A new non-profit organization will start operations this February (Colorado Secretary of State nonprofit ID# 20141763960) in order to provide occupational medicine medico-legal services at no fee to patients from Colorado and Wyoming . Individuals from these states who are afflicted with work-related injuries and illnesses face significant financial barriers in getting documentation of their medical conditions from the perspective of a provider who places a priority on their health status. Numerous proprietary organizations exist in metropolitan Denver for the sole purpose of writing opinions about the health of such workers from the perspective of employers and insurers. The Mountain West Workers Free Clinic will begin operations on February 2, 2015 in order to address this imbalance.
Ailing and injured workers may be referred by legal representatives, collective bargaining organizations, or be self-referred to this clinic activity. Medical history, physical examinations, basic office testing, and written documentation of these data are available at no charge. There is no obligation to proceed with any legal contest, use any particular legal representative, or use any particular provider of specialized testing (e.g. imaging centers). Depositions and testimony related to the data collected by the Free Clinic are also offered at no charge. Treatment of work-related injury and illness is available at the same physical location but workers are under no obligation to use the proprietary occupational medicine service line offered there. Moreover, Colorado patients may need to engage the services of an attorney in order to make the affiliated clinic authorized to treat their particular work injury or illness because of the requirements of state law. In some instances, the clinic may not be the most appropriate healthcare provider for your problem and workers will be informed when this is the case.
The physical location of the clinic is 9146 Princeton Street Littleton CO. Persons interested in obtaining no fee services should leave voicemail at 303-569-6500
or fax 303-648-4425
with contact information in order to establish an appointment. Because of the complexity of documentation in cases of work-related injury and illness, the estimated capacity of the Mountain West Workers Free Clinic is about 2-3 patients/day.
