Patient Access

Patient Access

Humboldt General Hospital's Patient Access Department is designed to help patients circumvent the many barriers-financial, logistical and social-that make it difficult to use the healthcare system. The department is the brainchild of HGH Administrative Director Pam Wickkiser who saw patient stress significantly decrease for imaging patients when she added a patient navigator to her staff. That person was able to discuss costs with patients, secure pre-approvals from insurance companies and schedule appointments at the most convenient times possible. Now those services are available to all patients. Visit with a Patient Access representative to discuss estimated costs, insurance coverage, Medicare and Medicaid, and any other qualifying funding programs. Our reps can also help you complete applications, discuss current bills, payment plans, and simply act as patient advocates.
