I hereby give my consent for Lockhart Family Medicine to evaluate and treat the patient of this form.
I have been provided with the Privacy Practicers Notice for Lockhart Family Medicine.
I understand that my personal health information will be used for the purpose of treatment, payment, and the coordination of the health care needs of the patient.
ASSIGNMENT OF INSURANCE BENEFITS
Payment is due at the time services are rendered. I understand that I am responsible for any health insurance deductibles, co-payments, or coinsurance. I understand that should membership verification not indicate coverage, I agree to pay in full for services rendered. I agree that billing information and address information is correct as shown on the front of this document. I authorize payment of medical benefits to Lockhart Family Medicine for services rendered.
We have contracted with several insurance plans in order to accommodate your needs. While we are happy to provide this service to you, it is impossible for us to know the individual provisions of every patient's plan. The policy book you have received when you signed up for your insurance outlines the specifics of your plan.
It is your responsibility to read and understand your plan's provisions. If you have questions about your insurance coverage, call your insurance company or employer for clarification prior to your appointment.
When you see us for each visit you must let us know what the guidelines for your insurance coverage are. For example, if your plan requires you to use a specific lab or radiology facility, it is your responsibility to let us know which one.
