Payment

HRRMC Psychiatry Services collects co-pays and deductibles at the time of service. As a primary care clinic at the HRRMC Outpatient Pavilion and HRRMC Buena Vista Health Center, it is our policy to provide essential services regardless of a patient's ability to pay. Our office participates in Medicare and Health First Colorado (Colorado Medicaid) and is also a National Health Service Corps (NHSC) site.

As an NHSC site, HRRMC Psychiatry Services has a sliding-fee payment scale for self-pay and uninsured patients based on income and family size. The scale provides discounts to patients with incomes up to 250 percent of poverty level.

Our office also offers a 15 percent discount to self-pay and uninsured patients whose income is too high to qualify for the NHSC sliding-fee schedule and whose accounts are paid at the time of service.
