Depending on federal budget actions, the Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), a low-cost health plan for qualifying children and pregnant women, could be eliminated. This month the Colorado General Assembly’s Joint Budget Committee approved short-term funding that extends CHP+ at least until the end of February. The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, which administers the program, has set up a Future of CHP+ webpage that includes updated information as well as FAQs. If you are a member of CHP+ or are considering enrollment, be sure to check this page often for updates.
The CHP+ program has been available to Coloradans for the last twenty years. Search “child health plan plus” in our library’s online catalog for hundreds of reports on the program, including monthly and quarterly statistics; annual reports; various analysis reports; member benefits information; statutorily required reports; and much more.
