Denver Health Financial Assistance Program

The Denver Health Financial Assistance Program (DFAP) is a Denver Health program that helps pay for health services provided by Denver Health providers. Patients who live in Denver County and do not qualify for Medicaid, CICP or the CHP+ plan may qualify for DFAP. Eligibility is based on family size and income. DFAP is not health insurance. It cannot be used with any other health insurance program, including Medicaid and Medicare.

DFAP Medical Care

DFAP is a discount program for Denver County residents that helps lower the cost of health care services received at Denver Health.

You will only have to pay a flat fee/co-payment for ALL care. The charge is based on the type of medical care or service being provided. These fees will be your only cost. This new payment structure will likely lower the cost of care in many cases. Except in emergency situations, you will be asked to make payment at time you get care.

The new fees charged under DFAP are below. The “ratings” at the top of the chart match with your family size and income.

DFAP Dental Care

DFAP also helps pay for Dental Services for some Denver County residents if they do not have an insurance plan or medical assistance program to cover these services. Eligibility is based on family size, income and resources.

DFAP Dental helps pay for a portion of some dental services so patients do not have to pay the full amount. With DFAP Dental, patients pay a percentage of the charges for the services provided. The percentage that the patient pays is based on family size, income and resources. Except in emergency situations, patients are required to pay a deposit before receiving services. The deposit is based on family size, income and resources.
