Children’s Health Plan Plus (CHP+) for pregnant women and children
The Children’s Health Plan Plus (CHP+) is a state medical program for children and pregnant women. You can look at the income chart to find out if you may be able to get CHP+. A person cannot get both Health First Colorado and CHP+. Also, a person cannot turn down CHP+ and ask for Health First Colorado if that person is able to get CHP. If you get CHP+, you may have to pay an enrollment fee. This is not paid to the Douglas County Department of Human Services, and you will get a letter in the mail that tells you how to make the payment.
To apply, you have to turn in an application. You can also get an application by calling CHP+ at (800) 359-1991.
You can turn in your CHP+ application to the Douglas County Department of Human Services or send it directly to CHP+ at:
Department of Health Care Policy & Financing
PO Box 17548
Denver, CO 80217
If your CHP+ application is approved, the Douglas County Department of Human Services will not be your contact for ongoing questions. You will have to contact CHP+ directly regarding your CHP+ approval and case.
Every year you will have to apply again to make sure you are still able to get CHP+.
