Your insurance company may require certification before you are admitted to the hospital. It is also possible that your insurer may require notification within 24 hours after an emergency admission.
The insurance company may limit the number of days you can stay in the hospital depending on your illness and require that you pay a deductible and/or cover only a percentage of the cost of your hospital stay. If you are not sure about these requirements, we suggest you contact your employer or insurance carrier directly and inform your physician or contact at medi-claim department (Ext. 1010 / 1016).
The hospital’s staff may contact you before your admission to obtain necessary information such as current insurance subscriber name, certificate number, effective date of plan, policy number and company name. The staff may also notify you about any of the estimated charges for which you are responsible.
You will be informed of any payment you should bring with you to the hospital to cover such costs as co-payments, deductibles. These out-of-pocket costs to you are usually collected at the time of discharge. The amount of your payment will depend upon the type of health insurance you have. It is also imperative that you bring your insurance cards or any other medical insurance papers with you when you are admitted.
