Good news! Beginning March 1, 2014, children who have either Medicaid or CHP+ benefits will have continuous coverage for 12 months, even if their family’s income or household size changes. Continuous coverage for Medicaid and CHP+ children can help greatly streamline eligibility checks for providers, and eliminate eligibility and billing problems caused by changing coverage. It also improves continuity of care, and can help provide consistent access to preventive and primary care services – resulting in better health for covered children.

Colorado’s limited adult Medicaid benefit is now available. Qualifying adults are able to visit a dental practice or clinic that is already enrolled in Medicaid and can accept Medicaid payments. The adult dental benefit allows Medicaid enrolled clients, age 21 years and over, to receive a number of basic dental services currently offered to children such as evaluations, diagnostic imaging, preventive and restorative services.
