Pricing, Good Faith Estimates, and Surprise Billing

Southwest Health System Pricing

Southwest Health System is committed to consumer pricing transparency. It’s important that patients and families have the information they need about the cost of care at Southwest Health System.

Keep in mind – this pricing applies only to services provided through the hospital and cannot account for a variety of factors that would alter the final bill including specialty services provided by independent providers’ professional fees (such as radiologists, pathologists, or anesthesiologist/CRNA), complications, use of medical devices, length of stay as well as other additional variables such as implants, specialty drugs or secondary procedures.

  • It does not reflect coverages for patients who have health insurance through Medicare, Medicaid, other government insurance programs, or an insurance company.
  • If a patient has health insurance, the patient’s health insurance policy (including deductibles, co-pay, co-insurance, and out-of-pocket maximums) will apply and the amount the patient owes will depend on the patient’s insurance coverage.
  • It does not include potential discounts to those eligible for the Colorado Indigent Care Program or our Financial Assistance Program.  Information on both can be found here.


Below you will find information about the cost of common procedures and hospital visits. Please contact our patient financial services department for assistance or questions about our pricing.

Good Faith Estimates

Under the law, patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance (“self-pay”) are entitled to receive a Good Faith Estimate (“GFE”) from their healthcare provider for the cost of medical services and items.

If you want to recieve a GFE, please call (970) 565-6666.


The good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur. It also does not include services or items that are billed by a third party, such as anesthesiologists, radiologists, and pathologists. If your final bill is $400 or more than your GFE, federal law allows you to dispute (appeal) the bill.
