Insurance Instructions

After you schedule your appointment, a representative from Stanford Hospital & Clinics (SHC) will contact you to collect demographic and insurance information. We will verify that SHC accepts your insurance and collect any required authorizations. If we are unable to contact you before your appointment, please call the clinic directly to provide your insurance information. The clinic phone number will be included in your email appointment confirmation.

If you would like to verify that your insurance is accepted at SHC prior to your appointment, please contact your insurance provider directly. If you have an HMO insurance plan, please obtain from your insurance provider, prior to your appointment, a written authorization to be seen at SHC. If your insurance benefits do not cover your visit, you will be asked to sign a Patient Acceptance of Financial Responsibility form upon arrival and submit payment upon receipt of your bill.
