What to Bring
You do not need anything to apply, but you do need to know your social security number. It would be helpful to bring a social security card, Medicare card (if you have one), current paycheck stubs, and any termination letters from employment or prior services which you may have received in other states, as well as proof of citizenship status.
Am I Eligible?
The income threshold for Medicaid changes every year, based on changes to the Federal Poverty Limit. Use the income calculator here to determine if you are eligible for financial assistance.
Stout Street Health Center staff can also help you understand if you or your family members are eligible and assist you with the application process.
How to Apply
To apply you’ll need your social security number and proof of citizenship in the United States. If you have a job, you will need to provide employer’s information and income for everyone in the household (pay stubs or copies of paychecks preferred). You will complete an online application with the help of a Stout Street Health Center staff member. The application will take 20–25 minutes to complete. You will be informed whether you have been approved and what your next steps will be. If an online application cannot be completed, we will assist with a paper application, which will be faxed to Denver County upon completion.
Fees and Payments
The Stout Street Health Center and its satellite sites at West End Health Center and 48th Avenue Shelter Health Center accept Medicaid, Medicare, and other insurances. No one will be denied access to services due to an inability to pay. We provide care to the uninsured using a sliding fee payment scale that is based on family size and income.
