No, it is not. The hospital will do its best to see when you arrive, but if there are sicker patients ahead of you, they may be seen first.
Nothing. Online check-in is absolutely free for patients.
Check-in Express is free for everyone. It does not matter what insurance you have or whether you do not have any.
There is a 15 minute grace period. If you are later than that time frame, you may lose your spot in line.
If you are feeling worse, do NOT wait for your reservation. Go to the Emergency Department immediately. If you feel that your condition is 'life threatening', call 911 right away.
You will be seen by a healthcare professional who will evaluate your condition and decide on the best course of action for you. You may be seen by a nurse, physician, physician assistant, or some other combination of healthcare professionals.
Call the CMC ER, and tell them that you are canceling your Check-in Express reservation.
Simply go online and make a new reservation. The system will automatically cancel your old one.
