I was told Health First Colorado pays for services only after other types of coverage pay first. What are some of the other types of coverage that pay for my services before Health First Colorado?

Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) is the payer of last resort in most situations. This means Health First Colorado pays for services only after any other coverage you may have pays first. If you have health coverage other than Health First Colorado, you should report that information to us. You can report other health coverage at Colorado.gov/PEAK.

The following types of coverage may be required to pay for your services before Health First Colorado:
