State policy is to send all unpaid invoices to the state collections agency. The laboratory cannot hold accounts from going to the collection agency as this is an automatic process. Each outstanding invoice is issued a separate account number and collection fees are added to the invoice amount.


To determine which collections notice goes to which laboratory invoice, please contact CDPHE accounting at 303-692-2120.


You must pay the total amount listed on the collections notice directly to the state collection agency to clear the account. Do not remit your payment to the state laboratory.
