Our admitting staff is here to help you through the registration process for all our hospital services.
Please have your insurance and photo identification cards available and any co-pay amounts that may be due at the time of service.
For Outpatient services, the admitting staff will verify the patient’s insurance eligibility, benefits, and patient financial responsibility at the time of registration. For Emergency room visits this step will wait until after the doctor has completed the medical screening.
If you are coming for services (Physical Therapy, CT, Ultrasound, etc.) that require authorization, a referral must be submitted to your insurance company by your PCP (primary care provider).
Please be advised that each time you receive services at KVHD, you must sign a new consent form.
