Individuals and families can still buy a full price plan rather than taking Health First Colorado or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+).  You would have to pay full price for the plan because you won’t qualify for premium tax credit.

Children who are eligible for CHP+ and enroll in a full price plan will lose their CHP+ coverage, as you cannot have other insurance and CHP+ at the same time.

Individuals and families do not need to submit multiple applications when they want to apply for a plan through Connect for Health Colorado and Health First Colorado. One application submitted through Connect for Health Colorado can result in a Health First Colorado determination, and we will share data from your application with the state, so you don’t have to submit separate applications.
