HIPAA Compliance Statement
Your health information may be used in our office to conduct scheduling and coordination of care between the doctor, dental assistant, hygienist and business office staff. We may include your health information with an invoice used to collect payment for treatment you receive in our office. We may do this with insurance forms filed for you in the mail or sent electronically. Your health information may be reviewed during the routine process of certification, licensing, credentialing activities or auditing for quality assurance.
Communication with our patients is an important part of our philosophy. We prefer to communicate with you directly but we may incorporate the use of phone messages, postcards, letters, and emails. We will make every effort to respect your privacy and honor your request for confidentiality. If you have special needs in regards to privacy issues, please put them in writing for the office, so that we may address your concerns.
I have read and truthfully answered the above questions to the best of my knowledge. I authorize the doctor and/or his staff to release all information necessary to secure payment of my benefits from my insurance company.
I understand that fees may vary at the time of service due to the extent of treatment. Fees are estimates only and are not a guarantee of payment by my insurance company. I understand that the payment of this account is my responsibility, regardless of the amount my insurance company reimburses before or after payment is made.
