Engaging patients in high-quality, compassionate health care

Important information regarding contracted insurance plans at Boulder Medical Center

  • As a patient, you are responsible for knowing if Boulder Medical Center doctors are contracted with your insurance plan. The best way to confirm this is by contacting your insurance company and/or your Human Resources Department (if your insurance is through your workplace).
  • Boulder Medical Center doctors are not contracted with any exclusive HMO plans.
  • Any other commercial (non-government Medicare/non-Medicaid) plans that are not listed below may be able to be set up as self-pay plans. Contact the Boulder Medical Center business office prior to making an appointment with your provider so that we can work with you to verify insurance coverage and patient balance payment options.
  • Boulder Medical Center does not participate with Champus / Tricare / Triwest or Champva plans and cannot set these patients up as self-pay. We do participate in the VA Choice Plan for cardiology services only. Veterans MUST contact the VA directly to determine their eligibility for cardiology services.
  • New-to-Medicaid Plan patients are only accepted as each physician’s schedule allows, and those questions can only be answered by each physician’s office staff, not the BMC Business Office staff.
  • Insurance contracts are subject to change without notice.
