Financial Policies

We are committed to being a partner in providing conscientious medical care for you.  Payment of the bill is considered an important part of that partnership.  Thank you for reading our Financial Agreement.  Please let us know if you have questions or concerns.

The following is a statement of our Financial Policy, which we require you to read and sign.

It is your responsibility

    • To understand your benefit plan
    • To know if a referral is required
    • To know if pre-authorization is required prior to a procedure
    • To know what services are covered

Full payment for self-pay patients and co-payments are due at the time of service.
We accept cash, checks, Visa/MasterCard/Discover/American Express.
Other arrangements must be made in advance with our Billing Office.

Regarding Insurance:

Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company.  Payment of your bill is ultimately your responsibility.  Western Nephrology contracts with, and bills, most insurance carriers.  We also participate with both Medicare and Medicaid of Colorado.  If you are insured by a company with which we do not contract, we can supply you with a statement of your charges.  You may submit this, along with any additional forms your insurance requires, to your insurance company.

The price for any given health care service is an estimate and the actual charges are dependent on the circumstances at the time the service is rendered. If you are covered by health insurance, you are strongly encouraged to consult with your health insurer to determine accurate information about your financial responsibility for a particular health care service provided by a health care provider at this office. If you are not covered by health insurance, you are strongly encouraged to contact our billing office at 303-456-5484 to discuss payment options prior to receiving a health care service from a health care provider at this office since posted health care prices may not reflect the actual amount of your financial responsibility.

Note: self-pay patients are offered a 20% discount at the time of service if paid in full.
