Colorado Services and Supports for People with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities
The state of Colorado has many different programs available to assist people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The cost of most services is covered by a combination of state and federal tax dollars. Colorado Medicaid is publicly funded health insurance for low income families, children, pregnant women, persons with disabilities or who are blind. Colorado Medicaid is often simply referred to as the State Plan. The State Plan covers the cost of basic medical services. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities who qualify can receive Medicaid services regardless of whether or not they also receive other services specific to their developmental disability.
The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) is the state Medicaid agency. For information about Medicaid eligibility and benefits, contact:
