Who Qualifies for CHP+?

  •  Children age 18 and under and pregnant women age 19 and over

  • Lawfully residing children and pregnant women with no five year waiting period
  • Applicants not eligible for Health First Colorado
  • Applicants who do not have other health insurance
