Adding Benefits Under Medicaid (2023)

Health Care & Health Insurance

Medicaid is a joint federal and state program that provides health benefits and services to Coloradans who meet eligibility requirements. Each state administers its own Medicaid program, and the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) set standards for the program to receive federal financial participation. The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) oversees Colorado’s Medicaid. This issue brief summarizes the process to add benefits under Medicaid.

The effective date for bills enacted without a safety clause is August 7, 2024, if the General Assembly adjourns sine die on May 8, 2024, unless otherwise specified. Details
