Patient Resources

How do I become a patient?

We would love to have you join the Mountainlands Community!

The easiest way to become a Mountainlands patient is to give us a call 801-429-2000.  We will ask you a few short questions and then you can schedule an appointment in the same phone call.  Walk-in patients may also register as a patient with a receptionist.

  • A deposit may be required when scheduling your visit.

 

What do I bring to my appointment?

If you are insured, you should bring your insurance card to every appointment.

For all uninsured patients, you will be required to provide proof of income when you first become a patient and again every year in order to qualify for the sliding fee scale. This scale is based on household income and family size.

 

The following items may be used as proof of income:

  • Last month’s check stubs

  • State unemployment funding information

  • State disability funding information

  • Last year’s tax return or tax statement

  • W-2's

If the patient being seen is a child of any age, please bring the child’s immunization record to the appointment. This will allow our staff to ensure that your child is up to date on their immunizations.

Please call 801-429-2000 with any further questions.

Why should I have health insurance?

No one plans to get sick or hurt, but most people need medical care at some point. Health insurance covers these costs and offers many other important benefits.

1.  Health insurance protects you from unexpected, high medical costs.

It’s easy to underestimate how much medical care can cost.  Having health coverage can help protect you from high, unexpected costs like:

  • Fixing a broken leg can cost up to $7,500

  • The average cost of a 3-day hospital stay is around $30,000

  • Comprehensive cancer care can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars

2.  You pay less for covered in-network health care, even before you meet your deductible.

Insurance companies negotiate their rates with providers and you’ll pay that discounted rate. People without insurance pay, on average, twice as much for care.

3.  You get free preventive care, like vaccines, screenings, and check-ups, even before you meet your deductible.

If you’re not enrolled in an insurance plan you don’t get these important free benefits, which can identify disease early and support good health.
