Instructions for scheduling patients

Please follow these steps:

  1. Fill out the updated DTS order.
  2. The ICD-10 codes can be obtained from the provider managing the care.
  3. A provider with admitting privileges must be included on the order.
  4. Email the order document. Please include ‘confidential’ in the subject line to ensure the email is secure.
  5. Following our current process, the precertification number must be provided by the referring office prior to therapy.
  6. In the case of a blood transfusion, biologic or chemotherapy order, verification of a signed informed consent must be presented with the precertification. No patient with an order for blood transfusion, biologic, or chemotherapy infusion will be scheduled or treated without informed consent verification.
  7. If same day add on, please email the order and call (574) 364-2963 for approval and to confirm arrival time.
  8. The DTS order will be reviewed. Once accepted, the infusion center scheduling department will call the ordering provider’s office with an appointment date and time. For the initial infusion center visit, the ordering provider’s office is responsible for informing the patient of the scheduled date and time. Subsequent visits (if needed) will be communicated with the patient by the infusion center scheduling department.
  9. If an incomplete DTS order is received, the infusion center scheduling department will notify the provider’s office for completion before acceptance of the order or scheduling of the patient.

As a reminder, all patients must have scheduled appointments. Walk-in services are not accepted.
