ATTENTION ALL PATIENTS
Due to the fact that there are many different programs for each insurance company, it has become almost impossible for the office to keep track of each patient’s policy. You, as the policyholder, are responsible for obtaining the information needed prior to your visit. You can confirm your benefits by speaking to your insurance representative. Please, read and sign the following:
I understand and accept any requirements or limitations placed upon me by my specific Managed Care Organization or Insurance Plan. I am responsible for any medical or surgical deductible and/or co-insurance stated in my insurance plan. I understand that I am solely responsible to know such limitations and requirements in order to receive medical services in your specialty office. It is my responsibility to:
● obtain all necessary referrals/authorizations and present them to your staff prior to any medical services rendered to me
● keep track of the number of services authorized and the expiration dates. Provide a new insurance card if my insurance company changes.
● Pay all deductibles, co-insurance, and other amounts deemed by my insurance to be patient responsibility
● to know what services are and are not covered under my contract. I will be responsible for any payment if the doctor’s reimbursement for services provided to me would be denied by my health plan.
I have read the above information and have had the opportunity to ask questions about it.
