Many insurance plans require pre-authorization for hospital admissions and certain outpatient procedures and services.
The Preregistration Department starts the process to obtain prior approval and pre-certification when necessary. If your insurance provider denies coverage for a scheduled procedure or service, the scheduling physician will be notified.
If your insurance provider requires you to pay a deductible or co-payment, this amount is due at the time of service.
Patients may be requested to pay for services at time of registration if services are not covered or the insurance cannot be billed. In this situation, we encourage patients to discuss their arrangements with a financial counselor. Learn more about paying your bill.
