Information for Your Patients

If patients have questions about appointments, insurance and billing, or international services, direct them to Contact Mayo Clinic for specific phone numbers for those areas.

Patient registration

  • An individual registration number is given to each patient at Mayo Clinic. This number should be used for all clinic communications regarding your patient.
  • We suggest that you keep a record of your patient's Mayo Clinic registration number for easy future reference.
  • If a patient has previously been assigned a Mayo Clinic registration number, that original number will continue to be used.


  • We recommend that patients contact their insurance providers to verify benefit and eligibility for services provided by Mayo Clinic.
  • Our staff will file your patient's primary insurance and assist patients in filing any supplemental insurance claims.
  • Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic hospitals are in-network for many insurance plans.
  • Mayo Clinic does not accept Medicare assignment, so payments will be made directly to the patient.
