Grievance and Appeal Process
You have the right to file a grievance (complaint) about the services you are receiving and to appeal a denial or reduction of service.
It is the policy of Colorado Health Partnerships not to discriminate on the basis of a disability. CHP has a grievance process to provide fast and fair resolution of complaints.
Any Member who believes she or he has been subjected to discrimination on the basis of a disability may file a grievance under this process. It is against the law for CHP to get back at anyone who files a grievance or helps in the inquiry of a grievance.
CHP will make arrangements to ensure that disabled persons have other accommodations, if needed, to participate in this grievance process. Such arrangements may include, but are not limited to, providing interpreters for the deaf, providing taped cassettes of material for the blind, or assuring a barrier-free location for the proceedings. The Section 504 Coordinator will be responsible for such arrangements. To reach this coordinator please call the Office of Member and Family Affairs at 1-800-804-5040, ext 361483.

In the United States, one in five children/youth have a mental health diagnosis. If a mental health disorder is not diagnosed or treated early, children and youth can develop problems at home, in school, or with forming friendships. Mental health disorders among children are described as serious changes in the ways children typically learn, behave, or handle their emotions.
Childhood mental disorders can be treated and managed. There are many evidence-based treatment options available for your children. CHP encourages parents and guardians to work closely with everyone involved in your child's treatment. This could include your primary care physician (PCP), teachers, coaches, therapists, or other family members. Taking advantage of all the resources available will help you guide your child towards success. Early diagnosis and the right services for children and their families can make a difference in the lives of children impacted by a mental health disorder.
There has been much research on the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) on physical and behavioral health issues. These experiences may be related to abuse, neglect, or parents divorcing. Childhood experiences, both positive and negative are strongly related to the development and prevalence of a wide range of health problems throughout a person’s lifespan.
CHP recommends that providers use a trauma informed approach when treating a child or youth. Providers need to recognize the impact of traumatic experiences in their treatment practices.
There is hope. CHP believes that children/youth and families are resilient. Resilience is the ability to deal with life’s challenges in a positive and productive manner. Resilience is key to success in coping with medical problems, school, and important life events. Adults play a key role in helping children become more resilient. Psychological resilience is defined as an individual's ability to successfully adapt to life tasks in the face of social disadvantage or highly adverse conditions.
