The State Health Insurance Assistance Program, within the Colorado Division of Insurance, helps people eligible for or enrolled in Medicare with questions about health insurance.

The program has counselors working through regional organizations around the state to provide: individual counseling and assistance; public education presentations about Medicare, related health insurance, and Medicare fraud; and distribution of printed materials about these health insurances.

Starting July 2013, Medicare is making changes to who can provide supplies to some Medicare consumers.  The durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) competitive bid program will expand to include consumers who live in the Aurora, Broomfield, Colorado Springs, or Denver area, OR use diabetic supplies.
