Who Qualifies for Medicare in Colorado?

Medicare covers most Colorado residents who are age 65 or older, and it also covers disabled Colorado residents. In general, Medicare enrollment in Colorado works the same way as it does in the rest of the country. If you qualify, Original Medicare Part A and Part B will help cover your health costs.

Once you have Medicare eligibility, you can begin choosing a new health plan through a Medicare Advantage Plan, Medigap plan, and/or a Medicare Part D drug plan.
