Help Families Renew Coverage and Updates to Benefits

In May, NPR reported that hundreds of thousands of people across the nation are losing their access to state health insurance plans (click here to read the NPR article). Amongst the reasons for the loss of coverage are administrative processes that result in families not receiving notifications for their renewal paperwork. However, Health First Colorado has provided  communications to ensure Colorado families can maintain access to this crucial coverage. Together with providers, Colorado families can be informed on what they can do to ensure they get the right information to maintain access to state medical and dental benefit plans.   

Medical and dental providers across the state can help families maintain access to this coverage by communicating with them about updating their information in PEAK and encouraging regular dental visits. By signing into PEAK, families can ensure that they receive the information and notices they need to maintain coverage for medical and dental services

Children’s plans also have no annual limit for covered benefits. Click here to see the flyer and click here to find the flyer in Spanish.
