It is our mission to provide you with fair and accurate billing.

Insurance billing

Cedar Diagnostics participates with Medicare, Medicaid and commercial insurance programs.  We also participate with numerous regional provider networks. Our fees are reasonable, and we accept the insurance payment as reimbursement for our services.  If deductibles or co-pays are applied to lab services by your insurance you are responsible for these amounts.  

Pre-Pay and Self-Pay

Self-pay: If you do not have or are not using insurance, we offer a substantial discount of our usual billed charges.

Pre-pay: You may also pre-pay for Paps and biopsies and blood tests and receive a greater discount.

To prepay for blood tests:  You can visit a participating blood draw location. Payment in cash or credit card is due at the time blood is drawn, or you may call 970-247-0937 to pay with a credit card.

Paps and tissues biopsies:  Your doctor will obtain the Pap or tissue biopsy sample.  Payment in cash or credit card is due at the time of service, or you may call 970-565-8482 to pay with a credit.  There will be one charge for each specimen container.

We are unable to offer pre-pay services for major surgeries such as hysterectomies, breast masses and lymph node biopsies because we do not know in advance which special studies will be necessary to make an accurate diagnosis. We can offer you the self-pay discount for these types of cases.

“Exclusive” lab contracts

 You may have heard that certain labs have an “exclusive” contract with your health insurance company, and that your lab work must be sent to that lab.  This is rarely the case.  Other labs may have contracts with your health insurance company, but such contracts are seldom exclusive. Cedar Diagnostics participates with Medicare, Medicaid and commercial insurance programs.  Please have your provider send your specimens to us.  Cedar Diagnostics likely is contracted with your insurance carrier.
