The person bringing the patient into the office, and who signs our financial agreement, is who we will hold financially responsible for any balances. You may have a divorce decree that states your ex-spouse is responsible for part or all of your dependant’s medical bills, but Mountainland Pediatrics doesn’t have the authority to enforce a divorce decree. It is up to you, your ex-spouse, and the court to work out details and enforcement of a divorce decree. We will send correspondence to the person with whom we have a financial contract. You may forward the statement to your ex-spouse if they require a bill in order to pay their portion, but we do not bill them directly.
