Health First Cancer Institute encourages patients to bring all recent, pertinent medical records, including:

  • A letter from the local provider summarizing the medical condition
  • A complete record of immunizations to date
  • Copies of medical record information from health care providers outside of Health First Cancer Institute
  • All radiologic films, CDs, DVDs, videos and written radiologic reports related to the clinical question
  • All pathology slides and written pathology reports from relevant biopsies

Generally, patients obtain their medical records from their providers. If additional records are needed once you are here, Health First Cancer Institute can contact your provider. You'll be asked to sign a consent form to release your records.

Health First Cancer Institute routinely submits claims to insurance carriers. Please contact your insurance company to verify medical coverage and to obtain any needed authorization prior to your visit. Often, your insurer's customer service number is printed on the back of your insurance card.
