OFFICE POLICY( * mandatory to fill )

Please read this page thoroughly. It describes our office policies regarding financial arrangements and missed appointments. 

As a courtesy to our patients we confirm appointments via text or email. Please initial to accept this method of communication. Intl 

We know it is difficult and time consuming trying to read your policy book that your insurance company provided you. As a special bonus for you, we subscribe to a service which updates dental insurance benefits by employer and policy number for the year. Our staff also telephones your insurance company prior to your visit in order to verify benefits. With this information, we can estimate very closely what your patient portion would be for the procedures you might need. Occasionally, the insurance representative on the phone and/or our computer information is incorrect. That is why we estimate patient portions rather than quote them as definite. Your 

your portion of each visit, We accept cash, checks, credit cards and ATM cards which are linked to Mastercard and Visa. Please be aware that during treatment, it may be necessary to change or add procedures. We will make every effort to advise you of these changes as they may occur. 

We do not finance our patients' dental care; however we do offer 3rd party financing with CareCredit. This is like a healthcare credit card used by many health professionals, where in most cases, the doctor pays your interest for you so you can get your treatment done as soon as possible. Any balances on your account are subject to a finance charge after 30 days. 

 We make every effort to stay right on time with our schedule. Your time is very important to us! For best customer service, we schedule time with one patient and do not double book. We need your cooperation in helping to keep  everyone's appointments at their correct times by being on time to your scheduled appointment and calling us if you are running late. When an appointment is missed without 24 hours' notification. you will be charged a fee of $ 75.

Twenty-four hours is the minimum amount of time we need to make arrangements to allow someone else to use that time. We do leave telephone/email messages for you if you wish us to remind you of your appointments, but it is ultimately your responsibility to remember the appointments you have scheduled with us. 

If you have any questions about anything described here, please call us. We are always happy to clarify anything regarding your treatment, financial obligations, scheduling, etc. Again, thank you for choosing our office. This policy note is to prevent any miscommunications that may arise. We look forward to providing you with great customer service and giving you a smile you love! 

I have read and understand these office policies.

We respect our legal obligation to keep health information that identifies you private. We are obligated by law to give you notice of our privacy practices. This Notice describes how we protect your health information and what rights you have regarding it. 

TREATMENT, PAYMENT, AND HEALTH CARE OPERATIONS

The most common reason why we use or disclose your health information is for treatment, payment or health care operations. Examples of how we use or disclose information for treatment purposes are: setting up an appointment for you; testing or examining your eyes; prescribing glasses, contact lenses, or eye medications and faxing them to be filled; showing you low vision aids; referring you to another doctor or clinic for eye care or low vision aids or services; or getting copies of your health information from another professional that you may have seen before us. Examples of how we use or disclose your health information for payment purposes are: asking you about your health or vision care plans, or other sources of payment; preparing and sending bills or claims; and collecting unpaid amounts (either ourselves or through a collection agency or attorney). "Health care operations" mean those administrative and managerial functions that we have to do in order to run our office. Examples of how we use or disclose your health information for health care operations are: financial or billing audits; internal quality assurance; personnel decisions; participation in managed care plans; defense of legal matters; business planning; and outside storage of our records. We routinely use your health information inside our office for these purposes without any special permission. 

If we need to disclose your health information outside of our office for these reasons, we will ask you for special written permission. 

 USES AND DISCLOSURES FOR OTHER REASONS WITHOUT PERMISSION

In some limited situations, the law allows or requires us to use or disclose your health information without your permission. Not all of these situations will apply to us; some may never come up at our office at all. Such uses or disclosures are: 

- when a state or federal law mandates that certain health information be reported for a specific purpose; for public health purposes, such as contagious disease reporting, investigation or surveillance; and notices to and from the federal Food and Drug Administration regarding drugs or medical devices; 'disclosures to governmental authorities about victims of suspected abuse, neglect or domestic violence; 

- uses and disclosures for health oversight activities, such as for the licensing of doctors; for audits by Medicare or Medicaid; or for investigation of possible violations of health care laws; 

- disclosures for judicial and administrative proceedings, such as in response to subpoenas or orders of courts or administrative agencies; 

- disclosures for law enforcement purposes, such as to provide information about someone who is or is suspected to be a victim of a crime; to provide information about a crime at our office; or to report a crime that happened somewhere else; 

- disclosure to a medical examiner to identify a dead person or to determine the cause of death or to funeral directors to aid in burial; or to organizations that handle organ or tissue donations; 

- USE'S or disclosures for health related research; 

- uses and disclosures to prevent a serious threat to health or safety; 

- uses or disclosures for specialized government functions, such as for the protection of the president or high ranking government officials; for lawful national intelligence activities; for military purposes; or for the evaluation and health of members of the foreign service; 

- disclosures of de-identified information;

- disclosures relating to worker's compensation programs; 

- disclosures of a "limited data set" for research, public health, or health care operations;

OTHER USES AND DISCLOSURES

We will not make any other uses or disclosures of your health information unless you sign a written "authorization form." The content of an "authorization form" is determined by federal law. Sometimes, we may initiate the authorization process if the use or disclosure is our idea. Sometimes, you may initiate the process if it's your idea for us to send your information to someone else. Typically, in this situation you will give us a properly completed authorization form, or you can use one of ours. If we initiate the process and ask you to sign an authorization form. you do not have to sign it. If you do not sign the authorization, we cannot make the use or disclosure. If you do sign one, you may revoke it at any time unless we have already acted in reliance upon it. Revocations must be in writing.
