Colorado’s Medicaid program works much like regular insurance. If you qualify for this program you’ll receive a card to present at doctor appointments. The participating doctors will then let the state know, and the state will pay the bill. The program pays for many servicers including any in- or outpatient hospital care, lab services, nursing home care, home health care, transportation needed for medical care like ambulance rides, and other services.
