Follow your doctor’s instructions about where to check in. You may always check in at the main admitting desk if you are not sure where else to go.
The check-in process will take about 15 minutes. You will speak with a Patient Access representative who will:
Review your insurance information
Check your photo ID
Update your records, if necessary
Collect any co-pay or deductible
Complete regulatory forms (Terms and Conditions of Service and Privacy Notice)
For your protection, we may ask the same questions at each visit to ensure our records are accurate.
Why we ask for photo ID
People often ask why we need to see photo ID. We do for two reasons. We are required by federal law to verify patients' identity. We are also concerned about protecting you from medical identity theft. Medical identity theft is using someone else’s personal information to obtain medical services.
