Registration and Admission
Each patient visit at HHCC starts with a check-in with our customer service team at the front desk. (Note: If there is an emergency, patients go straight to the emergency room for care.) One form of identification is needed at the time of check in; acceptable forms include a state identification card, certificate of Indian blood, and/or proof of health insurance (if applicable). If a patient is experiencing pain and a qualified medical provider deems care to be an emergency, the patient will be seen immediately but a licensed health care professional.
Insurance and Managed Care
If a patient is covered under a health insurance plan, the hospital will take all insurance information (including Medicaid, Medicare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, etc.) for billing and reimbursement. All qualified American Indian patients who do not have health insurance, can receive care at the Hopi Critical Assess Hospital at no cost to them. If specialized services are needed (i.e. treatment for aggressive cancer), the patient will be referred out to a specialized medical provider. If the patient does not have health insurance, a contact from our Purchased and Referred Care office will follow-up with the patient.
Access to Patient Public Health Record
The HHCC assures the strictest confidentiality of all patient care, services, and information. Patients may request copies of their health care files by written request. This request must be submitted to the Medical Records Department, which is open to the general public from 8:00-5:00PM, Monday through Friday.
