Komen Colorado understands that not all women have access to insurance coverage for diagnostic tests. Depending on your insurance carrier, the cost of diagnostic tests may go toward meeting an annual deductible, making them not eligible for co-payment or cost-sharing options. Therefore, the cost of some diagnostics tests could be prohibitive for a woman to have the test done.
It is important, though, that you determine if the cost is prohibitive BEFORE the test is actually done. Once a test is completed, it is more challenging to find financial assistance.
If you have already completed a diagnostic test and find you cannot pay the bill, please contact the medical facility’s financial navigator to see if they have available resources or can setup a payment plan that works for you. You may also contact Komen Colorado to discuss your situation to determine if resources are available by calling 303-744-2088 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
