Pre-Registration

Be sure to read all of the instructions BEFORE starting your Fast Track Pre-Registration Process!

University Hospital is pleased to offer our patients a convenient online pre-registration service. This service will allow us to verify all demographic and insurance information prior to your visit, so that all of your paperwork is completed, thus decreasing your wait time when you arrive for your procedure, test or surgery. Please remember that all copayments, deductibles and any other patient responsibilities are due prior to or at the time of service.

Pre-Registration will benefit you by:

  • Allowing us to communicate with your insurance company to verify benefits and eligibility, start pre-certification, obtain referrals and pre-authorization (if needed), and resolve any insurance concerns before your service date
  • Informing you of financial obligations beforehand so you can plan for the unexpected
  • Eliminating discharge delays by letting you pay deductibiles, co-pays and co-insurance before your service. We are able to take your credit card payment in advance over the phone. This will allow you to establish a good credit record and avoid confusion when presented with a bill months after leaving the hospital.

Ways to Pre-register: All pre-registrations must be completed at least 48 hours (two business days) in advance
If your physician has scheduled you for a procedure, test, surgery or if you are pregnant, you have two pre-registration options. Submit your information online via the secure form here or call the Pre-Registration Line at 706/774-2125, Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Please register at least two business days prior to your hospital visit.
