Insurance Frequently Asked Questions
Most insurance plans now require that inpatient hospitalization be pre-certified or pre-authorized within 24 hours of admission in order to be eligible for full policy benefits. It is the patient’s or the guarantor’s responsibility to see that this is completed. This information can be found on your insurance card. If you are unsure of pre-certification requirements, we urge you to contact your insurance company as soon as possible. Admitting will verify your benefits with your insurance carrier.
