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.
