The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (Department) is making changes to Financial Management Services (FMS) for CDASS clients.  EffectiveJanuary 1, 2015, CDASS clients will have a choice between three FMS vendors and two employer models: Agency with Choice (AwC) and Fiscal/Employer Agent (F/EA).

Additionally, the Department will contract with a CDASS Training and Operations vendor to provide training and customer service support for participant-directed service delivery models available within Colorado. The Department anticipates the Training and Operations vendor to be selected by November 1, at which point more information will be released.


The three FMS contractors are as follows:

ACES$ Financial Management Services:


Morning Star Financial Services

Public Partnerships, LLC

CDASS Clients wanting information about health insurance options and ACA requirements can contact any of the FMS organizations:
