LIST ANY ACCIDENTS OF FALLS AND DATES

I understand and agree that health and accident insurance policies are an arrangement between the insurance carrier and myself. Furthermore, I understand the office will prepare any necessary reports and claims to assist me in making collection from the insurance company and that any amount unauthorized to be paid directly to the office will be credited to my account on receipt. However, I clearly understand and agree that all services rendered are charged directly to me and that I am personally responsible for payment. I also understand that I’ll suspend or terminate any case and treatment any less for professional services rendered me will be immediately due and payable.

ASSIGNMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR DIRECT PAYMENT TO DOCTOR: PRIVATE AND GROUP ACCIDENT AND HEALTH INSURANCE

Dear Patient, This is to remind you that the office will be reinforcing our 24 hour cancellation and missed appointment fee policy. If you must cancel your scheduled appointment it must be done prior to 24 hours. Otherwise a fee of $25 will be charged. Last minute cancellations and missed appointments cause significant scheduling conflicts with other patients who prefer those scheduled times. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. Thank you. Sincerely, Old Bridge Spine
