Health Care Services for Uninsured - Denver, CO
Health Care Services for Uninsured and underinsured patients in Colorado are provided by the Metro Community Provider Network (MCPN) through its eleven health centers around the Denver metro area. The Network is a non-profit organization offering medical, dental, mental health, substance abuse, and pharmacy services to patients. It also provides community based services, including case management, outreach to the homeless, adolescent services, health education and maternal child health to those in need of assistance.
In addition to health care services for uninsured and underinsured patients, the network of health centers extends to working families who cannot afford this type of health care. All patients are asked to participate in supporting their health care by paying for services on a sliding scale. However, no families or patients are refused services because they cannot afford to pay. Clinic staffs help those in need to apply for aid from medical programs like Medicaid, Colorado Indigent Care Program (CICP) and Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+). Although the network clinics accept all private insurance plans as well as Medicaid, Colorado Child Health Plan Plus, Medicare and the Colorado Indigent Care Program.
Clinics are located throughout the metropolitan Denver area, serving the community of Arapahoe, Jefferson, Douglas and Adams counties and the Cities of Aurora, Lakewood, Edgewater, Englewood, Littleton, Centennial, Bailey, Arvada and Wheat Ridge, Colorado.
Individuals and families interested in becoming patients should contact the MCPN Customer Care Call Center at (303) 360-MCPN (6276). The call center is available Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm.
In providing health care services for uninsured and underinsured patients, all of the MCPN clinics together provide for the most medically underserved individuals in the state with one of the largest population bases of any Community Health Center in Colorado.
MCPN was established in 1989, as a response to a shortage of primary care for the uninsured in the Denver metro area. The organization, its clinics and staff are committed to providing quality health care services and education to the medically underserved members of the community in a professional and respectful environment.
