Medicaid name change effective June 13!

Effective June 13, 2016, Medicaid in Colorado will become “Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program).” Member communication updates are underway and will continue throughout 2016.

Look for statewide advertising announcing this exciting change beginning the week of June 20th. This change is being funded through grants from the Colorado Health Foundation and Caring for Colorado.

Department stakeholders, contractors, community organizations and other interested parties will receive invitations to webinars introducing the new name and its relationship to the Department name – which is NOT changing! Resources will be available online to help organizations update print and digital materials as existing supplies run out. Stay tuned for additional updates on this change!
