OAP provides financial assistance up to $841 per month. Any other income, such as Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income, Veteran’s Assistance, etc. may reduce the amount of OAP benefits.
Medical assistance may be available to OAP recipients, and is provided through two different programs. Colorado’s OAP Health Care Program benefits may be available to residents ages 60 to 64, while Medicaid may be available for persons 65 or older.
In Colorado, OAP financial benefits are accessed through a Quest Card, which works like a debit card at a grocery store checkout counter or ATM and is kept secure with a private pin number.
