Department of International Patient Services
The International Patient Services Department works closely with international patients who travel to UAMS seeking medical care to ensure that they receive the best treatment while they are here.
As your first contact, we assist you with the following:
- Connecting you with the appropriate clinic and health care representative to investigate your options, review medical records, and schedule an appointment.
- Providing assistance for some of the unique needs international patients incur while traveling to and residing in our city. View a full list of all our services.
- Providing you with the estimated medical costs, deposit requirements, and also establishing all financial arrangements between you and UAMS regarding your initial evaluation and subsequent surgery and/or treatment. Our International Financial Manager will manage your account and maintain communication with you on a regular basis.
The mission of the International Patient Services Department is to facilitate a prompt and seamless appointment process without delays. From the moment you contact us with your health care needs, we will act as your liaison connecting you to the appropriate clinic and doctor. We will be your personal information resource throughout your UAMS visit.
It is the intent of International Patient Services to provide support to you and the pertinent information you require throughout every step of the decision-making process. We also provide contact and financial information to you and your family whether you want to schedule an appointment or investigate your options.
