Latest News

  • Ebola Screening

    Nov 03, 2014
    While we feel the risk of there being someone in Juneau with Ebola is very unlikely, we are following CDC screening guidelines. When you call for an appointment to be seen for an illness, the staff will be asking if you have recently travelled to West Africa or been around someone with confirmed Ebola disease. If you have, we will have you speak to a nurse immediately to continue the screening process.
    If you are concerned about possible Ebola exposure, please call the office--do not come to the office unless instructed by a nurse or doctor. Also, if you think you may have Ebola symptoms and our office is closed, do not go to the hospital Emergency Department without first calling them and speaking with a nurse to be screened.
  • CDL (Commercial Driver License Physicals)

  • Alaska Care/Aetna Insurance Concerns

    Apr 01, 2014
    We have received a number of calls from our patients regarding concerns about the new Alaska Care/Aetna insurance coverage. We have been advised by the State that patients with concerns/complaints can send an email to the State of Alaska Division of Retirement and Benefits at doa.drb.mscc@alaska.gov and explain their issue and it will be forwarded to a supervisor.
    The e-mail should contain the following information: patient full name, patient date of birth, Aetna ID number, contact phone number, return e-mail address, explanation of the issue, and explanation of medical necessity.
    The Division of Retirement is HIPAA compliant and all communication will be confidential.

    Mar 17, 2014
    All lab tests that need to be sent to an outside lab will now be billed directly by Lab Corp. Please make sure your insurance and contact information is up to date so we have the correct information to forward to them. Any bills you receive from them should be paid directly to Lab Corp. Please contact them with any questions about your bill at 800-676-8033.
  • Valley Medical Care Hospitalist System (for patients)

    Sep 13, 2013
     Valley Medical Care utilizes a hospitalist system for caring for patients who are hospitalized at Bartlett Regional Hospital. There will only be one physician available at the hospital at any given time, so if you are hospitalized, you may be cared for by a doctor who is not your primary provider. This system is widely used in the rest of the country. There are many benefits to this system for all of us. Doctors won't be called away from the clinic to attend to hospital emergencies nearly as often, making us more available during clinic hours. This should reduce the times that you are asked to reschedule appointments and should improve our efficiency in the office.
    We strive to offer the best care that we can to our patients and at this time, feel that this change is necessary to continue to do so.
    We thank you for allowing us to participate in your health care.
  • Doula Program Update

    Jul 29, 2013
    Valley Medical Care is excited to work with the Juneau Community Doula Network to promote doula care for our expecting families. Doulas are trained professionals who provide physical, emotional and informational support to expectant parents, during the pregnancy, birth and postpartum period. Doulas work directly with families to establish a supportive connection that research shows improves birth experiences for families and may shorten labors and reduce complications.
    In an effort to promote doula care for our Valley Medical Care families, we have established a scholarship program to provide financial support to families who cannot afford independent doula care on their own. So far we have assisted 16 families. You can find more information on Doula care online at www.dona.org or www.juneaudoulas.org. For information on the Valley Medical Care doula scholarship, please contact Rachel Gladhart, CNM at 586-2434 or ask about it at your prenatal appointment.
