Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) is a program designed by the State of Colorado. It is intended to provide medical and dental coverage for uninsured Colorado children through age 18. The program provides assistance to families that earn too much to qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford private insurance.
The eligibility of participants in this program is determined by the State of Colorado. If a child is eligible for Medicaid, he or she is not eligible for CHP+.
