If a life-threatening emergency exists, you should call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency room. If the situation is not life-threatening, please call (208)883-7614 to page the medical provider on call. The provider on call will help you decide if you need to be seen, or what home measures can be safely tried first.
After Hours: Emergencies after normal business hours will usually be handled at the Gritman Medical Center emergency room. However, if the emergency room facilities are not necessary, we can sometimes arrange to meet you at Moscow Medical for emergency care at times when the clinic is not open.
Thank you for choosing Moscow Medical as your health care provider. We are committed to building a successful physician-patient relationship with you and your family. Your clear understanding of our Financial Policy is important to our professional relationship. Please understand that payment for services is a part of that relationship. Please ask if you have any questions about our fees, our policies, or your responsibilities. It is your responsibility to notify our office of any patient information changes.
PAYMENT is expected at the time of your visit. We will accept cash, check, or credit card. Payment will include any unmet deductible, co-insurance, co-payment amount, or non-covered charges from your insurance company. If you do not carry insurance payment is expected, in full, at the time of service.
INSURANCE is a contract between you and your insurance company. We will bill your primary insurance company as a courtesy to you. In order to properly bill your insurance company we require that you disclose all insurance information. Failure to provide complete insurance information may result in patient responsibility for the entire bill. Although we may estimate what your insurance company may pay, it is the insurance company that makes the final determination of your eligibility and benefits. If your insurance company is not contracted with us, you agree to pay any portion of the charges not covered by insurance, including but not limited to those charges above the usual and customary allowance. If we are out of network for your insurance company and your insurance pays you directly, you are responsible for payment and agree to forward the payment to us immediately.
SELF-PAY accounts are patients without insurance coverage, patients covered by insurance plans in which the clinic does not participate. Self-pay patients are required to pay in full at time of service, unless prior payments arrangements have been made.
