Eligibility PAD HOME

 

Patient eligibility for care is checked at the time the appointment is made and at the actual appointment (except in emergency cases).  The ID card is used to validate eligibility when you arrive for your appointment.  All children aged 10 and older must possess a valid ID card and present it at the appointment.  However, care will not be denied if you fail to bring the ID card to the appointment.  You will be requested to go to the Treasurer's Office (or the Admission's Desk in the event the Treasurer's Office is closed) to complete a form so that we may check on your eligibility at a later time.  You will also be requested to return with a valid ID card within 30 days, so keep those ID cards handy.  Except for approved cases, a bill will be issued to patients (or the health care insurance provider) for any care rendered to a patient found not to be eligible for treatment. Please bring the ID card back within the 30 day window to avoid a bill from being sent out.

For Reserve Component issues (such as obtaining eligibility for Line of Duty care) contact the Chief of Patient Administration at (719) 526-7283 or the NCOIC at (719) 526-7142.
