Once you have checked in, you are required to:
Ask for the insurance forms at the admissions area or the emergency area
Complete the form Contact in Case of Accident or Disease as soon as possible and
submit it with the insurance office or the insurance module.
When you receive the physician’s report form from your insurance company, you are required to deliver it to your physician and make sure that your information is correct.
If care is provided by several specialists, please ask that each of them delivers your medical report in time and manner, because if you don’t want your payment to be by way of reimbursement, it is important that said reports be delivered within the first 48 hours of your admission for the authorization to be applicable, otherwise, the bill will be paid by way of reimbursement, and the balance must be paid by the patient, physician’s fees included, and you would then file for reimbursement directly with the insurance company.
DISCHARGE AND FILE
When you are discharged it is important that you verify that the discharge document has been signed by a physician at the nursing station, and check at the insurance office that your file is complete.
When the above procedure is in progress, you must wait in your room until the cash office informs you that your bill is ready.
Once you receive the discharge document, the procedure is as follows:
The Nursing Station will send the required information for the Department of Supplies to close your bill.
Once your bill is closed, the bill will be reviewed with your insurance company for approval and discharge.
The Insurance Department will get a reply from the insurance company with discharge conditions.
This information is submitted to the cash office for your prompt discharge.
Average time is one hour and a half; provided, however, that you have submitted the above information in time and manner. Finally, your insurance company determines and provides the final authorization, so the review time will depend on said information.
