These agencies and organizations can help you make ends meet after an accident
If you are having difficulty paying your medical bills after a Colorado car accident, we hear you. Having medical offices breathing down your neck for money when you are in pain is tough.
On the upside, Colorado offers several financial assistance resources for personal injury victims in the state. These resources can help you keep your accounts out of collections until you receive a settlement or verdict in your case.
Colorado Department of Human Services
The Colorado state government website for human services offers several options for people who are behind on their bills.
Through the PEAK program's website, you can apply for help with all kinds of bills, including medical costs. Contact information for PEAK is available here.
Colorado State Website
The main Colorado state government website also has many health services programs that you can use to get help paying your bills.
Colorado Consumer Health Initiative
The Colorado Consumer Health Initiative (CCHI) provides Coloradans who have little or no health insurance with information on government and private resources for medical bills.
CCHI also closely monitors the state's Hospital Payment Assistance program, which requires hospitals to provide information about all available charity and financial assistance programs to patients.
If you have retained a personal injury attorney, remember that he or she should be able to connect you with Colorado resources as well.
