What if I can’t find an appointment that works for my schedule?

If you do not see any appointments that fit your needs, you may always call your AFM clinic for assistance in receiving the appointment time you need. You may also schedule an appointment and add yourself to a waitlist in the event a sooner appointment becomes available. AFM has three urgent care locations available for walk-in services if your concern requires immediate attention.

What happens when I add myself to the waitlist?

When you add yourself to the waitlist after scheduling an appointment, you may receive an appointment invitation via your My Health Connection offering you an appointment that is sooner than your original one. You have two hours to accept this invitation, and these appointments are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Can I schedule imaging with AFM online?

Not at this time. If you require an X-ray, mammogram, or other imaging services, please call us to schedule or be directed to the appropriate location.

What if I need to be seen for multiple concerns and I don’t know what type of visit I require?

Decide which concern needs to be addressed first, and select the appointment type that best fits your needs. Your provider will work with you to address as many concerns as possible during your appointment time. They will also schedule a follow-up visit with you if needed.

I have proxy access over my child’s account. Can I schedule their appointments?

If your child is 13 years of age or younger, you can schedule their appointments through proxy access on My Health Connection. Just select their name in your account and schedule as you would schedule for yourself. If your child is 14 years old or older, you will not have the ability to schedule appointments under your proxy access due to Colorado law. Your child will need to create a new, personal My Health Connection account from which to schedule appointments.

I do not have proxy access over my child’s account. Can I schedule their appointments?

If your child is 13 years old or younger, you will need to obtain proxy access over their My Health Connection account to schedule appointments for them. Please do not attempt to schedule an appointment for your child under your name. Children 14 years old and older must have their own personal My Health Connection account and cannot be scheduled via proxy access.

To gain proxy access for children 13 years old or younger, log in to My Health Connection and select Request account access under Your Menu. Complete the appropriate form under Request access to child’s account.

Can I schedule a virtual urgent care visit?

Not at this time. However, our providers have availability in their schedules for Virtual Visits every day. We highly recommend looking at our providers’ schedules for your Virtual Visit needs to maintain continuity of care.

I’ve only been seen at AFM Urgent Care. Can I schedule an appointment online?

Patients who have only been seen at an AFM Urgent Care need to call our new patient line at (970) 237- 8069 or call an AFM clinic to schedule their first visit with primary care. After you’ve completed that initial appointment, you will have the ability to schedule future visits online.

My PCP is not correct in My Health Connection. Can I change this myself?

Please call your AFM clinic to request this change.

I am newly pregnant and want to schedule my first OB appointment. Can I schedule this online?

Please call your AFM clinic to schedule your first pregnancy appointment or OB intake visit. After your initial appointment, your other prenatal appointments may be scheduled online.

I received an invitation to schedule an appointment sooner after I placed myself on the waitlist. When I went to accept it, it stated the appointment was unavailable. Why?

These appointment invitations are on a first-come, first-serve basis. If the system states that the appointment time is unavailable, another patient accepted the invitation before you were able to do so. You will not be removed from the waitlist and are eligible to receive additional invitations if appointments become available.

Can I schedule using the app?

Yes. You can schedule online using the UCHealth app or using the My Health Connection portal on your web browser.
