Medical Assistance
Program Types
Arapahoe County assists eligible individuals with applying for the following Colorado public health insurance programs:
  • Medicaid is free or low cost public health insurance for Coloradans who qualify. Medicaid can cover your doctor visits, emergency care, preventative care such as screenings and immunizations, and other procedures and treatments. You may also qualify for Long-Term Care Medicaid which can include nursing facility care and Home and Community-Based Services where health care providers deliver care in your home.
  • Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) is low-cost public health insurance for Colorado's uninsured children and pregnant women who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but cannot afford private insurance.

How to Apply

Note: When you apply for Medicaid, you are applying for both Medicaid and CHP+. You do not need to turn in more than one application for you or your family.

Find Private Coverage
If you learn that you are not eligible for Medicaid, you can purchase private health insurance on your own or through the Connect for Health Colorado health insurance marketplace. You may qualify for a cost-savings program through the marketplace to lower the cost of your premium and reduce your co-pays and deductibles.
