Why Am I Getting a Statement from Trinity for a Visit That I Had at the T.H. Reiarson Rural Health Clinic?
A visit with your provider in the clinic could produce three different statements, depending on what you had done during your visit. The doctor’s visit will be billed through our clinic (Mountrail County Medical Clinic) electronic health records, Athena Health. But if you have any testing, lab or radiology completed during this visit, this will be billed through the hospital (Mountrail County Medical Center) electronic health records, Patient Co.
The Mountrail County Medical Center has a full in-house lab and radiology department that is here for your lab and X-ray needs. This includes CT, X-Rays, blood work, urine and EKGs. Pap smears, biopsies and certain specialty testing completed during your visit at the clinic are sent out to Trinity or even Mayo, if needed.
All X-Rays taken at MCMC are sent to Trinity’s radiology department to be read by a radiologist. All blood smears taken at MCMC are sent to Trinity’s pathology department to be read by a pathologist. All EKGs/ECGs taken at MCMC are sent to Trinity’s cardiology department to be read by a cardiologist. This partnership with Trinity leads to a billing statement for these services from Trinity anytime any of the above occurs.
If you should have any questions on any of this please contact MCMC. We thank you for your continued support. Nobody takes care of you like your own.
