We sincerely apologize for an error that occurred and resulted in many of our patients receiving a Final Notice Collection Letter.

Primary Care Partners has partnered with MediCorHealth to offer remote patient monitoring services. Remote monitoring is a program covered by Medicare to help doctors identify health conditions early on.
How Remote Patient Monitoring works:
- Patients receive a smart blood pressure device or weight scale in the mail at no cost when covered by Medicare.
- Patients take a few readings each week.
- The device will send these readings to the doctor and is monitored weekly.
- If a reading needs attention, patients will receive a call from a health care professional in their doctor’s office.
- The patient will then answer questions to help the doctor understand if there is a health issue present.
- Each month the patient will get a call from a health care professional in the doctor’s office to teach them about care plans.
Primary Care Partners providers and staff are your partners in health.

Primary Care Partners is offering two added innovative service solutions that will help Mesa County deal with adjusting to the pandemic precautions. The first service is, TeleHealth care options through video conference for medical care. The second service is, allowing patients who don’t have a primary care provider to get medical care at Docs On Call.
Primary Care Partners’ TeleHealth allows patients to talk with a provider at home over the phone or on a live video chat. This can include follow up care, consultations and acute care conditions with all their primary care providers, physical therapists and a registered dietitian. TeleHealth video visits allows at risk patients, rural patients or any other patient to avoid additional travel outside their homes. For more information about TeleHealth you can visit Primary Care Partners’ website at pcpgj.com.
Docs On Call and Primary Care Partners are extending their services to patients without established health care providers. A primary health care provider was required previously to get care at Docs On Call for follow up purposes. During this health crisis there are a number of people needing medical care who don’t have a primary care provider. Docs On Call has changed its policy. If a patient needs help finding a provider, Docs On Call help patients find one. This would mean when you need to be seen for injuries or acute illness that you would go to your doctor for, you can call Docs On Call for those needs. This would allow Emergency rooms time to see more life threatening situations and allows you to be seen in a more timely manner. Docs On Call requires that you call them first before you come in and bring a list of any medications you may take. All Primary Care Partners offices including Docs On Call do accept in-person visits and follow all CDC guidelines for infection prevention for outpatient settings. Call (970) 255-1576 to make an after-hours appointment at Docs On Call or call (970) 256-5211 to call Primary Care Partners during regular business hours.
KKCO 11 News did a news piece about how Docs on Call is accepting patients without primary care providers during the COVID crisis.
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) — Patients who don’t have a primary care provider can get medical care at Docs on Call.
Docs on Call and primary care providers are extending their services to patients without established health care providers. A primary health care provider was required previously for follow up purposes. Due to the health crisis and the high number of people needing medical care who don’t have providers, Docs on Call has changed its policy. If a patient needs help finding a provider, primary care providers will help you find one.
“Instead of going to the emergency room for stitches or the concussion or migraine you can’t get rid of, come into Docs and see if that’s not something we can take care of before you go to the emergency room,” said pediatrician Dr. Megan Stiner. “I think this is also a really good option because the emergency room is still going to be expensive.”
Docs on Call asks that you call them first before you come in and bring a list of any medications you may take. they will accept in-person visits.
