The State Lab invoices the submitter for clinical testing — any testing that requires a human specimen. Submitters include local public health agencies, government entities, and health facilities only. We do not bill patients, insurance agencies, or Medicaid/Medicare.
Payment for water testing is due at the time of sample submission. Make checks payable to CDPHE or pay with a credit card (MasterCard or Visa).*
For testing packages, all bottles in the kit must be returned with samples. If bottles are missing, you may pay a la carte prices or for the entire discounted package price and forgo the uncollected samples.
*No credit or debit cards can be accepted over the phone. Credit/debit charges incur a fee of 2.25% plus 75 cents.
