Online Bill Pay

Q: Why did I receive two bills when visiting a doctor at University of Colorado Hospital or Children’s Hospital Colorado?

A: It is common practice among hospitals and health systems to utilize a split billing procedure for visits, consultations and procedures. The bills are not for the same aspects of the visit, though they reflect the same date of service. CU Medicine bills for the provider you saw on the day of the visit. Our hospital partners bill for the use of the facility, nursing and administrative staff, and any equipment/supplies used during the visit. Click here for more information on CU Medicine and our affiliate clinical partners.

A: We accept a wide variety of insurance plans. To view a list of insurance plans CU Medicine accepts, visit our Accepted Insurance web page to easily search accepted health plan options.


Q: How does CU Medicine work with my insurance plan to determine what amount I’m responsible for paying?

A: After your visit to a CU Medicine clinic or to a CU Medicine provider, the charges for those services are generated on a claim form and sent to your insurance company. Your insurance then tells CU Medicine if you are responsible for a portion of the provided services.

Your insurance will usually identify any patient responsibility by checking the following items in your benefits plan:

  • Deductible: The amount a patient owes for covered healthcare services before their insurance company begins to share the costs.
  • Coinsurance: The amount a patient must pay for covered healthcare services after they have satisfied the deductible required by their health insurance plan.

CU Medicine offers interest-free payment plans. Please call us at 303-493-7700 and our Patient Services team can review your options. You can also visit our online bill pay system and review your interest-free payment options there.


Q: Who do I contact if I have questions about my bill?

A: Our Billing Inquiries web page has answers to the most commonly asked billing questions. If you need additional assistance regarding your bill, email our billing team or call our Patient Services team at 303-493-7700.
