|Admissions & Pre-Registration...|
The Registration Office is located in the main lobby of the Medical Center. Patients or their immediate family members are requested to provide insurance and information concerning hospitalization at the Registration Office. We will need a copy of your insurance cards at this time.
If you have a pre-scheduled appointment for admission or for a test, it is important that you arrive at least 15 minutes early to ensure proper time to register. You will be asked to sign a consent form for admission to the hospital and for medical treatment. Federal regulations require hospital personnel to inquire as to the presence of an Advance Directive. This includes a living will and/or a durable power of attorney. Information regarding Advance Directives will be provided to you upon request.
The Registration Office provides pre-registration for all procedures. You may contact us during regular business hours. A Patient Access Specialist will interview you for pertinent information and answer any questions that you have regarding the billing of your procedure. This will ensure accurate and timely filing and payment from your insurance company. On the day of your procedure you will need to stop by registration and sign a consent form for medical treatment and/or admission to the hospital. Make sure that you bring A photo ID, your insurance cards and a signed and dated order from your physician.
Tips to Ensure Timely Registration:
- Bring a photo ID.
- Bring your insurance cards at every visit.
- Bring your signed and dated order form from your physician.
- If your physician's office faxes orders to the medical center as a courtesy, please call prior to your appointment time to make sure we have received it.
- Come at least 15 minutes earlier than your appointment time.
