We encourage you to become familiar with the terms and conditions of your health insurance coverage and review any changes each year. Understanding your insurance coverage can help you avoid unnecessary bills. If you are unsure of your co-pay responsibilities, please review your insurance card, call your insurance company, or call an Insurance Support Team representative at (970) 777-2902 or (888) 652-7640.
Vail Valley Medical Center will submit bills to your insurance company when complete information is supplied. Please remember that your policy is a contract between you and your insurance company, and you have the final responsibility for payment of your hospital bill. If your insurance company does not pay within 45 days of billing, please contact them to resolve the delay. Secondary insurance is billed after the primary insurance pays. If you were unable to provide complete billing information at the time of your visit, please phone the information to our Customer Service Center within 48 hours. For more information, please call (970) 777-2850 or (888) 209-7711.
VVMC's Financial Assistance Guidelines (pdf) establish the financial requirements for payment of services based on consistent compliance criteria incorporating individual patient financial conditions and circumstances. If you do not have health insurance and cannot pay in full at the time of service, please call our financial counselors at (970) 477-3116 (Vail) or (970) 569-7525 (Edwards).
Costs of service are reviewed on an annual basis and are comparable to other mountain resort areas. If you received an estimate of anticipated costs, and it does not match your bill, you must keep in consideration that the estimate is only a range of costs, and not an actual price. If you have further questions/concerns about your bill, please call Patient Accounts at (970) 777-2850 or (888) 209-7711.
