Before your child comes to St. Louis Children’s Hospital, someone from our staff will contact you to pre-register.
Once you are pre-registered, you will be able to check-in at the Same Day Surgery unit on the day of your visit. You will check-in at Same Day Surgery for both an inpatient visit and outpatient visit.
Most insurance plans require that a patient be pre-approved (or pre-authorized) before going to the hospital for procedures or surgery.
As part of pre-registration, our staff will coordinate with your physician to meet the requirements of your insurance plan.
If you have any questions regarding pre-approval, contact your insurance company or primary care physician.
