About EBNE Reports
The Colorado Health Institute conducts an annual estimate of the number of adults and children who are eligible for but not enrolled (EBNE) in the Medicaid or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) public insurance program.
This is an important yearly measure of efforts across Colorado by state government as well as advocacy organizations to ensure that Colorado's most vulnerable have the benefit of health insurance and better access to medical care.
