The Colorado Legislature passed Senate Bill 23-002 in May 2023, ushering in community health worker (CHW) services as a Health First Colorado benefit starting July 1, 2025. Seeking federal authorization from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) by July 1, 2024, HCPF is dedicated to adding CHW services as a covered benefit. The stakeholder feedback process is underway to gather input on meeting federal requirements for this significant addition.

Exciting news awaits as we share that all slides from the recent webinar series on Medicaid Reimbursement for Community Health Workers (CHWs) are now accessible on the HCPF CHW Webpage. Whether you joined the discussions live or couldn’t make it, these resources provide a recap of the insightful sessions.

Although the formal stakeholder process has wrapped up, they are still looking for valuable feedback until Wednesday, May 1, 2024. Share your thoughts:
