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
