Financial Assistance & Enrolling as a Patient
Clinica Family Health is here to provide the care you and your family needs. No matter your ability to pay. That’s because we are a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). We accept most insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, CHP+ and the Colorado Indigent Care Program (CICP). Clinica Family Health will help you apply for sate and federal financial assistance programs to help pay for your health care. We also offer our own discount program based on income and family sizefor those who do not have other coverage options. Because your financial situation can change, we require patients to update their financial assistance eligibility every year.
Due to COVID-19, our enrollment specialists are only able to do phone screenings. If you would like to make an in-person appointment, please check back with us soon. We will update information on our web site when we can schedule in-person appointments again. In the mean time, you can apply for Health First Colorado (Medicaid) or the Children’s Health Plan online. Click here to be connected to the Health First Colorado web site.
