Understanding Cost of Care
We know purchasing healthcare services and understanding the exact price of services isn't easy. There are many reasons why, and we are doing our best to make progress by helping consumers. To that end, we offer resources for self-pay (non-insured) patients so they can understand what their responsibility will be for common procedures and services.
The Patient Pricing Center offers a personal, convenient way to learn about your specific health care charges before being admitted to the hospital. You have several options to receive an estimate for any service or procedure at the SCL Health hospitals in the Denver and front range area:
- Good Samaritan Medical Center
- Lutheran Medical Center
- Saint Joseph Hospital
Please call a Patient Pricing Center representative at 303-272-0999.
When calling, please provide:
Your name and address.
Insurance carrier (if applicable).
Description of the procedure.
Whether you are having the procedure performed on an inpatient or outpatient basis.
Which hospital you will receive treatment.
Other resources available to help consumers compare prices for common procedures are available. None have been perfected, yet they can offer information helpful to understanding healthcare prices for various procedures.
