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. Call us at 303.953.5940 or use the tool below to find other assistors near you.

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!

Health Promotions

Our staff can help you educate members in your community on a variety of health topics; don’t hesitate to contact us. We also participate in community events, health fairs, and resource fairs to engage community about the variety of programming at Servicios de La Raza. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for promotion of a variety of events that Servicios will attend.
