San Luis Valley Health believes in being transparent in its pricing.

Our goal is to provide meaningful, comprehensive and reliable information to help you understand prices in advance of your procedure. We have created a list of the top inpatient and outpatient procedure costs for self-pay patients to give you an estimate of the expected amount for a commonly provided health care service.  Actual prices on the final hospital bill may vary from this information based on the particular service, the patient's medical condition, unknown circumstances or complications, final diagnosis, and recommended treatment ordered by the attending physician. 

The pricing only covers the specific service listed and provided through the hospital. These estimates do not include complicating factors or professional fees for services such as those provided by a physician, surgeon, pathologist, anesthesiologist, radiologist, nurse practitioner or other independent practitioners. Also, the pricing does not include fees associated with implants, high-cost drugs, or second procedures. The pricing is for patients who have pre-scheduled the service and are not applicable to patients who receive services in the emergency department. Facility fee costs for self-pay emergency patients are explained here.

The pricing information is not a guarantee of insurance coverage or availability of services. This pricing does not apply to patients who have health insurance coverage 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 for health care services will depend on the patient's insurance coverage. It is the patient's responsibility to communicate with their insurance company for information regarding coverage of a procedure.

There are certain chronic conditions or long-term care that SLV Health may not be able to provide customized pricing for without additional clinical information from your physician.

SLV Health reserves the right to update or change any price at any time.

If you do not see the procedure or service you are looking for, or wish to receive a customized quote on a specific procedure, please request a quote by calling 719-587-8080. Prompt-pay discounts are available to uninsured patients who are able to pay the full amount within 30 days of the billing date. For questions on your bill or about this process, please contact an SLV Health Financial Representative at 719-587-6364.
