English is not my first language. Will Health First Colorado pay for a translator during my doctor visits?
Translators are not a Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) benefit. Doctors and other medical providers must offer effective communication with their patients. Effective communication includes translators, American Sign Language interpreters, written material in another language, or other options to help people who speak a language other than English and for people with a disability. For more information, contact the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Coordinator.
