Human Rights Committee

Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid program) is a health care program for low income Coloradans. A waiver is an extra set of Health First Colorado benefits that you can qualify for in certain cases. Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waiver services complement and/or supplement the services that are available through the Medicaid State plan and other Federal, state and local public programs as well as the supports that families and communities provide to individuals. These benefits can help an individual remain in your home and community and, thereby, avoid institutionalization.


The Human Rights Committee (HRC) is a third-party mechanism to safeguard the rights of persons receiving services. The Human Rights Committee is an advisory and review body to the administration of the community center board or regional center.
