The Public Health Emergency (PHE) for COVID-19 is expected to end May 11, 2023 -- and possibly sooner, given recent congressional action -- and with it comes the end of continuous coverage for your patients who are covered by Health First Colorado (Medicaid) and Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+). The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) estimates more than 325,000 Coloradans may no longer qualify for safety net coverage and the department has asked providers and practices to help keep Coloradans covered. Here's how you can help:

  • Display flyers in English and Spanish in your waiting room and utilize other KeepCOCovered awareness posters, social media images, virtual backgrounds and signature tags available here
  • Help connect Coloradans who no longer qualify for these programs to alternative, affordable forms of health coverage; find tools to accomplish this shared goal and more at
