Welcome to CoveredHQ, a one-stop-shop where health coverage guides and other stakeholders can find resources on health insurance literacy!

Resources are organized based on when to use them with consumers — when they’re uninsured, applying for coverage, shopping for coverage, using coverage, at tax time, or renewing coverage. CoveredHQ is operated by the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative (CCHI). These initial materials have been sent to CCHI by various enrollment stakeholders, but more will be added. Posting of materials does not indicate an endorsement. To help make CoveredHQ more comprehensive, please email additional materials to Adam Fox at afox@cohealthinitiative.org.
