Colorado Health Care Resource Book

Health Care & Health Insurance

The Resource Book is intended to serve as a reference guide for information on some of Colorado's major health care issues and programs.  The book is divided into three sections to make it easier for the reader to access information.  The first section provides an overview of the health care system in Colorado, including private health insurance and public health programs.  The second section reviews the budgets and health care responsibilities of key executive branch departments.  The third section provides more detailed program information on public health care programs in Colorado, and is generally organized by population group.  Program summaries in Section III include information on eligibility, costs, and services, and provide contact information for the programs.  Departmental and program budget figures were drawn primarily from the FY 2014-15 appropriations bill (Long Bill) and the Joint Budget Committee Staff's Appropriations Report.  Please note that budget figures have been rounded.  At times, figures do not sum due to rounding.
