I, the patient, do hereby voluntarily consent to such care encompassing diagnostic procedures and medical treatment as ordered by the prescribing physician, his/her assistant(s), consultant(s), as is necessary in his/her professional judgment. I assume responsibility for discussing and understanding my proposed treatment and goals based on the evaluation with my practitioner, as well as expected benefits and potential risks and drawbacks of the evaluation and service, and understand treatment does not guarantee an improvement in patients current condition.
I hereby authorize Viverant, its employees or agents, to release medical information regarding myself and my current condition(s) to my insurance company for purposes of payment and/or quality reviews; and referring, consulting, treating physicians, or other medical providers as necessary to support continuity of care. This authorization will remain valid until mutually revoked in writing by both the patient and Viverant. I understand that Viverant has made a copy of their Notice of Privacy Practices available for my review, and that I can request a copy at anytime in writing or by contacting a Viverant office representative. I give Viverant consent to utilize photos and/or written/verbal testimonials for marketing purposes, and authorize Viverant to utilize my contact information, such as email addresses or phone numbers, to correspond with me information not considered Protected Health Information (PHI).
I, the patient, understand that I am responsible for communication with my insurance company regarding any co-payments, deductibles, or provider information pertaining to my treatment at Viverant. I understand that I am responsible for obtaining any required referrals from primary care clinics. I understand I am ultimately responsible for any charges not covered by third party payers. I attest that I am not currently receiving or enrolled in home health services. I agree to notify Viverant in writing if I begin home health services, and acknowledge that failure to notify Viverant in writing will result in my being financially responsible for services rendered, up to $160 per visit. I have reviewed the various fee/payment scenarios and understand that I am responsible for all outstanding balances. I also understand that, any balance on my account over 60 days outstanding, after insurance has processed said claim(s), is subject to 3% interest fee per month; any account 90 days outstanding, or in collections for non-payment, will assess a $50 processing fee and will require payment in full prior to further treatment. Any patient payments returned for insufficient funds will be assessed a $20 NSF fee. In addition, I understand that I am responsible for any equipment or supplies purchased specifically for my treatment, and I will be billed for any such supplies over $10.00 in value. I also understand if I schedule and fail to show for an appointment, or fail to give 1 business day notice of my cancellation, Viverant may charge me a No-Show fee of $50 and any translation/interpreter charges incurred due to lack of notice, and after 2 occurrences may result in appointment scheduling restriction to same-day scheduling only.
I understand that if I choose Viverant's Self-Pay payment option, I agree NOT to solicit reimbursement from any third party payer for Self-Pay services received at Viverant. I understand each individual Self-Pay treatment purchased must be redeemed within 12 months of purchase before expiration. I also understand if I choose not to utilize self-pay, Viverant is not able to withdraw claims already submitted to my insurance. If I select Viverant's self-pay services, I understand Viverant is NOT able to withdraw claims already submitted to my insurance to switch to self-pay, and is NOT able to reprocess self-pay claims to insurance.
I agree I am responsible for notifying Viverant within 30 days of change in insurance coverage, or termination of existing coverage. If I fail to do so within that timeframe, I will be responsible for full balance due of services rendered. If I notify Viverant of new insurance after services have already been rendered, and insurance will not cover services due to plan-level requirements not being met (such as but not limited to MD Orders, Prior Authorization), I agree to be responsible for full balance due of services rendered.
I hereby agree that I, my assignees, heirs, distributees, guardians, and legal representatives will not make a claim against, sue, or attach the property of Viverant or any agent of Viverant on account of injury or damage resulting from the negligence or other acts, howsoever caused, by any employee, agent, or contractor of Viverant. I hereby release Viverant from all actions, claims, or demands that I, my assignees, heirs, distributees, guardians, and legal representatives now have or may hereafter have for injury or damage resulting from my treatment at Viverant.
If applicable, I authorize third party payment directly to Viverant of the benefits otherwise payable to me. Those charges are not to exceed the regular charges for this period of treatment. If I have sought litigation due to my injury and refuse to provide the appropriate insurance information, I understand that I am required to pay Viverant at the time services are provided. I also understand that if I have filed a Workers Compensation claim and my claim is denied, I will then be responsible for payment of services as they are received if I do not provide health insurance. I understand I am financially responsible to Viverant for charges not covered by this authorization.
