Important Information for Patients

The situation regarding COVID-19 continues to evolve. Therefore, we are making a few changes to our scheduling process and our services to keep our patients, community and healthcare staff healthy. Our main phone lines and patient portal are open for your questions. Here's what to expect:

When you call the clinic for an appointment, we will ask you questions about the nature of your visit to determine the best care for you. We may also give you the option of a telehealth visit. For all scheduled appointments, patients will be greeted outside the front door of our main clinic. Our greeter will ask you questions and then give you further directions. We ask that only essential family members accompany a patient. Also, if you are a current patient, you may reach out to us via the patient portal.

At this time, we are only accepting dental emergency appointments. For our behavioral health services, we are modifying our visits to provide telehealth visits. Our School Based Health Centers will be closed until further notice.

For current information on COVID-19 visit the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment website, Summit County Government website, and 211Colorado.org.

La situación con respecto a COVID-19 continúa evolucionando. Por lo tanto, estamos realizando algunos cambios en nuestro proceso de programación y nuestros servicios para mantener saludables a nuestros pacientes, la comunidad y los trabajadores de la salud. Nuestros teléfonos y portal para pacientes están abiertos para preguntas. Esto es lo que puede esperar:

Cuando llame a la clínica para hacer una cita, le haremos preguntas sobre la naturaleza de su visita para determinar la mejor atención para usted. También podemos darle la opción de una visita de telesalud(videcall) con un proveedor. Para todas las citas programadas, los pacientes serán recibidos fuera de la puerta principal de nuestra clínica principal. Nuestro interlocutor le hará preguntas y luego le dará más instrucciones. Pedimos que solo los miembros esenciales de la familia acompañen a un paciente. Además, si usted es un paciente actual, puede comunicarse con su proveedor a través de nuestro portal para pacientes.

En este momento, solo aceptamos citas de emergencia dental. Para nuestros servicios de salud del comportamiento, estamos modificando nuestras visitas para proporcionar visitas de telesalud. Nuestros centros de salud escolares estarán cerrados hasta nuevo aviso.

¡Le agradecemos sinceramente su paciencia y comprensión durante este tiempo y queremos asegurarle que estamos dedicados a mantener saludables a nuestros pacientes, proveedores de atención médica y comunidad!

How to Become a Patient

To become a patient, complete a registration packet and bring it with you to your first appointment. Please come to your first appointment 15 minutes early to give us time to review the form and to help you fill in any missing information.

Payment options:

 

UNINSURED

In order to qualify for a Care Card to receive discounted services, you will need to fill in additional forms and go through a screening process. We recommend that you complete the process below before you need services because the process takes time.

1. Call 970-668-4040. Tell them you are a new patient and make an appointment with an Eligibility Coordinator

2. Complete forms

a. New patient will need to complete a Registration Packet

b. Care Card Application

c. If you are self-employed – Self Employment Worksheet

3. Come to your eligibility appointment with completed forms – arrive 15 minutes before your appointment. Call if you have questions about the required documentation.

970-668-6681

If you are very ill and need an appointment but have not gone through this process or received your Care Card, let the front desk know. Every attempt will be made to work with you to make sure you get the care you need.

During the Care Card process, we will review your income and family size and, if you are eligible, place you on the Sliding Fee Scale. Fees are accrued based on the care you receive. We can only give you estimates of the costs. You will need to pay your entire bill at the end of each visit, but we will work with you on a payment plan as needed.

SLIDING SCALE FEE CODES

 

MEDICAID, CHP+, MEDICARE

When you make an appointment, let us know that you have Medicaid, CHP+ or Medicare. Bring your cards with you to your appointment.

 

INSURANCE

We are in-network with many carriers. However, you should also check with your insurance to confirm that we are an in-network provider.  At the time of service, you will need to pay your copay. We submit your claims to your insurance company for the care you receive.

If you do not have dental insurance and have a current Care Card, you will be charged according to the Sliding Fee Scale.

This program provides access to dental care to individuals age 60 and over who are not eligible for dental services under any other dental health care program, such as Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program). Our eligibility staff will screen you for eligibility for this program.  As funds for this program are limited, eligibility does not guarantee coverage.
