Starting Jan.29, with just one call to our new Patient Access Service Center, you can:
- Schedule multiple visits
- Learn what your insurance covers
- Get instructions about your diagnostic test or procedure
At the same time, you will also be able to find out what, if any, out-of-pocket expenses apply and if any preparation is required. The facilitator will also advise what time to arrive, where to check-in and what to bring with you.
The local number to reach the CMH Patient Access Service Center is 410-414-APPT (2778). There is also a toll-free number for those calling from work or another location outside the county. That number is 1-855-414-APPT (2778).
In the past, you would have probably had to call several different offices, talked to several different people who would have asked you the same questions over and over again. The new Patient Access Service Center streamlines the entire registration process and eliminates unnecessary duplication.The result is a well-organized system that provides improved access and saves you time.
