    Insurance Forms  

    • If you have an insurance form or disability forms, etc., to be completed by your Oncologist, please bring them to the 2nd level Health Records Department for completion. Consent will be required to ensure that your physician  has your permission to provide medical information to insurance companies.  The forms can take up to 30 days to be completed. If you require the form sooner than that, please discuss this with the Health Records Team. You will be contacted by the Health Records Team once the form(s) are completed.
