As a parent or guardian, you need to sign medical consent forms when your child is admitted to Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health. These forms give Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health physicians and staff permission to care for your child.
Patient and Family Identification
When admitted, each patient receives an ID wrist band with his or her name. Parents or guardians of patients receive two Riley Hospital for Children at IU HealthFamily Passes. These passes help the staff identify family members. You should wear your pass or have it with you at all times. You must have one on if you stay in the hospital with your child overnight. If you need passes for other family members, please talk with your child's nurse.
Insurance information and Payment Agreement

If your insurance company has prior authorization/certification requirements, you are responsible for notifying them of your child's admission.
You will be asked to sign an agreement permitting us to bill your insurance company and guaranteeing final payment of your child's hospital bill.
