PATIENT ASSISTANCE FUND
The mission of the Patient Assistance Fund is to help provide access to necessities for medical care to those patients with no other source of support
At Denver Health we believe it is our responsibility to provide care for those in need. That’s why we created the Patient Assistance Fund to meet the specific needs of patients who have no other health care resources.
Denver Health serves the most vulnerable residents of Denver, and although we provided more than $450 million of uncompensated care to uninsured patients in 2011, even that amount of money is not sufficient to meet the enormous needs of our patients.
In 2012, the Patient Assistance Fund met the diverse needs of more than 2,400 patients who could not afford medications, treatments, appointment co-pays, transportation needs, and medical devices necessary to improve their health status. The table below summarizes these results.
Your donation will fund our neediest patients including the poor, uninsured, mentally ill, pregnant teens, persons addicted to alcohol and other substances, victims of violence, the homeless, and people living with AIDS. Learn More
