ACHES & PAINS Healthcare Voucher Program

ACHES and PAINS healthcare vouchers can help Grand County residents get the care they need, close to home. Depending on your insurance status and income level, vouchers can cover costs of some doctor visits, mental health visits, and prescriptions, plus well-child exams for children and acute or preventative dental visits for children and pregnant women. Supportive service vouchers are also available, to support needs such as gas or hotel stays for health appointments. 

For Jackson County residents, children and pregnant women may be eligible for dental vouchers, and children and families may be eligible for vouchers covering mental health visits. Certain income, insurance, and residency requirements apply. 

How to Apply: 

Voucher program applications are available at most Grand County medical, dental, and mental health providers. Applications must be completed and approved before your appointment, and certain income, insurance and residency requirements apply.

If your application is approved, your voucher is given to the provider and your bill is sent directly from the provider to the Grand County Rural Health Network for payment.

To see if you qualify or to learn more, contact your local provider, school nurse, or Grand County Rural Health Network at 970-725-3477.

In 2022: 

127 Grand County adults and children received 288 healthcare vouchers to support their medical, dental or mental health needs. 

• Healthcare vouchers covered at least $35,358 in doctor, dental and mental health visits, prescriptions and other medical needs on behalf of our neighbors!
