Email your completed pre-registration form and a clear front and back copy of your insurance card(s) to the OB admitting team at one of the locations below:

After hospital staff receives your pre-registration, you'll get an email confirmation. A staff member will contact you to finalize your pre-registration and go over information provided by your insurance company. It's a good idea to review your insurance coverage and benefit information beforehand so you understand what your plan coverage includes. In addition, it's important to contact your insurance company to see how to add your baby to your insurance policy as quickly as possible after you deliver.
