 free health services panorama downtown Denver filing for Colorado disability


Colorado’s free and low cost health services are available to you. Listed below you will find health care resources throughout Denver and Colorado State. All of the clinics and community health centers on this list explain whether or not they will accept a payment plan on their website. You can also contact them directly.

Additionally, some clinics provide services on a sliding fee scale. Other clinics are free. Contact the clinics or health resources directly to find out. They can explain their payment options.

If you want to win your Social Security Disability case, you need medical evidence. Therefore, you must see a doctor. Doctor’s progress notes, tests, and medical opinions are the evidence for your Social Security case. The SSA will only accept medical evidence from doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists. For example, for physical problems, you might need to see an orthopedist.

However, for mental problems, you need to visit a psychologist or psychiatrist. You will also need to have ongoing treatment with them. It is also smart to see a counselor on a weekly basis for talk therapy. Once you see a doctor over a period of months or years, then you have a relationship with that doctor. As a result, they can support your claim for SSDI and SSI benefits.


The SSA realizes most people get treatment from other workers in the medical field who are employed by the doctor. For example, most doctors employ a P.A. or Physician’s Assistant.  Likewise, you might see a Nurse Practitioner. That person takes your vitals and talks to you about your medical history. Additionally, they may give you medications or treat you for chronic pain.

For example, you may have a back condition and visit with your doctor on the first visit. However, after that, you might go to physical therapy or have weekly visits with a nurse. Because patients see many treating sources, the SSA now accepts medical opinions from them. However, they do not carry the same weight as a medical opinion from your doctor.


Below please find a list of Colorado’s free and low cost health services. These places often offer free health care if you do not have the ability to pay. You must go to the doctor. Because, you need medical evidence to prove your mental or physical condition when you file your application for Colorado SSDI and SSI benefits.

The clinics offer walk-in appointments. They also offer treatment for ongoing physical issues. You can obtain dental care, shots, vision care and other treatment by calling the clinics near you. As a result of seeking medical care, you have a much better chance of winning your  case.

In Colorado, there are many mental health clinics and treatment options. If you need help with severe mental illness, you should contact one of them. These clinics offer mental treatment and patient care. They also offer ongoing mental health care outside of the hospital.

When individuals with mental illness are suicidal or in need of a hospital stay, these are the resources that you need to contact. While these clinics may not be free, they will often accept Medicaid and Medicare benefits. Learn about Medicaid benefits here.

Additionally, they usually work with your insurance to get you the mental health treatment you need. If you do not have insurance, you should still call them if you need acute mental care.


Colorado Community mental health centers (CMHCs) do not have strict entrance rules. For instance, any Colorado citizen who has a mental health condition can receive treatment at a CMHC.

If you’re not finding the care you need through the public system, you can search for free or low cost counselors on Additionally, you can try online therapy at BetterHelp. The help you need may be just a call away.

The best way to find out about your Colorado community mental health center is to call the program directly. If you are not sure which CMHC serves your city or county. Or, if you are are in crisis or have other questions, then you should call the state mental health crisis and information line at (844) 493-8255.

The crisis line is staffed 24 hours a day, every day of the year. If you explain that you need a referral to a community mental health program, the counselor who answers can help you find the right program for you to contact.

Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) are another option for mental health care in Colorado. These federal programs provide mental health services to people who cannot afford care. Their goal is to deliver health care to people who need mental treatment.

Each FQHC accepts Medicaid and Medicare. Also, they offer sliding scale fees to people without insurance. You can search for FQHCs using the online search tool on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website.


At Cannon Disability, we know how hard it is to get medical care when you don’t have health insurance. It is our goal to help our clients by giving you a list of free and low cost resources. We also know you don’t have a job right now. However, there are some doctors who will accept cash as payment. Likewise, some are free.

If you do not have health insurance you can apply for Medicaid. Find out about  Medicaid benefits information here. If you obtain Medicaid, then it will cover your doctor visits. You can also call the above list of mental and physical resources to see if they will treat you. If not, you could ask if they will accept a payment plan or cash payments.

Going to the doctor, following the treatment and getting the records for the SSA, is the only way to win your SSD case. Letters written by your family or friends are not medical evidence. However, progress notes showing monthly visits to the doctor are evidence of medical treatment.

For example, the medical evidence you need includes X-rays, MRI’s, CT scans and IQ tests. A note from your mother is not medical evidence. Without evidence, you cannot win your Social Security Disability or SSI case. If you win SSD benefits, then you also win Medicare benefits. Find out more about Medicare benefits in this article.

Additionally, if you need help getting your medical records, then please contact us today. Likewise, if you need Colorado’s free health services and need more information, call us. We can help.


We know you need the best SSD attorney in Colorado to represent you. At our law firm, we are experts in winning SSD and SSI benefits. For example, in the last 30 years, we have won over 20,000 benefit cases for our clients. If you need help filing for benefits in Colorado, then contact our law firm. We can also help you appeal a denial from the SSA.

If you contact our office for help with your application, then make sure you have some basic facts ready.  For instance, we will need to know your the day you were born and your Social Security number. We will also need to know your wedding date and divorce date. Likewise, we will need to know the date you last worked. Also, we will need to know the name, address, and phone number of your doctors.

For instance, the SSA application asks basic information about your family and your children. Likewise, you will need to tell us your work history. Also, you will need to describe what job you did at each place you have worked in the last 15 years. The SSA needs to know this information in order to process your application.


Cannon Disability offers a free review of your case and we do this for anyone who lives in Colorado. But, what does “free” mean?

For instance, if you want to become our client, then it means we will talk to you over the phone about your SSD case. We will examine the merits of your case. Also, we will answer questions about Colorado SSD and SSI benefits. Most lawyers do charge an attorney fee to review your case. We do not.

Please understand, however, that giving you a free review of your case is not the same thing as becoming your attorney. We consider the merits of your case. But, we can only do so based upon the facts you give us. If you don’t give us all the facts, then we have to make a decision about the merits of your case anyway.

Sometimes, we will request that you send us medical records or a copy of your SSA paperwork. We do this so we can understand the details of your case. Even if we ask for more information, it does not mean we are your attorney.

You will know if you hire our legal team because we will send you our contract. We will also send you other SSA paperwork to fill out. This paperwork must be returned to us immediately.

If you do not sign and send the paperwork back, then you are not our client. You can’t be our client until we receive your paperwork and we send it into the SSA. We will send you a stamped envelope to send the paperwork back to us.


You do not need to file for Colorado SSD benefits on your own. Our law firm can help file your SSD application. Also, we can help you file an appeal after every SSA denial. That way, you can focus on your health and living your best life. For example, our attorneys and staff can:

  • Send you the paperwork you need to become our client
  • Help you file your application for SSD and SSI benefits
  • Request an appeal if you receive an initial denial from DDS
  • Help you confirm your Consultative Exam
  • Request a Hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ)
  • Prepare you to be a good witness at your SSA hearing
  • Represent you at your hearing and question the expert witnesses
  • Read more about the job expert here
  • Learn more about the medical expert here
  • Request review of an SSA decision with the Appeals Council
  • Request review of an Appeals Council denial in Federal Court

If you file your application for SSD benefits online at Social Security’s website, then you have 6 months to complete the application. Once you submit your application online, the SSA sends you an application summary in the mail. You must sign the summary and mail it back quickly.
