Pre-Certification

Many insurance plans have pre-certification requirements. Generally, you or your physician is responsible for obtaining pre-certification. Most insurance companies will not accept pre-certifications from the hospital.

To avoid penalties or reduction of payments, for which you will be responsible, call your insurance carrier or employer for specific information.
