Medicaid & CHP+

What We Do

Healthy Communities (formerly EPSDT) is a program for children and youth age 20 and under and pregnant women.

Through our Healthy Communities Program, we help children and pregnant women understand their Medicaid benefits and achieve or maintain health through regular checkups.

Our eligibility specialists:
Explain Medicaid and CHP+ benefits such as: vision care, dental care, mental health and behavioral services, prescription drugs, and co-payments.
Connect you with a physician and Medical Home.
Explain the importance of preventive health care.
Put you in touch with other low or no cost services in the community like food resources, transportation, and parenting support.

Who qualifies?
All Colorado citizens who want to access public programs or those who are already eligible for public programs and are under the age of 21 or pregnant.
