Before Your Stay

Admission

Your admission to Iredell Memorial will be directed by your physician who is a member of the hospital's medical staff. Our admitting staff will discuss certain hospital procedures, obtain demographic and insurance information, and will assist you in your room accommodations.

If you are covered by insurance, it is always a good idea to be familiar with your insurance plan and/or contact your insurance carrier before coming to the hospital. Understanding your referral, authorization, and financial requirements will help avoid any potential delays or issues.

When you arrive to be admitted, you will be asked a number of questions by our admitting personnel. This information is necessary to ensure that you receive personalized care and appropriate treatment. We will make this as brief as possible and we appreciate your cooperation. Our computerized registration system will retain this information, making future visits even more convenient.

The admitting staff will discuss the hospital policy on insurance filing and other methods of paying your bill. Please be sure to bring your insurance identification card, Medicare card, Medicaid card and any other pertinent information, including primary physician, authorization, and precertification insurance requirements.

If your physician has already scheduled your admission, you may pre-register here.
