We are excited that you are taking steps to learn about insurance options for your family! Insurance Outreach at Cherry Creek Schools will connect you to local certified application assistance sites, such as Colorado Access and Metro Community Provider Network (MCPN) that will assist you with applying for Health First Colorado, formally Medicaid, or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) or medical discount programs, whichever you are eligible for. You can apply to any of these programs anytime of the year.
Health First Colorado
Medicaid in Colorado is known as Health First Colorado. This program provides free or low cost health insurance for Coloradans who qualify. Children, pregnant women, persons with disabilities and low income families or adults and the elderly can all potentially qualify for this public health insurance. To apply, visit Health First Colorado.
Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+)
CHP+ is a low cost public health insurance for Colorado’s uninsured children and pregnant women who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but cannot afford private health insurance. For more information visit Child Health Plan Plus.
The Health First Colorado Buy-In Program for Children with Disabilities
The Medicaid Buy-In Program for Children with Disabilities is a medical assistance program that provides Medicaid benefits for children who are under age 19, have a qualifying disability and whose family income meets state guidelines. For more information visit Medicaid Buy-In Program.
