Medicaid/Medicare

The Health Center at Auraria cannot bill Medicaid or Medicare. However, all students, faculty and staff on the Auraria Campus who are insured by Medicaid or Medicare, can still be seen at the Health Center at Auraria for Medical or Mental Healthcare.

In this case, patients are automatically given a 50% discount off all billed charges for any Medical Services attained at the Health Center at Auraria.

This same 50% discount applies for all Mental Health Services provided at the Health Center at Auraria for any CU Denver and CCD student. Since MSU Denver students pay an additional Mental Health Student Fee, all Mental Health Services at the Health Center at Auraria are provided at no cost to all MSU Denver students.

Please note that even though the Health Center at Auraria cannot bill Medicaid or Medicare, the Health Center at Auraria is permitted to issue referrals, order labs and write prescriptions for students who participate in Medicaid or Medicare and these specific services will be covered according to your plan’s benefits.

The Health Center at Auraria also provides several no charge services available to all AHEC, CCD, CU Denver and MSU Denver students, faculty and staff regardless of insurance coverage.
