Patients and visitors

Admissions

Admissions is your first step to accessing UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital services. Our goal is to ensure superior customer service while ensuring we have gathered all the correct information regarding your needs and billing information. Our Admissions department is responsible for scheduling, pre-registering and registering patients; verifying insurance data; conducting financial counseling; estimating charges, and collecting patient copays, deductibles and coinsurance at the time of service.

Care management

Care management at UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital is here for you. We work with you, the patient, and your family as an advocate during your hospital stay. We will assist you as you transition through your hospitalization and help facilitate your discharge plan home or to another facility, if appropriate. We will work with your insurance to maximize your benefits and pre-authorize home needs as necessary. Your discharge plan could include the need for other services such as home oxygen, medical equipment or home-care services. The care management team will assist in making these arrangements.

All of our services are coordinated through your provider. We work closely with the UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital team to determine a safe discharge plan. Please call 720.516.2060 to speak to a member of the care management team.

Complaints and grievances

UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital encourages you to ask questions about your care during your stay. If we don’t meet your expectations or you have a specific concern during your stay, please let your caregiver know. You may also request to speak with the department manager or hospital supervisor.

Patient rights

Privacy (HIPAA) and your information

At your request we keep information about your hospital stay private and confidential, as required by federal law (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA).

One way we maintain your privacy is to set up a special password at your request. You tell us this password, which you may share with friends and family so they can find out how you’re doing. When callers give us your password, we can update them on your progress. If callers don’t know the password, we cannot tell them anything about your condition.

We’ll write your password on a note card for you to keep.

Advance directives and living wills

We can help you complete a Living Will or other advance directive at your pre-admission appointment. These legal documents spell out the care you want — or don’t want — in case you cannot make your own decisions and communicate them to us.
