As a research and teaching hospital, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of major clinical advances. We are always looking to provide better treatments, medicines and ways of delivering care. But we also know the value of the human touch, and how vitally important it is to helping people heal. To make your stay as comfortable as we can, we have put together this directory. It contains useful information about services available to you and your family. If you have any questions, please ask any of your healthcare providers. Your comments and suggestions are important to us.

Please wash your hands often during your stay, and ask your visitors to do so as well. If family members are unwell, please ask them not to visit you while in hospital.

Preparing for Your Appointment Admitting & Registration Your Blue Hospital Card

On the day of your first appointment, you will need to get a blue hospital card. Bring your blue hospital card to every appointment at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto General Hospital and Toronto Western Hospital. If you already have a blue card from a previous visit to any of these 3 hospitals, you do not need a new blue card. If you need to go to a different hospital, such as Mount Sinai or Women’s College Hospital, you will need to get their hospital card.

What you need to get a blue hospital card

• Your government issued health card (OHIP card) • A piece of identification with your address on it, like your passport or driver’s license • The name, address and phone number of your family doctor (if you have one) • The name, address and phone number of your emergency contact person • Your health insurance policy number (if you have one).

Where to get your blue hospital card

At the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, you can get your blue card at your clinic reception desk when you go to check in for your appointment. If you lose or damage your blue hospital card, you can get a new one from the Princess Margaret, Toronto General Hospital or Toronto Western Hospital. If any of your personal information changes, you need to tell us. We will update your information and give you a new card..

Billing and Other Charges

During your stay, you should expect to pay for some things that are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) or your insurance companies.

15

Preparing For Your Appointment

www.uhnpatienteducation.ca

Preparing For Your Appointment

• Walking aids such as crutches, canes, or walkers • Ambulance transportation services Make sure the Billing Department is aware of your OHIP or any other insurance coverage you may have. This information should have been collected when you are admitted. If the hospital does not receive your OHIP number when you are admitted, you may be billed the full uninsured amount. The hospital will keep track of the charges and bill you when you go home.

Inpatient Room Upgrades

Ontario residents are covered by OHIP and are entitled to standard unit care. This means, you can stay overnight at the hospital in a room with 4 or more beds without paying. You can upgrade your room to semi-private (2 beds in a room) or private (1 bed in a room) for a fee. The hospital cannot always meet a request for a semiprivate or private room. If your choice of room is not available when you are admitted, you will be moved into one as soon as one is available. You will be required to sign a room request form and provide a credit card imprint for any balances not covered by your insurance. If you have private insurance, it may cover some or all of the upgrade cost. If not, you will have to pay the extra daily charges. Please check your insurance coverage before you are admitted to the hospital. Contact: 416-340-3060 for information on paying for an upgraded room, or questions about the rooms.

Where can I pay my hospital bills?
