The ACA is an unprecedented opportunity for better client care

Who is eligible and not eligible?

Most justice involved individuals will be eligible for coverage either through Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) or the Connect for Health Colorado exchange marketplace. The majority will be eligible for Health First Colorado and eligibility will be based on income, household size and an individual’s status in the criminal justice system.

Who do I need to know?

The Take Care – Health Matters Professional Guide provides county level health-related and criminal justice-related information to help individuals in these fields build relationships and assist clients with better access to care. The purpose of this guide is to connect Colorado criminal justice agencies, health care professionals and community organizations so that they may assist justice involved individuals who qualify for Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program).
