The Kaiser Permanente Colorado Bridge Program is designed to help those who are uninsured with no access to other health coverage pay for standard Kaiser Permanente Individuals and Families (KPIF) plan (Kaiser Permanente CO Gold 0/20 plan and the Select CO Gold 0/20 plan). The Colorado Bridge Program also includes the Kaiser Permanente sponsored Medical Financial Assistance program. MFA eliminates out-of-pocket costs for most services provided at Kaiser Permanente medical offices. MFA does NOT cover copayments and coinsurance for all covered plan benefits. Some of the benefits MFA does NOT assist with include but are not limited to hospital inpatient care, dialysis, durable medical equipment and hearing aids.

Under the Colorado Bridge Program, monthly premiums for the KP CO Gold 0/20 plan start at $20 for one person and $60 for a family, based on family size and income (premiums are subject to change). Multiple payment options are available, click here. MFA lowers the cost sharing for services provided at Kaiser Permanente medical offices to $0. For services not provided at Kaiser Permanente medical offices, members are responsible for the full cost sharing under the KP CO 0/20 plan. The coverage period lasts up to 24 months but not beyond December 31 of the calendar year, with an opportunity to renew. If you do not send in your monthly payments, your KP CO Gold 0/20 coverage, including MFA, will end and you will not be eligible to re-apply until the next open enrollment period.
