Boulder County Healthy Kids and Adults is a program to improve the community’s health by linking all eligible children, adults, families and pregnant women in Boulder County to available benefits and health coverage options. Our mission is to ensure that every resident in Boulder County has health insurance coverage and access to health care.

What Boulder County Healthy Kids and Adults can do for you!

Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) is low-cost health insurance for Colorado’s uninsured children and pregnant women. CHP+ is public health insurance for children and pregnant women who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but cannot afford private health insurance. Colorado Medicaid is public health insurance for families, children, pregnant women, adults, persons who are blind or persons with disabilities and the elderly for Colorado residents.

When you apply, you apply for both Medicaid and CHP+. The program you qualify for depends upon family size, income and the age of the applicant.
