Learn more about the Kaiser Permanente Colorado Bridge Program

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. For more information about the Colorado Bridge Program and what services are covered in the Denver/Boulder, Northern Colorado, Mountain Colorado, and Pueblo service areas, click here.

Cost:

The Colorado Bridge Program provides a subsidy to help pay your monthly premiums and most out-of-pocket medical costs under the Kaiser Permanente CO Gold 0/20 RX Copay plan / CO Select Gold 0/20 RX Copay plan. Medical Financial Assistance 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.
