There are certain changes you can make to your current 2014 coverage through our Marketplace, including adding or removing a dependent or reviewing your financial assistance, and applying for Medicaid or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+).

Situations that may allow you to shop for a new plan or change an existing plan Situations that may allow you to make changes to your existing coverage
  • You got married or were legally united through a civil union or domestic partnership
  • Your family grew through birth or adoption
  • Your tribal status changed
  • Your legal residence changed
  • You were incorrectly or inappropriately enrolled in a health plan for some reason that is not due to an error or omission on your part
  • Your income changed enough to impact your eligibility or amount of financial assistance
  • Your health insurance carrier violated its contract with you
  • Your household size has gotten smaller
  • One of your dependents is no longer eligible for coverage under your health insurance plan because he/she is turning or has turned 26

If you would like to make any of these changes, call the Customer Service Center at 855-PLANS-4-YOU (855-752-6749). We can make certain changes right away. Others, we will help coordinated with your carrier.

If you are receiving monthly financial assistance to help with the cost of your health plan, you can decide how much of the tax credit to use now or claim on your taxes next year. Depending on your situation, it may be a good idea to use less of the credit up-front if your income fluctuates throughout the year, so you can avoid paying the credit back next year on your taxes. You can call us if you’d like to change the amount you’re currently receiving.

If your income has gone up more than 10%, reporting the change can help protect you from having to pay when you file your income taxes. If your income has gone down 10% or more, you could be eligible for a larger tax credit – or for Medicaid. Either way, call us to help protect yourself from surprises at tax time.

If you are enrolled in Medicaid or CHP+, or you have an income or household change that could make you eligible for these programs, you may need to contact the State of Colorado. If you or a member of your family is currently enrolled in Medicaid or CHP+, please report changes through PEAK:
