CAN I SEE A PROVIDER TODAY?
For injuries or sudden illness, we will make every effort to see you right away. However, we ask that you make advance appointments for things like routine check-ups, immunizations and chronic health conditions. To make an appointment, please call us at 970-945-2840.
WHAT IF I HAVE NO INSURANCE?
- Based on your income and family size, you may qualify for discounts.
- You can make payments over time, in which case you will be expected to provide a $60.00 down payment toward your bill.
- We can help you apply for insurance.
HOW DO I QUALIFY FOR DISCOUNTED SERVICES?
If you do not need to see a provider today, we can schedule an appointment soon to see if you qualify for the Colorado Indigent Care Program (CICP), which is a state program to help pay medical expenses for low-income adults. It helps keep your co-pays low — usually between $15.00 and $40.00 — and it can pay as much as three months of prior bills as well. For children and pregnant women, we also access Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid) and Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+). You must must bring:
- At least one pay stub from the month before you apply
- Your original birth certificate
- Your Social Security card
- Any school IDs, if you have them
VERY IMPORTANT – these must be original documents and cannot be copies.
You may also qualify for discounts on medicines from our in-house pharmacy.
It is very worthwhile to see if you qualify for any of these programs. Please contact our Enrollment Specialists at 970-945-2840 to set up an appointment and obtain applications.
WHAT IF I AM UNABLE TO PAY TODAY?
At the time of your service we ask that you pay your insurance copay, or your prearranged discounted fee, or a $60.00 down payment towards a payment plan. If you qualify, we also have a 30-day “Self Declare” program to limit your payments for acute care (for things like injuries and sudden sickness; not routine visits or immunizations). Of course, we will always see you for acute care, no matter your ability to pay.
DO YOU TAKE CREDIT CARDS?
We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover Card and debit cards. We also take personal checks, money orders, traveler’s checks, and cash (only in person, at health centers).
WHAT INSURANCE PLANS DO YOU TAKE?
We welcome Medicare and Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid) patients as well as insurance from Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Colorado Employment Benefit Trust (CEBT), Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), Cigna, Choice Care-Humana, MMA, Private Healthcare Systems (PHCS), Regional Care Incorporated (RCI), Rocky Mountain Health Plans (RMHMO), TriWest/TRICARE and UnitedHealth Group.

HOW CAN HISPANIC PEOPLE PARTICIPATE HERE?
Mountain Family Health Centers was recently recognized as a Hispanic Advocacy Center of Excellence, a new iteration of NACHC’s Advocacy Center of Excellence (ACE). This is an initiative to institutionalize grassroots advocacy at health centers by engaging Hispanic patients and community members in advocacy, giving them a role in the health center movement.
Our goal is to be inclusive of all cultures and demographics. Being designated as a HACE is a testament to our efforts to provide educational materials in both English and Spanish to ensure our message reaches as many of our patients as possible.
