Day Surgery at WakeMed Cary Hospital
A few days before your surgery, a Patient Account Representative from Patient Registration may call you to obtain pre-registration information. Our Patient Account Representative will ask you for both personal and financial information.
Please have all of your information available, including policy numbers and claims addresses for health insurance coverage. Depending on your insurance coverage, you may be asked for a deposit. A nurse may also call you a week before surgery to discuss your medical history and plan of care.
