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.
