Colorado’s free and low cost health services are available to you. Listed below you will find healthcare 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 healthcare 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 disability case. The SSA will only accept medical evidence from physicians, psychologist and psychiatrists. For example, for physical problems, you might need to see an orthopedist, an internist, or a neurologist.

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


The SSA realizes most people get treatment from other providers at the doctor’s office. For example, most doctors employ a P.A. or Physician’s Assistant.  Likewise, you might see a Nurse Practitioner. That person takes your vitals or discusses your medical history. Additionally, they may prescribe your medications or treat you for chronic pain.

For example, you may have a back impairment and visit with your doctor on the first visit. However, after that, you might go to physical therapy or weekly visits with the physician’s assistant. Because patient’s see many providers, the SSA now accepts medical opinions from those providers. They are known as secondary sources of medical information.


Below please find a list of Colorado’s free and low cost healthcare 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 disability when you file your application for Colorado disability benefits.

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

In Colorado, there are many psychiatric facilities. If you need help with severe mental illness, you should contact one of them. These facilities offer psychiatric treatment and inpatient care. They also offer ongoing outpatient mental health care.

When individuals with mental illness are suicidal or in need of hospitalization, these are the resources that you need to contact. While these facilities may not be free, they will often work with 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 eligibility requirements. For instance, any Colorado citizen who has a mental health condition is eligible to 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 affordable online counseling 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 are interested in a referral to a community mental health program, the counselor who answers can help you find the right program to contact.


Community Mental Health Programs


Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) are another option for mental health care in Colorado. These federally-funded programs provide mental health services to people in underserved communities. Their goal is to deliver high-quality care to people who need behavioral healthcare.

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 providing a list of free and low cost resources. We also know you don’t have a job right now. However, there are some providers 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 recommendations, and obtaining 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. By contrast, progress notes showing consistent visits to the doctor are evidence of medical treatment.

For example, objective medical evidence is X-rays, MRI’s, psychiatric evaluations, 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 need additional help obtaining 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 disability attorney in Colorado to represent you. At Cannon Disability, we are experts in winning disability benefits. For example, in the last 30 years, we have won over 20,000 disability cases for our clients. If you need help applying for benefits in Colorado, contact our office. 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 birthdate, wedding date, and divorce date. Likewise, we will need to know the date you last worked. Also, we will need to know the names, addresses, and phone numbers of your doctors.

For instance, the disability application asks basic information about your family and your children. Likewise, you will need your work history. Also, you will need to describe what job you did at each workplace. The SSA needs to know this information in order to process your application.


Cannon Disability offers a free consultation for all Colorado residents. 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 disability. We will examine the merits of your case. Also, we will answer questions about Colorado disability benefits. Most lawyers do charge an attorney fee to review your case. We do not.

Please understand, however, that providing a free consultation is not the same thing as accepting representation. 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 accept representation or that 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 we are not representing you. We will send you a pre-paid envelope to send the paperwork back to us. Or, we will accept electronically signed paperwork.


If you need help with your Colorado disability case, you have found the right law firm. You can learn more about the representatives at Cannon Disability Law on our About Us page. Call us. We can also help you find Colorado’s free health services.

Likewise, if you need an appeal, we can help with that too. There are also forms to be filled out. Don’t worry. If you have questions about these SSA forms, then we will answer them. You can learn more about SSA’s appeal forms here.
