With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, testing for the virus became a critical component of mitigating the spread. Many test options and locations became available and continue to offer testing options. This dataset explores price variation for COVID-19 testing based on where Coloradans received the test in terms of setting (ER, Outpatient facility, or Provider Administered), and by region across the state (DOI and rural vs. urban counties). In addition, prices are available by in and out-of-network provider to show variation in coverage options selected. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
Note: Prices only reflect the payment associated with the test itself and do not include any facility fees or payments made for other services that may have been provided during the visit.
