Inpatient Admissions

You or your family will need to provide personal and insurance information at the time of your admission. You will be asked to sign an Authorization Form which is a General Condition of admission, Consent Form, Assignment of Benefits, and Financial Agreement. An identification bracelet will be placed on your wrist at this time. This identification bracelet is for your safety, please do not remove.

Outpatient Registration

Trigg County Hospital's registration is located near the main hospital entrance, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. outpatient registration begins at the Information Desk. If you arrive for an outpatient visit during after hours please report to the nurses' station. In order to expedite your registration, please bring all paperwork from your physician. Please provide your current insurance information and at least one photo ID. Arrive 15-20 minutes ahead of your appointment time to register. Once your registration is complete you will be asked to wait in the lobby while the department is notified of your arrival.

Depending on the procedure you are having performed, some insurance companies require a pre-certification or prior authorization. This pre-certification is obtained by the referring doctor's office. As part of the insurance plan requirements, your insurance company may not pay for the procedure if a pre-certification is not approved prior to the start of the procedure. For your ease and convenience, please check with your doctor's office to verify that the pre-certification or prior authorization has been obtained if required.
