Health Insurance

Whether you have insurance or not, as an AHEC, CCD, MSU Denver and CU Denver student, faculty or staff member you can access medical and mental healthcare at the Health Center at Auraria. Many insurance companies include the Health Center at Auraria as an in-network provider. This means that your insurance will pay for all or most of the costs of your healthcare.
