Primary Care Providers: Access Data & Resources to Help You Care for Health First Colorado Members

We have created the CCHA Provider Portal to support contracted primary care/physical health provider practices with serving our Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid Program) members. The portal provides a secure, consistent method for CCHA to share data and resources with providers and practice staff, as applicable. We are exploring the option to expand the portal to behavioral health providers in the future.

CCHA Provider Portal Access Levels

The CCHA Provider Portal gives practices the flexibility and authority to determine which individuals at their practice should have access and what information they can access. There are four access levels based on the type of information a user will see. View an at-a-glance comparison of all access levels. The following provides a more detailed overview of each level.

All access levels other than Basic will require two-factor authentication as an additional layer of security to view protected health information or financial data and perform certain functions.

This level of access is available to no more than two individuals at a legal entity. Master users are responsible for delegating and maintaining access for other users in their practice. This includes deciding who should have access and the level of access for each authorized user. This also includes changing and terminating access as needed. In addition to user management functions, master users have access to all other levels of information.  

Who can have this level of access?

  • Staff who work directly with CCHA financials and know the information needs of practice staff
  • Requires two-factor authentication for added security

What can users at this level access?

  • Practice reports, financial reports, electronic forms, CCHA contact information, patient education materials

Users with this level of access will have the ability to see financial reports for their entire legal entity, including each location of a legal entity. It is important to keep in mind that this level of access is at the legal entity level, not individual to each practice location.
