Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) is public low-cost health insurance for certain children and pregnant women. It is for people who earn too much to qualify for Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid program), but not enough to pay for private health insurance.

The CHP+ State Managed Care Network (SMCN) currently covers pregnant women, presumptively eligible (PE) members, and CHP+ members under the age of 19 before they are enrolled in a CHP+ health plan. The SMCN supports a statewide network of providers to make sure members can access health care services.

Beginning July 1, 2021, all CHP+ members will be automatically enrolled into a CHP+ health plan. As a result, the CHP+ SMCN will no longer be needed to deliver services. These frequently asked questions will help answer any questions you may have. If you have any questions about this change, call CHP+ SMCN Customer Service at 1-303-751-9051 or 1-800-414-6198 (toll free), Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. For TDD/TTY, call 1-888-803-4494.
