Qualifying Life Event

A change in your life may mean you can qualify for a Special Enrollment Period to enroll in private health coverage through the Marketplace, Connect for Health Colorado. Examples of qualifying life events are moving to a new state, changes in your income, and changes in your family size (for example, if you marry, divorce or have a baby).

You can apply for Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) at any time. If you qualify for Health First Colorado, you can enroll right way. If you or someone in your household qualify for CHP+, you may be required to pay an annual enrollment fee before you can enroll. You can learn more about whether you will need to pay a CHP+ enrollment fee by clicking on the “Payment” tab in your Colorado.gov/PEAK account. You will also get a letter in the mail about the annual enrollment fee for CHP+. You can pay your annual enrollment fee online through your PEAK account or by downloading the free Health First Colorado mobile app from the iTunes and Google Play stores.
