With health care costs continuing to rise, many opportunities exist to improve care provided and lower costs which can lead to a healthier Colorado.
Statewide measures from the Colorado All Payer Claims Database (CO APCD) can help identify variation so we can find ways to decrease spending, control utilization, improve quality, and reduce disparities in condition prevalence.

- Costs refer to the amount paid to the provider for services by both health insurance companies and patients. Costs do not include any premiums paid and do not reflect what it costs the provider to deliver care.
- Payer costs DO NOT include administrative costs, adjustments made before or after a claim is settled, or pharmacy rebates and discounts. Medicaid costs do not include Long Term Services and Support.
- This information is based on claims data for the vast majority of insured Coloradans, but does not reflect self-pay, the uninsured, some people covered by self-insured employer plans, or those covered under Federal programs like the VA, TRICARE, or Indian Health Services.
