I am a Health First Colorado member. What do I do if I am out-of-state and need to go to the doctor?

If you are temporarily out of the state but still a resident of Colorado, you may receive some Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid program) benefits under certain conditions:

  1. It is a medical emergency.
  2. Your health would be endangered if you were required to return to Colorado for the medical care/treatment.
  3. The health care provider that treats you must enroll in the Health First Colorado program. Health care providers can visit the For Our Providers page for more information.

If you have more questions about seeing a health care provider out of state, call the Member Contact Center.
