Our Work

Covering Kids and Families wants to improve how Coloradans access and retain affordable health coverage.

The coverage programs we focus on are Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid program), Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), and financial assistance programs through Connect for Health Colorado that help Coloradans purchase private insurance.


Providing Support
for Community-Based Organizations

Coloradans turn to trusted community-based organizations when they need help with health coverage. That is why we support a state-wide network of community-based organizations. One of our key activities is connecting community-based organizations with the information they need to help Coloradans apply for, enroll in, and retain health coverage.


Bridging Community-Based Organizations
& State Agencies

Community-based organizations help connect their community members to the services their clients need. They are some of the first to notice when a policy or system is working well, or if an issue is emerging that needs improvement. Covering Kids and Families gathers the experiences of community-based organizations and brings those experiences to the agencies that manage Colorado’s health coverage programs. Through stronger communication, we improve the Coloradans’ health coverage experience.


Advocating Policy
& System Improvements

Pairing the expertise of the Covering Kids and Families network of community-based organizations with the well-developed policy expertise of the Covering Kids and Families staff, we advocate for solution-oriented policy and systems improvements. Our advocacy centers around removing barriers that keep Coloradans from applying, getting an accurate eligibility determination, enrolling in a program that they are eligible for, or keeping the coverage they are still eligible for. Covering Kids and Families focuses on state-level regulatory policies and Colorado’s health coverage eligibility and enrollment technology systems.
