Aurora Health Access is committed to creating a health care system that meets the needs of all Aurora residents. This includes finding affordable health insurance for Aurora residents. Whether you need personal health insurance or insurance for your whole family, we’re here to help you find coverage.
Health insurance will help you get the care you need when someone in your family is sick or hurt. When compared to those without health insurance, people with health insurance are physically, mentally, and financially healthier. Uninsured individuals are more often diagnosed at a later disease stage and receive less treatment for their medical conditions compared to people with health insurance.
Colorado has many affordable health insurance options for families and more are becoming available every day. If you looking for a health plan, see the list below for application assistance sites, programs you may qualify for, and other useful resources.
Health Insurance Programs
Colorado Medicaid is public health insurance for families, children, pregnant women, persons who are blind or persons with disabilities and the elderly. To learn more, visit the website or call 800-221-3943.
Child Health Plan Plus
Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) is a low-cost insurance option for children and pregnant women who earn too much for Medicaid, but cannot afford private health insurance. Even if you have been turned down in the past, you may be able to get insurance coverage for your kids now. A family of four with an income up to $55,000 a year may be able to get their kids covered. To learn more, visit the website or call 800-359-1991.
GettingUSCovered was established by the Affordable Care Act for people who have a condition that prevents them from getting health insurance. It provides comprehensive benefits, including mental health and prescriptions. GettingUSCovered is not a low-income plan, but members pay the same rate a person without a health condition would pay for individual insurance. To learn more, visit the website or call 877-397-1109.
The new national health care reform law provides both private and public opportunities for coverage for kids and families. Learn more at www.healthcare.gov.
