What is an Anti-Coagulation Clinic?
The Anti-Coagulation Management Clinic (AMC) is sometimes referred to as the “Coumadin Clinic.” The AMC is staffed by Registered Nurses, who are certified to monitor anti-coagulation therapy. These nurses provide INR testing and manage the blood thinner medications (Warfarin/Coumadin) your medical provider has prescribed for you to prevent blood clots.
Why has an Anti-Coagulation Management Clinic been established?
National Patient Safety Standards have been established that recognize the need for the safe management of anti-coagulation therapy. Many healthcare facilities throughout Montana are now providing services through clinics specializing in anticoagulation therapy.
What is the cost?
AMC visits are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurances plans. Please check with your individual insurance provider or with the Northern Montana Hospital Business Office to see how your plan’s deductibles and/or co-pays may apply.
You may contact the Business Office at (406) 262-1264 if you have any questions about coverage. We look forward to being of service to you!
