Kaiser to Step Back from Providing Medicaid Services to Some Colorado Areas

Kaiser Permanente Colorado has announced that it no longer provides Medicaid services to several areas along the front range in Colorado.  The decision impacts close to 2,500 current Kaiser Medicaid patients.

The stoppage began as of the first of July and mainly affects patients in Colorado Springs, Frisco, Fort Collins, Loveland and Pueblo.  Services to Medicaid patients in Boulder and Denver will not change.  The State is responsible for reassigning individuals to new Medicaid providers  and communicating that change to each recipient, according to a Kaiser Permanente statement.
