Patient Registration Form is a tool to acquire important information about the patient. This form also helps in defining the roles of the insurance coverage provider. The patient must handover the insurance card to the receptionist prior to admission in the hospital.
Filling all details and making selections as and when required is very necessary. Please review this form carefully to understand the nature of information it seeks from you. You as a patient or guardian of the patient must undertake the responsibility for payment of the balance due after insurance company’s direct payment to the physician. Signing this form also authorizes the insurance company and/or the hospital to release any required information to process your insurance claim.
