The heart of Colorado Covering Kids and Families (CKF) is our statewide coalition. CKF partners and coalition members commit time and resources to improve access to Colorado's public health insurance program for children and families. CKF Coalition members and staff work to identify improvements in public health insurance programs, represent the needs of families and local communities in the policy process, and support local efforts to enhance outreach and enrollment in Medicaid and Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+).
