Provider Technology Help Desk

For general information and questions about our data modernization projects, email cdhs_bha_provider_support@state.co.us. Reminder: Do not send personal health information (PHI) through unencrypted email. The help desk is available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Ongoing feedback for the system or supporting processes can be submitted via this feedback form. The BHA team will monitor feedback to inform future improvements to the system. 

The Asana feedback form was created as a way to capture and collect feedback in regard to the Central Registry. It is also now our primary ticketing system to track our processes and feedback for continual improvement.  

The Help Desk will be reviewing, organizing, responding to, and communicating with our Development team about feedback/tickets received. The feedback and tickets we receive play a critical role in identifying areas of the platform that may need improvement.

Research and Project Plans


Universal Contracting Provisions

Universal Contracting Provisions (UCPs) are requirements that every behavioral health contract for a particular service must contain, regardless of who the contracting parties are, or how many contracts for services exist. UCPs are incredibly helpful in ensuring that minimum standards, resources, and obligations are uniform, consistent, and fair across service providers within the new state care continuum, and that every person in Colorado will be able to access behavioral health care that is meaningful and trusted.

The BHA is holding space for co-creation of universal contracting provisions before July 1, 2023. These provisions are important in order to properly contract for behavioral health services and set standards for the industry that work for all parties.
