A website spoofing Colorado PEAK recently was discovered that may confuse PEAK clients. The state is working to shut the website down and taking steps to limit future threats. The website does not have malware, but does send visitors to links where they may be asked to provide information or make a purchase.
Which is why we wanted to alert you. If a client asks about visiting a site other than CO.go/PEAK (coloradopeak.secure.force.com), please share these reminders to protect their information:
- CO.gov/PEAK is a secure site. The URL will start with “https” or show a lock symbol.
- Look for the Colorado PEAK logo, State of Colorado logo or program logos (like Health First Colorado) on the various PEAK websites and apps.
- Clients never have to pay to apply, update their account or ask questions about benefits.
- Clients should only share their personal information with county office workers, PEAK community partners and through the official PEAK website.
Two notable upcoming PEAK outagesAs part of a state data center modernization project, PEAK will be unavailable due to two longer-than-usual outages in October:
- 5 p.m. Sunday, October 4 – 8 a.m. Monday, October 5
- 5 p.m. Sunday, October 11 – 8 a.m. Monday, October 12
These outages will allow for upgrades that will result in long-term benefits, including a reduction in the number of planned outages going forward.
