You can apply for or manage your assistance benefits case online at Colorado PEAK; an office visit is usually not needed. Starting an account online is the fastest way to apply for assistance programs
Here are ways to keep your information safe on the internet:
- CO.gov/PEAK is a secure site. The URL will start with “https” or show a lock symbol
- The official website has the Colorado PEAK logo, State of Colorado logo or program logos (like Health First Colorado) on its websites and apps
- You NEVER have to pay to apply, update your account or ask questions about benefits
- You should only share their personal information with county office workers, PEAK community partners and through the official PEAK website
The free MyCoBenefits app is available through the Apple and Android app stores. PEAKHealth is a free app for current Medicaid and CHP+ members who have a Colorado.gov/PEAK account.
All three WIC clinics (Public Health) are providing services for clients via phone including new intake appointments. Please call 719-578-3199, Option 6.
