Admitting privilege is the right granted to a doctor to admit patients to a particular hospital. The issue of admitting privilege can become a tricky situation if a patient is seeing an in-network doctor and plans to continue to see that doctor for an inpatient treatment, but the doctor only has admitting privileges at hospitals that aren’t in the patient’s insurance network. If you’re planning an inpatient procedure, you’ll want to ensure that the hospital, and any doctors who will treat you, are all in your insurance plan’s network.
