As you may be aware, if Congress does not renew federal funding, CHP+ in Colorado will end on January 31, 2018. Congress can pass a law at any time to renew federal funding for CHP+, but there is no guarantee that they will.
As of today, there are no changes to CHP+ benefits, eligibility or enrollment.
The Department has developed resources to help you answer questions from CHP+ applicants and members. We encourage you to bookmark CO.gov/HCPF/FutureCHP and subscribe to our Future of CHP+ updates here.
