What We Do

Mission:

Family Voices Colorado strives to improve access to and quality of health care for children and youth with special health care needs.

Programs & Services:

Navigation

Family Voices Colorado understands the health care and disability systems from both a family experience and professional perspective. Whether you need help identifying resources or programs, moving beyond red tape through an appeal or grievance process, or accessing additional funding sources to pay for needed therapies, procedures, or equipment, we can provide the information and guidance you need to get answers to your questions.  We work with families, health care providers, and community professionals to make sure children with special health care needs have access to the care and support they need to live life to the fullest.

We provide specialized Navigation services in the following arenas:

Call us today if you need help navigating public or private health insurance, primary care or medical specialists, early intervention, school-based services, Community Centered Boards, guardianship issues, transition from pediatric to adult health care services, or other related systems: 303-733-3000 if you are local to the Denver metro area, or toll-free at 800-881-8272 from anywhere else.

Training

We offer training for families and professionals on a range of topics, including:

  • Medicaid 101
  • Private & Public Insurance Appeals
  • Medical Home Model of Care
  • Billing and Coding for Health Care Providers
  • Medical Record-Keeping for Families

Training can also be customized to suit the needs of the group or organization.

Advocacy

Family Voices Colorado speaks on behalf of children and youth with special health care needs, their families, and the professionals who work with them at the policy level. We gather family stories to share with state legislators and other decision-makers about how proposed laws or regulations are likely to affect the young people and families we serve, and we work with other advocacy organizations to inform and mobilize the public.  We regularly partner with the Arcs and Advocacy Denver, Autism Society of Colorado, Colorado Center on Law and Policy, Colorado Consumer Health Initiative, Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underserved, Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition, Community Centered Boards, Covering Kids & Families, and liaisons at the Departments of Health Care Policy and Financing and Public Health and the Environment, to work for policy changes that fit our mission.

Call us today if you would like to share your story or volunteer with us to make Colorado a better place for children and youth with special health care needs: 303-733-3000 if you are local to the Denver metro area, or toll-free at 800-881-8272 from anywhere else.
