Program DescriptionMedicaid is a program that pays for health insurance for some Coloradans who can not afford it. When state and Federal eligibility criteria are met, Medicaid covers families with children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities. People who are not U.S. citizens can only get Medicaid to pay a life threatening medical emergency. The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing administers the Medicaid program.
