During the admission process, you will be asked for a copy of your insurance card, a form of picture identification (e.g., a driver’s license) and a copy of your Advance Healthcare Directive.

You will be asked to sign a Conditions of Admission form. This is your authorization for medical and/or surgical treatment. If you are having surgery, you will also be asked to sign a special consent for your surgery and the administration of anesthetics. If you are a parent for a minor or a legal guardian, you must sign these consent forms.

You will also receive a letter explaining that any physicians’ fees will be billed separately from the hospital bill. This includes bills from such specialists as the pathologist, radiologist, anesthesiologist, cardiologist, etc. These specialists are independent physicians and are not employees of the hospital.

You will then be escorted to your room. If you are having surgery, you will stay in the Surgical Prep Unit. During your hospital stay, if you have any questions regarding your bill, please contact the Admitting Department at 714-771-8185.
