Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+)


We can help you apply for CHP+, low-cost health and dental insurance for children and pregnant women. It’s for families that make too much money to join Medicaid but not enough to afford private insurance. Generally, a family of four with an income up to $55,000 a year will qualify for CHP+. To qualify, a person must:

  • Be pregnant or 18 or younger
  • Live in Colorado
  • Not qualify for Medicaid
  • Not have other health insurance
  • Have family income with CHP+ income limits
  • Be U.S. citizens, legal permanent U.S. residents for at least five years (excluding pregnant women and children) or an asylee or refugee.

Depending on family size and income, some famlies may need to pay an annual enrollment fee and co-pays (payment at time of visit). The maximum annual fee is $105. Co-pays range between $2 and $50 for some medical and dental services. Pregnant women have no co-pays. Pregnant woman can get health care right away while she waits for CHP+ to look at her application. This is called Presumptive Eligibility. Children in CHP+ get health services in an HMO (Health Maintenance Organization). An HMO is a group of doctors, nurses, hospitals and other providers who work together to give children in CHP+ health care. Members must visit a doctor who is in their CHP+ HMO. For more information, call 970-871-7330 in Steamboat Springs and 970-871-7324 in Craig.
