Marshall R. Thomas, M.D. President and Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer said "We are very excited to have been awarded this contract which fits very well with our core mission and established competencies."
He added, "We look forward to working collaboratively with providers and Health Care Policy and Financing to further improve the state-wide system of care for children and pregnant women enrolled in Colorado’s CHP+ Program."
The Administrative Services Contract with the Department will be in addition to Colorado Access’ existing CHP+ HMO line of business, which currently serves over 27,000 members.
"Though the Administrative Services Contract is distinct from our existing CHP+ HMO contract, we believe that our prior experience serving this population will help to ensure a smooth transition and a high level of service for members and providers in the State CHP+ network." said Dr. Thomas.
