Doctors Care is committed to opportunities presented by the Affordable Care Act, while continuing to respond to the needs of the underserved. Doctors Care offers 4 Core Services to meet those needs in the best ways possible.
Provides quality, affordable sick and well-care visits for children and young adults up to age 50 who may be seen by a physician assistant, nurse practitioner or volunteer physician. The clinic provides needed well and sick-care, immunizations, mental health services and age-appropriate developmental screens. A behavioral health counselor is available for counseling appointments. Doctors Care also offers an on-site Dental Hygienist for oral hygiene exams and education, cleanings, x-rays, scaling & root planning, sealants, and fluoride treatments.
Helps individuals apply for Medicaid and subsidized insurance plans through the Connect for Health Colorado online marketplace. Doctors Care Certified Health Coverage Guide volunteers provide free, one-on-one assistance to help individuals understand their insurance options and apply for Medicaid, tax-credits for private plans, or obtain other financial assistance in getting coverage. Doctors Care is a Connect for Health Colorado Assistance Site and a Certified Medicaid Application Assistance Site.
Services help individuals overcome barriers to accessing health care and solve problems that may be preventing them from living a healthy lifestyle. Health Navigators, all of whom are volunteers trained and supported by program staff, help patients understand their insurance coverage, get connected to social services, and become more self-sufficient in managing their own health care needs.
