Madison Women's Clinic is contracted through the Valley Health Network with both the CCN and IPN networks. These networks include many of the employers in our area. Check the back of your insurance card for an "IPN" or "CCN" logo. We are also contracted with other insurance companies which are frequently used in our area, such as Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Deseret Mutual, and Medicaid. We are happy to bill your Medicare and TriCare/TriWest claims for you, and will accept assignment on those claims.
GYN patients will be asked for their co-payments at the time of their visit. If you have no insurance, we request that you pay your bill at the time of service.
OB patients will be given a financial form which explains estimated costs and suggested monthly payment plans. We appreciate your willingness to meet with us in setting up a workable financial arrangement for both of us.
Surgical patients will also be given an estimated cost sheet with projected insurance coverage.
At our clinic, we strive to be accessible and approachable in meeting your billing needs. We will submit your insurance claims; and, if you encounter a problem with your bill or insurance claim, please call us and we will try to satisfactorily answer your question. Please feel free to call us at (208)356-6185.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is this bill from LabCorp?
When you have a pap smear or biopsy done in our clinic, we send the specimen to a pathologist for reading, and the bill that comes from LabCorp is the pathologist's bill. We do not charge in our office for the pap smear to be done. If your pap smear needs further evaluation, LabCorp will charge an additional fee.
Why is LabCorp billing me for my prenatal laboratory work?
If you are applying for Medicaid for your pregnancy, and you don't yet have a Medicaid number when you come to our office for your first visit, LabCorp will bill you (the patient) directly until you have provided them with your Medicaid number. When you receive that bill from LabCorp, just call their customer service line at 1-800-845-6167 and give them your Medicaid number. If you have problems in that regard, feel free to call our clinic and we will assist you.
Can you change the diagnosis on my claim and resubmit it?
This is a tricky subject. We are happy to review your chart and make sure that we, indeed, have coded your visit correctly; but if in that review, the medical facts don't match your request, we can not recode and resubmit. That is considered insurance fraud. If in that review, the medical facts do match your request, we are more than happy to send a corrected billing.
How do I apply for Medicaid for my pregnancy?
Just call 356-9218, the State Health & Welfare Department. They will tell you how to obtain an application, and will also give you guidelines for qualifying for the PWC program. We also have applications in our office. The State will set up your appointment once they receive your application.
I am on DMBA student insurance and am pregnant. How do I get an authorization number for my pregnancy?
Call DMBA (1-800-777-3622). They will provide a six-digit authorization number which will activate your insurance for your entire pregnancy. Please bring that number to your visit, so we have it on file.
I just received my Medicaid card in the mail. What do I do with it now?
DON'T LOSE IT! Bring it to your next appointment (if you have one), and we'll copy it for our records. If you don't have a future appointment, call our clinic and give us the seven-digit MID number. You'll also need to call LabCorp (1-800-845-6167) if you've received a bill from them, and provide them with that number. You'll need to take the card with you to the hospital at the time of delivery also.
