What is the Health First Colorado Accountable Care Collaborative (ACC) Program?

The ACC program is one of the health plans offered by Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid Program). This program was created to increase access to quality health care and services that will help improve your overall well-being. You have a whole team that works together to guide you through the health care system. They also make sure you get connected to the right services for your unique needs. This includes physical, dental, and behavioral health care, as well as resources such as food, housing, transportation, and child care.
