Price Transparency for Common Procedures and Services
We know it’s not easy to understand your health care options and
the cost of care.
At Boulder Community Health, we are doing our best to give you what you
need to know in advance by providing self-pay information and resources
about pricing for common procedures and services. Please click here for our
Price Transparency PDF.
Actual charges for any health care service are dependent on the circumstances
at the time the service is rendered. Actual prices on the final hospital
bill may vary from this information based on the particular hospital providing
the services, the patient’s medical condition, unknown circumstances
or complications, final diagnosis, and recommended treatment ordered by
the attending physician(s) and other factors.
Please be advised that while BCH attempts to estimate the prices of care
as accurately as possible, there may be significant variations between
the prices listed and the actual price billed to the patient. BCH strongly
encourages patients with health insurance to consult with their insurer
to determine their financial responsibility.
Cost of An Emergency Department Visit
Emergency Department charges are based on the level of emergency care provided
to our patients at either our
Foothills Hospital Emergency Department in Boulder or the
Emergency Department at our Community Medical Center in Lafayette.
The levels, with level 1 representing basic emergency care, reflect the
type of accommodations needed, the personnel resources, the intensity
of care and the amount of time needed to provide treatment. The following
charges do not include fees for drugs, appliances, supplies or additional
ancillary procedures that may be required for a particular emergency treatment.
They also do not include fees for Emergency Department physicians, who
will bill separately for their services.
Our Emergency Department Price Estimate Rates reflect the amount a patient might pay if they take advantage of our Boulder
Community Health prompt-pay self-pay discount.
