Contractors Health Trust Logo


Contractors Health Trust (CHT) was established in 1968 for the sole purpose of providing a health benefit plan to cover eligible employees of participating employers. The Plan is available exclusively to employers who are members of the Colorado Contractors Association, the Associated General Contractors of Colorado and the Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs.*

The Contractors Health Trust offers comprehensive benefit programs that include medical, dental, hearing, vision, life, and accidental death & dismemberment benefits.

The CHT benefit programs are specifically customized to meet the unique demands of the construction industry. Contractors Health Trust was created for contractors, designed by contractors and managed by contractors. 

CHT continues to manage renewal rates at well below many reported healthcare cost increase trends over the past several years!

* To be eligible, employers must be in the residential or commercial construction industry and have at least two full-time employees covered under the plan. Coverage is subject to an underwriting process.
