MMC is Closing :-(

Dear clients,

Despite our best efforts to remain a sustainable, freestanding and midwife-led birth center, Mountain Midwifery Center (MMC) is closing in mid-October. The last babies delivered at MMC will happen on October 13, 2019. We are writing to advise you how we will help you find another maternity provider and resolve your billing. If you cannot birth with us before October 13th, please accept our sincere regrets for not being able to be your birth provider. We are “in this” with you and will work hard to help you transition your care.

TRANSFERRING TO ANOTHER PROVIDER
To support your transfer to another provider, we are distributing a list of practices with midwives with basic information about the practice.

To transfer records, we encourage you to complete a records release from MMC or a records request with the new provider’s name, phone and fax number. Faxing records is more secure than email, less costly than paper and considered more reliable by providers.

SCHEDULING
We are NOT cancelling appointments on or before October 11th. We encourage your to keep your appointment to better coordinate care and transfer records.

BILLING
We will be working over the next few weeks to resolve billing for all our clients. If we owe you a refund for monies paid upfront, we will put you in a list and work on it by batch. When the refund is ready, we will email you to let you know it is in the mail and to confirm the address to which we are sending it.

If you owe us a payment, please pay us in full by the due date. We will accept credit cards, checks, etc. for the remainder of 2019, if not longer. PLEASE PAY YOUR BILL as we will need your payment to pay our staff and to resolve refunds for other clients. We will be working more aggressively with our collections agency and we will no longer be able to engage in multi-month payment plans.

Finally, please accept our heartfelt gratitude for your patronage of our little business. I think we’ve made a big difference in the lives of our clients and maternity care in Colorado. Your trust and support was a vital part of our story.

Best wishes from all the MMC team,
Joel Ryan
