At Children's Hospital Colorado, we are committed to consumer transparency and quality. It's important to us that patients and families have the information they need about the cost of care within our system. That's why we supported state legislation in 2017 requiring health facilities in Colorado to publicly post charges for the 50 most common inpatient charges and the 25 most common outpatient charges for patients who do not have insurance (also called "self-pay"). We are including the locations for these services as required by law.
I have health insurance. Will my charges be the same?
The information below applies to patients without health insurance (also called "self-pay"). The information does not apply to patients who have health insurance coverage through Medicaid, other government programs, an employer or the private insurance market. If a patient has health insurance, the amount the patient owes will depend on their plan and can include deductibles, co-payments and co-insurances.
If you have health insurance, you should call your health insurer to determine accurate information about your financial responsibility for a particular healthcare service provided at Children's Colorado. If you have questions about your bill, please contact our Patient Financial Services team at 720-777-6422.
Do these charges represent the total cost of care?
The charges below do not include physician or certain other health care providers' services at Children's Colorado. Patients may receive a separate bill for these services because when you see a doctor or specialist at Children's Colorado, you'll receive two bills: one from us and one from your provider or providers. This is because our doctors don't work directly for the hospital. Instead, they have privileges to practice at our hospital.
For more information, please read our billing guide for families.
Who should I call if I am uninsured and have questions?
If you are uninsured, please call us at 720-777-7001 to talk to a financial counselor at Children's Colorado. Our financial counselors are available Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
What if the condition that I need information about is not listed here?
