Provide your insurance or payment information
At some point during your care, we will collect your insurance information and obtain a copy of your insurance card so payment for your visit may be arranged.
If you do not have insurance, please let us know and a variety of payment options can be discussed.
Pay co-payment, deductible or deposit
Co-payments, deductibles or deposits on your account will be taken by one of our patient relations assistants near the end of your visit.
Please be patient
Please understand that some people who arrive after you may be seen before you.
Emergency visits are not like doctor’s office visits. There are no scheduled appointments. Instead, patients are seen in different areas based on the type of illness or injury they have.
In order to protect your privacy and safety of you and all of our patients, the number of family members and visitors for each patient must be limited. Once you are taken to a room, you may have two family members / visitors in your room at one time. Children should remain in the waiting area with a responsible adult.
