How is Health First Colorado different from Medicare?
Medicare is a federal government-sponsored health care program primarily for seniors. Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) is health care for low-income families and is managed by both the state and federal governments. Medicare and Health First Colorado differ in terms of who they cover, how they are funded and governed.
