Your Insurance Plan
Many changes have taken place in the health insurance industry in recent years. Procedures and services once covered in full are now partially covered, covered only under certain circumstances or in some cases, not covered at all. Every insurance plan is different; please be sure to check your insurance and ask questions before coming to the hospital. Many insurance plans and health maintenance organizations (HMOs) now require pre-admission approval and/or second opinion for certain procedures. For your own peace of mind, we advise that you know the benefits of your insurance plan.
Insurance Cards and Forms
Having your insurance information readily available will facilitate processing your admission and billing questions. During your hospital stay, if Patient Registration did not get copies of your insurance cards at Pre-admission testing or Admission, please provide them with the information in order to avoid billing problems. It is important for all patients to sign numerous documents. Insurance regulations dictate that certain forms be signed for each admission for payment to be made
