About Us

Colorado Covering Kids and Families (CKF) is a statewide, coalition-based project focused on increasing low-income Coloradans’ access to affordable health coverage and high quality health care. With a diverse membership of outreach and enrollment professionals, community-based organizations, application assistance sites, and health care providers and advocates, CKF works to:

  • Ensure that eligible children, pregnant women, parents and caretaker relatives, and adults without dependent children are enrolled in Medicaid, Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), and subsidized private insurance through Colorado’s state-based marketplace by coordinating and improving outreach efforts;
  • Identify the successes, challenges, and barriers low-income Coloradans face in enrolling in and retaining affordable health coverage and accessing health care services; and
  • Propose solutions that simplify, streamline, and coordinate affordable health coverage programs by maintaining strong relationships with the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, Colorado’s state-based marketplace, and other relevant entities.

The Colorado Community Health Network is the lead agency for the project. Click here for CKF’s project fact sheet. To learn more about the national CKF initiative, click here.
