Patient Registration

The registration process helps us update your current information and ensure your address, birth date, insurance and other information are correct so your medical record and bills are handled smoothly and accurately. Please be sure to provide the complete insurance information for all of your plans during registration. You may also need to pay deductibles or co-payments at registration.

Register Ahead of Time

Johns Hopkins hospitals allow patients to register before the admission date to save time at admission. Once you are scheduled for an outpatient procedure or an inpatient admission, a representative from your hospital’s Admissions Department will contact you to verify your information.

Please be prepared to provide:

  • Your full name (exactly as it appears on your driver's license and/or government-issued ID)
  • Address
  • Telephone numbers
  • Primary and secondary contact information
  • Complete insurance information from all of your plans
  • Name and telephone number of your primary care physician

Many procedures require insurance preauthorization, which needs to be completed at least two days before your scheduled procedure. If you are scheduled for surgery, you will receive an additional call from a nurse to discuss your procedure before your appointment.
