What is the Income Eligibility and Verification System (IEVS)?


The Income Eligibility and Verification System or IEVS is a system that compares the income that you report when you apply for Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) with the income employers report to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment for all of their employees. If there is a big difference between the income you report and the employer-reported income in IEVS, you may be asked to explain why the numbers are different, and/or to provide  proof of your income.
