Required Documentation for Enrollment Screening
Specific documentation is required to properly screen you and your family for health insurance, charity care and financial assistance programs. There are several documents that can be used for each requirement and documents that are acceptable for one program may not apply to all. We recommend that you bring the document that can be used for every program, if possible, to every appointment. Without the required documents, we will not be able to complete a full screening of all options.
