Planning for Your Visit

Whether you’re coming to Benefis for a well checkup, a procedure, or hospital stay, we want you to feel prepared and have the best experience possible. Keep these tips in mind for your visit and always ask questions when they arise – you can do this by calling your provider’s office or through your Patient Portal account.

Provider Office Visits

Arrive with photo ID, proof of insurance if applicable, and a list of current medications.


You will receive advance instructions for your outpatient or inpatient procedure, which may include:

  • Stopping certain medications up to a week before your procedure
  • Checking with your insurance company to find out if pre-authorization is required
  • Fasting for a designated period of time before your procedure
  • Planning for a responsible adult to drive you home
  • Completing paperwork or pre-registering for your hospital stay or services
