What is Seattle Children’s Pediatric Cardiology of Montana?

Seattle Children’s Pediatric Cardiology of Montana provides the highest-quality heart care to Montana’s children and young adults. Our clinic is in Great Falls with outreach clinics in Bozeman and Helena.

Our providers live in Montana and are part of Seattle Children’s Heart Center, the most comprehensive pediatric heart care service in the Northwest. This means your child has access to all of Seattle Children’s services, from fetal diagnosis to heart surgery to cardiac care for young adults.

We believe that Pediatric Cardiology of Montana and referring community providers are partners in the care of Montana’s youth.

Scheduling an Appointment With Pediatric Cardiology of Montana

  • If you would like a referral to Pediatric Cardiology of Montana, talk to your child’s primary care provider. Having a referral will make insurance authorization easier for you, and it will make it easier for us to coordinate with your doctor.
  • We will typically call you to schedule your appointment 1 or 2 business days after your primary care provider sends us your referral.
  • If you have not heard from us within 2 business days, call 406-771-3223 to schedule an appointment for all locations.
    • Important things to do before the appointment
      • Learn about Seattle Children’s facility charges (which apply at our Bozeman location but not Great Falls or Helena), your bill and Seattle Children’s financial counseling services and financial assistance program. For a cost estimate, call Seattle Children’s at 206-987-3333.
      • Call your insurance company for coverage questions. Your plan may have a preferred provider list.
      • If your plan requires a referral from your primary care provider, have them fax it to us at 406-452-5262. Make sure we receive the insurance referral at least 4 days before your visit, or we may need to cancel or reschedule. You can also call Seattle Children’s Insurance Processing Department at 206-987-5757 for help.
      • Get any needed legal papers. Birth or adoptive parents do not need to bring a birth certificate or any other legal papers. If you are a legal guardian, we will need to see the legal papers that say so. If you are the parent but do not have legal custody, we will need to see the legal papers that allow you to make healthcare decisions for your child.
      • Arrange childcare for siblings. The length and nature of your visit may make it difficult for young children to attend. If children attend, we recommend bringing another adult to supervise.

      • Let us know about cultural beliefs , language or unique needs that may affect your child’s treatment and care. We offer free interpreters for Deaf and hard-of-hearing, and non-English languages. We should have arranged them when you scheduled.

    • Paperwork, insurance card and other things to remember the day of the appointment
      • Allow 5 to 10 minutes for parking and check-in. Visits usually take 1.5 to 2 hours.

You may also want to bring snacks and a change of clothes.
