Our goal is to ensure superior customer service while ensuring the correct information has been gathered regarding your needs and billing information.

Care management at UCHealth Longs Peak 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 may 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 all of the UCHealth Longs Peak Hospital team to determine a safe discharge plan.

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.

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.
