Who can receive an invoice?  

Clinical testing

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.

Water testing

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.

Billing cycle  

Invoices are processed monthly, by result date. Newborn blood spot screening invoices are processed monthly by the received date.

Collection agency notices

All unpaid bills go to the state collection agency per state policy. This is an automatic process. Collection fees are added to the original invoice amount. If you received a collection notice, contact the phone number on the notice. The total amount listed on the collection notice must be paid directly to the state collection agency to clear the account. Do not send your payment to the State Lab.
