If You Have Health Insurance
If you have health insurance please be sure to bring a copy of your insurance identification card when you register for services at Kanakanak Hospital or any of BBAHC's clinics.

If You Are Covered by Medicare
BBAHC will need a copy of your Medicare card to verify your eligibility and to process your Medicare claim. Medicare is a federal program that generally covers those 65 or older, certain people on Social Security disability and some people with permanent kidney failure. Medicare can provide basic coverage for hospital stays, doctor and laboratory costs, and can include medical equipment and physical therapy.

If you have Medicare Part D (pharmacy coverage), we will also need a copy of the insurance card as that information is not listed on your regular Medicare card. For more information, you can access the Medicare website at

If You Are Covered by Medicaid or Denali KidCare
As with other health coverage we require a copy of your Medicaid card. Medicaid covers low-income and financially needy people, including those over 65 who are also on Medicare. Generally, Medicaid covers services and costs Medicare does not (this might include prescription drugs, diagnostic and preventive care and eyeglasses).

Denali KidCare provides health insurance coverage for children and teens through age 18 (and for pregnant women who meet income guidelines) at no cost. Denali KidCare children and teens receive a full range of prevention and treatment services including: vision exams & eyeglasses, dental checkups, hearing tests, mental health therapy, substance abuse treatment, prescriptions and medical transportation.
