A few days before your procedure, 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 the day before your procedure to discuss your medical history and plan of care.

We will call you back with an estimate for your hospital bill, but please be aware that this is only an estimate.  Your actual bill will be determined by the services your physician orders for you.  After your procedure, questions about your bill should be directed to Claims & Billing at 919-350-8359.

If your name has changed, please bring a picture ID for verification.

Remember to contact your insurance company prior to your procedure to determine if pre-certification or a second opinion is required.
