About Us


We're the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing.

Health First Colorado

We oversee and operate Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid program), Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), and other public health care programs for Coloradans who qualify.

Our mission is to improve health care equity, access and outcomes for the people we serve while saving Coloradans money on health care and driving value for Colorado. This means that we work to make our members healthier while getting the most for every dollar that is spent.

Whether you seek health care, provide health care, or care about health care, we are here to serve you.
