New! – CCHAP Advisory Support Group

This month, CCHAP is holding the first meeting of a workgroup created to identify and develop strategy around emerging challenges practices face in the shifting healthcare landscape. Timely and consistent input from a cross-section of providers and practice managers in the CCHAP network is essential to the design of top-notch support services. The active advisory workgroup will meet quarterly, but input from all practices is needed. All providers and practice managers are encouraged to contribute their suggestions by contacting CCHAP’s workgroup leaders Mindy Craig ( or Marcia Carteret (

Medicaid Professional Billing Training Sessions

November and December 2018 Medicaid Provider Billing Training Sessions

Providers are invited to participate in training sessions for an overview of Health First Colorado billing instructions and procedures.

Staff who submit claims, are new to billing Health First Colorado services or need a billing refresher course should consider attending one or more of the following provider training sessions. The UB-04 and CMS 1500 training sessions provide high-level overviews of claim submission, prior authorizations, navigating the Department’s website, using the Provider Web Portal, and more.

Specialty training sessions provide more training for that particular provider specialty group. Providers are advised to attend a UB-04 or CMS 1500 training session prior to attending a specialty training.

See the November Medicaid Provider Bulletin for a calendar of training sessions and information on both Live Webinar and In-Person Training details.

Invitation to Participate in Adolescent Champion Model

Recruiting has begun for the second cohort of health centers within a two-hour radius of Colorado Springs focusing on the Pikes Peak, Southeast, West Central and Southwest regions of the state to take part in the award-winning Adolescent Champion Model in Colorado, and we hope you’ll consider participating.

The multi-year project is being funded through support from the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing with the goal of improving adolescent health in the state of Colorado The University of Michigan Adolescent Health Initiative is partnering with Dr. Paritosh Kaul, Professor of Pediatrics Section of Adolescent Medicine at University of Colorado and Children’s Hospital, to replicate the model in Colorado.

Since 2013, the evidence-based model has been implemented in over 75 health centers around the country. The model focuses on an Adolescent Champion team as agents of change within a clinic to transform it into an adolescent medical home. The Champion team consists of a provider, a manager, and 1-3 interested staff (such as an MA, social worker, or nurse). The time commitment averages out to 1-4 hours/month over the course of the 18-month intervention, and it offers an exceptional leadership opportunity for the Champions within the clinic. You can read more about the project’s impact here.

Jenni Lane,, Manager at the Adolescent Health Initiative, is happy to speak by phone (734.998.2210) or in person if you have any questions. Please let her know if you’re interested in forming a Champion team. We’ll have our kick-off webinar in January 2019, and the 18-month project will run from January 2019 – June 2020.
