Cost estimation and responsibility
By working together, we can minimize misunderstandings, payment delays and billing costs.
To help make the billing process as easy as possible, we bill your insurance company directly. However, insurance benefits do not always cover the complete cost of care. If you are unsure of your coverage for a particular medical procedure or test, we recommend that you contact your insurance provider before scheduling the appointment. Please note, you are responsible for any charges not covered by your benefit plan.
To obtain an estimate for future services, please visit our Charges and Cost Estimator Tool page or our online price estimator tool that calculates detailed cost estimates on-demand, and have charge lists available for download. You can also request an estimate by completing this form or by calling our patient billing team at (406) 447-2783. Please keep in mind that estimates do not represent a guarantee of what will be charged. There are often many variables to each individual patient’s treatment and services, and costs may vary greatly depending upon many factors including but not limited to insurance coverage, type of treatment and resources consumed.
Once you receive your first statement, your account balance is due within 30 days. If you are unable to pay, please contact us as soon as possible to make payment arrangements.
