Two Opportunities to Learn About the CO Legislation:
Join the discussion about the road to pass the legislation on July 10, 12pMT and then an implementation discussion on July 11, 12pMT. These webinars are open to Colorado and national partners.
SB23-002, Medicaid Reimbursement For Community Health Services, was signed into law by Governor Polis on May 10. SB23-002 sets up a process to enable some of the services provided by Community Health Workers, like health education, health navigation, and referral to community-based resources, to be reimbursed by Medicaid.

Colorado’s Health Care Policy and Finance (HCPF), the state Medicaid department, will conduct a stakeholder process to finalize what will be included in the State Plan Amendment (SPA), which is the federal authority needed from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid for state Medicaid to start reimbursement of these important services. Read more about the bill in the press release and Colorado Sun Article.
Join either or both discussions hosted by the Alliance of Community Health Workers, Patient Navigators and Promotores de Salud with the Children’s Hospital CO Governmental Affairs team. We will review the legislation, next steps in the implementation process, and advocacy moving forward.
