Welcome To Covering Kids and Families

Who We Are

Colorado Covering Kids and Families (CKF) is a statewide project that works to ensure all children and families eligible for Medicaid and Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) are enrolled. CKF is made up of the CKF Coalition, the CKF Advisory Committee, the Agency Partners Work Group, and the Health Policy Work Group.

What We Know

Families applying for public health insurance coverage face many barriers that keep eligible kids and families from getting and keeping coverage.

What We Do

CKF supports outreach, enrollment, and retention efforts and bridges the gap between community partners, outreach, and enrollment professionals, and health policy decision makers.
