We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Pre-Verification and referrals
Most insurance plans require you to obtain a referral from your primary care physician, and/or an authorization or pre-certification that provides the proof that the services you will be receiving at the hospital are approved. If this type of approval applies to you, then you will be asked for one or more of the following:
PCP phone number
Referral expiration date
If you are not covered by an insurance plan, you or a family member can contact our financial counselors prior to your visit. A counselor will help you determine alternative sources of funding and/or payment options.
Pre-verification of your benefits should take place prior to your admission and outpatient services. If you are treated in the Emergency Department, verification of benefits will occur prior to discharge when at all possible.
Insurance co-payments and deductibles will be collected at the time of service. If you are an HMO patient or patient participating in a managed care program, you must provide a written authorization or a referral from your HMO or primary care physician at the time of service.
Please note that many insurance companies require pre-certification prior to services being rendered. It is important to familiarize yourself with your benefit requirements to be sure that you receive maximum reimbursement from your carrier.
