Admissions & Registration at Patients Medical Center

Insurance Pre-Certification

Some insurance companies require pre-certification or authorization 24 hours prior to hospitalization (even for an emergency admission). Special instructions are listed on your insurance card. You may be required to contact the insurance company before you're admitted to the hospital and before you register for any other hospital services.
