File a Complaint About Access to Behavioral Health Care

Your health plan is subject to the Mental Health Parity Addiction Equity Act of 2008. This means that your covered behavioral health benefits cannot be more difficult to access than physical health benefits. A denial, restriction, or withholding of behavioral health services could be a potential violation of the parity act. File a complaint with the Behavioral Health Ombudsman Office of Colorado if you have a parity concern.

Behavioral Health Ombudsman Office of Colorado
Call: 303-866-2789

A representative of the Ombudsman Office will call or reply to you directly. You can also ask your behavioral health provider or guardian/legal representative to file a complaint for you.

Member Frequently Asked Questions

What benefits does Colorado Access cover?

For CHP+ State Managed Care Network and CHP+ offered by Colorado Access, we administer medical, behavioral, and vision benefits. The benefits are listed in the Members Benefits Handbook (for members of CHP+ State Managed Care Network) and the Members Benefits Handbook (for members of CHP+ offered by Colorado Access).

Do I have to pay a copay?

For some services, you may have a copay. A copay is a fixed amount you pay when you get a covered health care service. The copay amount depends on the service. You may have to pay a small copay to receive some services, unless you fall into of the following categories:

  • If you are age 18 and younger and pregnant (and up to six weeks after delivery) or are an American Indian or Alaska Native, you do not pay copays.
  • If you are a qualifying former foster care youth (age 18 through 26), you only pay copays for prescription drugs.
  • If you reside in a nursing facility, you typically do not have to pay copays.

See the Health First Colorado Benefits & Services Overview for the list of copays per service.
