Opulence’s medical staff work in collaboration with each other and cross reference knowledge between them specific to their role in the ongoing care of the health for that patient to optimize care, and it includes the roles of other medical providers, and non-physician support staff, in providing such care. Both Liz McCarthy, Family NP and Hailey Seedall, Women’s Health NP oversee and provide the medical care at Opulence. Both Patty, Medical Assistant, and Amy Johnson, L.E. are trained to do various tasks to provide and assist with specific medical care but the authorization of medications and all medical orders are decided by decisions via Liz and Hailey as the two clinic NP providers.
Montana is 1 of 13 states that identifies nurse practitioners as independent medical providers. In this capacity, both Elizabeth and Hailey have full autonomy as nurse practitioners to provide medical care. Their advanced education and professional experience allows them to work independently without practice limitations and without the oversight of a physician.
Both Elizabeth & Hailey are contracted with most major third party payor insurance plans as
‘in-network providers’ which can be confirmed by contacting your insurance customer relations & information department located on the back of your insurance card.
Regardless of insurance carrier, every patient is required to pay a $25 co-payment / payment toward their visit on the day of appointment with the exception being the visit for annual wellness exam. The $25 value will be applied toward the patient balance which remains post insurance claim return. This standard of practice matches an ideal of good faith toward the excellent care you will receive every visit. Non-copay payments will be applied to balances due by our medical billing service.
Medical claims and payment questions are best answered by our billing specialist named
Ryan O’Connell and his team @ Aspen Medical Billing Solutions in Helena, Montana. Together this team of professionals forms a framework within which patients will have access to efficient and effective primary care services of the highest quality.
