Pricing & Billing FAQs

Your ability to pay is not a determining factor for service.

Care is not based on your ability to pay. Our Durango staff works with you to help you understand the cost associated with procedures as well as available insurance coverage and payment plans. We can estimate costs in advance so there are no surprises on the day of your surgery.

If you have any questions about your bill or the anticipated costs of an upcoming procedure, our accounting team is available to assist you at any time. Please contact a Financial Counselor at ext. 232.
