Most Insurance Companies require patients to notify them within 24 hours of being admitted to a hospital. In order to fulfill the requirements set forth by your insurance company, please review your insurance card to determine if you must notify your insurance company about your hospital admission.
Note: Failure to notify your insurance company immediately upon admission to the hospital may result in either your benefits being reduced or a financial penalty imposed upon you by your insurance company. Please be advised if your insurance company requires a co-payment or deductible for your hospital services, the hospital will expect this payment at the time of your admission.
To complete the Discharge Process, please stop at the Cashier’s Office on the first floor upon discharge.
