Mountain West Medical Center is pleased that you chose us for your healthcare needs. We will be billing you for the services provided. Charges are based on our cost of supplies and operation. All charge estimates given at or before the time of service are estimates only, since your procedure may take longer or require an additional procedure or more supplies than the estimate may include.
If you have given the Registration Clerk insurance information and a copy of your insurance card at the time or service, we will bill your insurance company as a courtesy to you. We also provide the service of billing secondary insurance companies if you provide that information.
Once your insurance has paid, you will be contacted requesting payment of the balance in full. If you are unable to pay in full, you may ask the billing staff to set up a time payment plan. Accounts are expected to be satisfied in full within four months from the date of service unless approval has been given for payments over a longer period of time. In order to qualify for an extended payment plan, supporting financial documentation may be required.
If payment from your insurance company is not received within 90 days, your claim may be referred to a collector for follow-up. We provide the services in good faith, and since the service was provided to you, we look to you for payment. Your contract with your insurance company does not eliminate your responsibility for payment if they do not pay on time.
If you did not provide us with insurance information, your account will be placed in a self pay status. Please notify our Business Office when payment can be expected or request that they set up time payment arragements to avoid collection referral.
We make every effort to provide accurate billing services. If you have any question regarding your bill, please contact our Billing Office at (435) 843-3724.
