Registration

To help your registration process flow as smoothly as possible, bring the following items and information with you:

  • All active insurance cards
  • A list of all medications you currently take
  • Photo identification—a picture ID—such as a driver's license
  • Advance directive documents, if you have them, such as a living will or durable power of attorney for healthcare decisions; you can also find advance directive forms and learn how to use them free of charge at the Virginia State Bar Association website
  • HMO/PPO referral forms, if required
  • Medical records or previous test results, if your physician has requested them
  • Written letter of authorization from your insurance carrier, if you're covered by worker's compensation
  • A check or credit card for deductibles, copayments or deposits

Review, complete and bring with you these essential registration forms, available in PDF:

When you arrive for registration, you'll be asked to sign two more important forms—the Consent for Treatment and the Authorization to Bill Insurance. Although we can't guarantee it, we make every effort to assign an in-network physician when one is available to increase the likelihood of insurance coverage.

Reporting Your Progress to Continue Insurance

Most insurers require that hospitals and other healthcare providers keep them informed about patient progress and the prescribed treatment plan so insurance benefits can continue. With this approach, you're assured of care that's constantly reviewed and improved and that our staff efficiently provides the necessary communication.
