Becoming a Patient
Thank you for your interest in becoming a patient at Pueblo Community Health Center. Our services are top quality, whether you need a routine physical exam, prenatal care, one-on-one help managing your diabetes or depression, or any other service we provide. We also have several special population programs here at PCHC. We are here to help YOU!
Before you are seen by one of our providers, we will need some basic information. Please identify the category which best suits your needs:
I have private health insurance, Medicaid, and/or Medicare.
Call the Registration department at (719) 543-8711 before you make a medical appointment. You may be asked to update your current information, i.e. your name, address, phone number and insurance information. Arrive 15 minutes early for your first medical appointment to fill out a patient registration form. Please bring your Social Security card and private insurance/Medicaid/Medicare card(s).
I don’t have health insurance.
