I receive coverage through the Veterans Administration. What does the health care law mean for my family members?


Veterans’ family members who already receive health care coverage — through their employers, TRICARE or certain VA programs — do not need to take additional steps to meet the health care law coverage standards.

Veterans’ family members who do not have coverage that meets the health care law’s requirements should consider their options. Family members of Veterans may qualify for free or low-cost coverage through Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+). They may also qualify to financial assistance (tax credit) to help lower the costs of their monthly premiums or out-of-pocket costs through the Connect for Health Colorado Marketplace. Coloradans can apply for health care coverage through the Health First Colorado, CHP+ and Connect for Health Colorado Marketplace by filling out one application.
