What should I send in?

  • Completed and signed pre-admission form
  • A copy of your driver's license or a state ID
  • Copies of the front and back of all health insurance cards
Please mail to:
Northwest Community Hospital
Attn: Registration Department
800 W. Central Road Arlington Heights, IL 60005

Anything else I should do?

  • We recommend you review your insurance benefits with your carrier ahead of time and be aware if pre-authorization or notification upon admission is required. Many insurance companies require pre-certification for hospital admissions. Failure to obtain pre-certification may result in your insurance company reducing the benefit paid—in other words, making you responsible for a greater portion of your hospital bill.
  • Should you have any questions about your hospital bill, please call NCH at 847.618.1000 and ask to speak with a financial counselor. Financial assistance, package pricing and payment plans may be available; a Financial Counselor can assist you with your planning at 847.618.4542.

What about my baby's insurance coverage?

  • After you deliver, you will need to add your baby to your insurance
  • You can do this from the hospital by calling the phone number on the back of your insurance card
  • We know, it seems like this should happen automatically, but in our experience it does not

Do I still need to bring my insurance card to the hospital?

Yes! Please bring your insurance card(s) and a picture ID, such as a driver's license, so we can verify and update our information

Where should we park when we come to the hospital?
