Ventanilla de Salud (VDS)

Medical Case Management (MCM) is the provision of a range of client-centered activities focused on improving health outcomes in support of the HIV Care Continuum. MCM activities focus on increasing clients’ knowledge of HIV, goal-setting, and maintaining access to medical care, insurance, and medication assistance programs for HIV treatment. Other areas of assistance consist of assisting clients to obtain other resources to a cohesive system of qualified HIV-related providers. The program’s goals are to assist clients to understand and self-manage their physical and emotional health as well as their overall well-being, while minimizing barriers that may negatively affect their ability to adhere to medical care and treatment. Through MCM, clients may be eligible for financial assistance, food bank assistance, and other resources to meet their needs.

Health Insurance Enrollment

Our Enrollment Specialists are certified to assist all community in the insurance enrollment process through Health First Colorado (Medicaid) and the Connect for Health Colorado Marketplace. We can also help connect you with insurance brokers who can assist with Medicare Advantage plans and off the marketplace enrollment.

Health Literacy

Aside from enrollment assistance, our skilled staff can also provide health insurance literacy to help you understand your insurance options and how to utilize them. Having a deep understanding of how to utilize your health benefits also ensures that you seek the correct type of care. As part of our Health Literacy efforts we discuss preventive care, which is medical care to help you stay healthy, as well as the importance of medical homes. We can help you find a medical home that serves you and works with your insurance, or that has a sliding scale.  Guia de Salud coming soon!
