Colorado Health Centers to Provide Enrollment Assistance

Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today announced $150 million in grant awards to 1,159 health centers across the nation to enroll uninsured Americans in new health coverage options made available by the Affordable Care Act.

HHS Secretary Sebelius said, “Investing in health centers means that people in neighborhoods and towns across the country have one more resource to help them understand their insurance options and enroll in affordable coverage.” Health centers have a long history of providing eligibility assistance to patients along with delivering high-quality, primary health care services in communities across the nation. With these awards, consumers will get help understanding their coverage options through the new Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program; determine their eligibility and what financial help they can get; and enroll in new affordable health coverage options.

Clinica Campesina in Lafayette
Colorado Coalition for the Homeless in Denver
Denver Health and Hospital Authority in Denver
Dolores County Health Association in Dove Creek
High Plains Community Health Center in Lamar
