- I have received discounted services through CICP providers in the past. Will I still qualify?
The Colorado Indigent Care Program (CICP) is not health insurance, but rather provides limited, discounted health care services to low income individuals at participating providers. CICP partially compensates participating providers who care for the uninsured and underinsured at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. Individuals may be required to pay the difference between the provider’s charges and the amount CICP pays. Health care services are provided by hospitals and clinics throughout Colorado, but not all hospitals and clinics participate in the program.
Beginning in January 2014 individuals currently enrolled in CICP may be newly eligible for Medicaid or for new financial assistance to purchase health insurance through the Connect for Health Colorado marketplace. Applications for both Medicaid and Connect for Health Colorado can be accepted beginning in October 2013, with health care coverage beginning as early as January 1, 2014. Since CICP is not a health insurance program, it does not satisfy the requirement for most individuals to have health insurance beginning January 2014.
