In certain situations insurance information is necessary to ensure prior authorization is received. A patient placement representative will arrange for bed assignment if a bed is available or will place the patient on a waiting list. If a direct admit is in advance of a procedure, the placement representative keeps the information until the procedure date, but providers should keep in mind there may be delays due to patient census.
