What is a mixed eligibility household?

This is when one or more family members are approved for a Qualified Health Plan, Premium Tax Credits, and/or Cost-Sharing Reductions and other members of the same household are approved for Health First Colorado or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+).

Mixed eligibility households should report all changes and do their annual redetermination through Program Eligibility and Application Kit (PEAK), the online application for Health First Colorado and other state assistance programs. Connect for Health Colorado’s Medical Assistance (MA) Site will provide support for case maintenance for mixed eligibility households.

Household members on different programs may have different renewal and certification timelines.  Check your PEAK account for Health First Colorado/CHP+ redetermination date and your Connect for Health account for information specific to your Marketplace plan.
