Peak Health Alliance brings affordable health care insurance coverage and increased access to medical services to nine Colorado counties—Archuleta, Dolores, Grand, Lake, LaPlata, Montezuma, Park, San Juan, and Summit. Peak’s partner is Elevate Health Plans by Denver Health Medical Plan, a not-for-profit company with a strong legacy of providing quality and affordable health coverage for a quarter of a century.

Elevate Health Plans will offer the most budget-friendly Colorado Option health insurance plans in the nine counties served for the 2024 plan year, based on comparisons of rates for all carriers released Monday, Oct. 23 by the Colorado Division of Insurance.

Peak Health Alliance has assembled a robust network of local medical health professionals that will accept Elevate Health Plans and meet local healthcare needs including routine and specialty care. Healthcare needs may also be provided through an extensive statewide network.

The network includes many mental health providers who will provide services with zero to low copays. These dedicated local providers have stepped up to care for their neighbors in a collaborative spirit.

Elevate Health Plans are compliant with the Affordable Care Act and use the Colorado Option enhanced benefit plan design.

Because both Peak Health Alliance and Elevate Health Plans are not-for-profit organizations, they do not have private shareholders and can focus on their missions.

Elevate Health Plan features include:

  • $0 preventative care services
  • $0 to low-cost primary care visits
  • $0 to low-cost mental health outpatient visits
  • Local in-network providers, including specialists, primary care doctors, and mental health providers.

Peak Health Alliance was formed in 2019 in Summit County when that county had some of the most expensive health premiums in the country. Membership in Peak Health Alliance is $7 per member per month. The membership fee embedded in the budget-friendly health care premiums.

In the first three years of operations, Peak Health Alliance saved community members in eight rural mountain counties more than $16.1 million
