Are You New to CHP+?

If you’re new to CHP+, then you’re likely a member of the CHP+ State Managed Care Network. If you’re pregnant and don’t qualify for Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program), you might qualify for the CHP+ State Managed Care Network.

What is the SMCN?

The Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) State Managed Care Network (SMCN) covers CHP+ members before they are enrolled in a CHP+ health plan. It also covers pregnant women who are older than age 19 and qualify. If you live in a county where CHP+ health plans don’t offer coverage, you might also be a part of CHP+ SMCN. The SMCN has more than 8,000 providers in Colorado.
