Please note that it is your responsibility to call your insurance provider and verify the specific benefits, coverage, co-payments, deductibles, specialist coverage or other out-of-pocket expenses you may incur prior to your visit.

Patients who have not been seen before at CU Medicine (any location) will need call 720.382.7800 to schedule a new patient visit for their first appointment.

There is not necessarily a new patient fee, but a new patient visit is longer than a normal one and therefore has a higher associated charge. It is likely you will have a higher out-of-pocket expense for an initial visit. However, if you have been seen at Anschutz Medical Campus Seniors Clinic, you will only require a new patient visit if you are seeing a new physician.
