Policy Letter (important, please read):
West Denver Endocrinology is an adult outpatient Endocrinology specialty clinic. Only endocrine concerns or other metabolic, nutrition, or hormonal abnormalities are addressed. Patients are required to maintain a primary care provider (PCP) to assist in "non-endocrine" healthcare. Patients assume associated risks if they involve an endocrinology clinician in care outside of an endocrinology's clinicians scope of practice.
Only prescriptions necessary for hormone replacement or treatment of endocrine disease are prescribed. West Denver Endocrinology clinicians do not prescribe opioids or benzodiazepine medications.
West Denver Endocrinology clinicians do not offer prescriptions for pork thyroid. Prescriptions for Armour, Naturethryoid, NP thyroid (Natural Porcine thyroid), WP thyroid (Whole Porcine thyroid), or dessicated thyroid extract are not provided.
West Denver Endocrinology LLC is not equipped to handle medical emergencies. For a medical emergency call 911 or report to the nearest emergency room.
Patients are expected to obtain a referral for initial consultation. If health insurance coverage is denied due to failing to get a referral, the patient will be billed the full cost of appointment. To make your visit as productive as possible we may require you to supply test results or medical records or may request records from other (or prior) care providers.
Fees are billed for all services provided. Patients are expected to check with insurer prior to attending an appointment to verify services are covered. It is the patient's responsibility to ensure that the clinic is kept up to date on patient's insurance information. Prompt payment for services is expected. A fee schedule is available upon request. Patient is expected to pay copay amount deemed owed by insurance company on the day of appointment. Patients also reserve the right to forgo insurance billing and pay self-pay price. Self-pay patients receive a “prompt pay” discount when full payment for services is received on day of appointment. All insurance claims and fees assigned by insurer (such as deductibles, co-insurance, unpaid copays, etc…) are handled by West Denver Endocrinology’s billing service provider (RPM Healthcare billing). A statement will be sent to you. Payment or response is required upon receipt of a statement. Payment plans or other assistance are offered on an as needed basis and partial payments are accepted. Patients who fail to pay or respond to statements for more than 120 days are dismissed from the clinic. Delinquent accounts will be sent to collections (United Resource Systems) and patient will be responsible for all associated fees.
Vaccine eligible patients are expected to be fully immunized. West Denver Endocrinology clinicians do not offer vaccine exemptions.
Although a clinician is nearly always available via phone, e-mail, etc..., it is still critically important to follow up with patients face to face (in person or video chat). Please adhere to the recommended visit frequency outlined in your care plan. Prescriptions and test orders will not be provided to patients not attending appointments and some insurers require patients to attend regular clinic visits to receive coverage of medications or medical supplies. Patients who cannot comply with attending recommended appointments or fail to maintain a primary care physician may be asked to find a new Endocrinologist.
It is the patient’s responsibility to ensure timely receipt of all test results. Patient’s will contact their provider within 7-14 days of obtaining testing to receive results (if results are not already received).
72 hours is required for prescription refills. Please be aware of your medication needs and allow time to get your prescriptions filled. Prescriptions are crucial to your health and well-being; please call your pharmacy for your refills well in advance of running low. Be aware that many prescriptions need to be authorized by your insurance company. Authorizations are completed in a timely manner, but it takes days to weeks to receive an insurance authorization.
West Denver Endocrinology will not dismiss a “non-compliant” patient who attends all appointments and demonstrates a genuine willingness to work with a clinician to address and overcome barriers to treatment plan compliance; however, the patient assumes all responsibility for bad outcomes due to non-compliance and any patient who willfully violates West Denver Endocrinology LLC policies, misuses or abuses medication, is verbally abusive to a clinician or staff member, or threatens a clinician or medical assistant will be permanently terminated from care at West Denver Endocrinology LLC.

Appointments & Cancellations
With the exception of serious emergencies, it is expected that you keep your appointments. If you need to reschedule an appointment, it is necessary that you advise clinic staff at least 24 hours in advance by calling and leaving a message at 720-330-9760.
