Information on arrival
When you come for your appointment, the Patient Access Department staff may request identification and will obtain general written consent for treatment/services from you. In addition, we'll collect financial information from you so that we may accurately bill you or your insurance for services rendered. We’ll also advise you of your rights and responsibilities as a patient under state law, offer you a copy of our Notice of Privacy Practices as required by federal law, and inform you of your rights and obligations as a Medicare or Tricare beneficiary (where applicable).
What to prepare in advance
Whenever you visit your physician or APD for services, please:
- Bring your insurance card(s) with you
- Notify us if have a new address or telephone number
- Be prepared to pay your co-payment
