Patient Registration and Financial Guidelines

Please complete the Maternity Pre-Admission Form (pdf) and the Parent Worksheet for Birth Certificates (pdf). Send to Newton-Wellesley Hospital, Attention: Maternity Registration, during the second trimester of your pregnancy. If an update is needed, please contact Maternity Registration at 617-243-6339. This will avoid any delay in admitting you to your room when you arrive in the labor unit. If you have any questions or changes in your registration information, including your name, phone number, address, employer, or your health care insurance company, please contact Maternity Registration at 617-243-6339.

Advance Directives
By state law we are required to ask our maternity patients if they have an advance directive. You will be asked if you have one when you register at our Maternity Center registration desk. For your convenience, registration staff have copies of the Guide to Advance Directives, which explains how to use the health care directive (living will) and health care power of attorney to plan for health care decisions. Please bring copies of these completed forms with you when you return to the hospital to have your baby.

Insurance
Most insurance plans require that you add your new baby to your insurance within the first 30 days of birth. Many plans also require that you choose a physician for your baby within this time frame as well.
