Our CAP Team has created a self-help resource guide for consumers. Take a look for yourself and see if your question is answered!

Having Issues With Your Health Care?

Do you have any questions or issues with your current health care coverage?

CCHI has created guides and information below to provide consumers with the best contacts and resources to help them resolve any issue. Use the search feature to find the guide you’re looking for!

Colonoscopies: Preventative vs. DiagnosticThis guide explains what types of colonoscopies are covered under preventative services and what are not considered preventative colonoscopies. Colonoscopies are used to identify colorectal cancers and other intestinal issues.
Credit Reports and Medical DebtCredit reports can no longer include information about medical debt (HB23-1126) in Colorado. This new law protects Coloradans from credit harm by keeping medical debt information off their credit reports. Visit the link to find resources for people with medical debt.

Private Health InsuranceIf you’re running into problems with your insurance and coverage under your plan, you should first directly contact your health insurance company to attempt to resolve the issue. If the issue is not resolved, contact Colorado’s Department of Insurance (DOI). They can answer questions about your health insurer, policy, billing practices, and your rights and protections.
Submitting a Complaint to Co Division of InsuranceThe Division can investigate complaints, help you understand your insurance, and answer your questions. When you submit a complaint to the DOI, they communicate directly with your insurance carrier with regulatory and disciplinary actions to enforce our health insurance laws.
