Data Access Fees

As Administrator of the CO APCD, our goal is to increase stakeholder access to data sets and standard/custom reports from the CO APCD to advance the Triple Aim. In order to do that, we use a data licensing fee formula that enables us to cover our costs while providing high value, competitively priced data and other information products.










*Please note that this information represents baseline pricing and that final fees are calculated based on a number of factors including those listed below.

Factors that go into our data access fees include:

  • Indirect costs (including legal fees)
  • Labor costs/time required
  • Number of unique and specific data elements
  • Output type (Tableau, Excel, pivot tables, etc.)
  • Any additional professional services/consultation requested

Additional Resources:


If you are employed by a government entity, are a researcher affiliated with a public institution of higher education, or work for a non-profit with annual income of less than $10 million, you may be eligible for the CO APCD Scholarship Program.  The program is administered by the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing and provides eligible organizations with funding awards to subsidize the cost of access to Colorado APCD Data.
