Becoming a Patient
Preparing for your appointment
To assist in a smooth check-in process you should bring the following items with you to your next appointment or scheduled procedure:
- Patient's social security number
- Current insurance card
- Valid photo I.D.
- Employment information
- Name of primary care provider
- List of medications the patient is current taking
- Bring a copy of patient's advance directive (if available) for patient record filing purposes
For appointments involving procedures, be sure to contact your insurance company before your visit to meet any pre-authorization requirements. If requirements are not met, the patient's benefits may be reduced leaving the patient responsible for most or all of the hospital bill.
