Patient Registration Form
Lake Family Dental
301 State Ave SW,Warroad, MN 56763(218) 386-1048
I hereby authorize the attending doctor(s) or designated team members to take x-rays, study models, photographs, and any other diagnostic aids deemed appropriate to make a thorough diagnosis of patient's dental needs.
Upon such diagnosis, I authorize the doctor to perform all recommended treatment mutually agreed upon by me and to employ such assistance as required to provide proper care.
I consent to the use of appropriate medication and therapy as deemed necessary. I fully understand that using anesthetic agents embody a certain risk.
I agree to be responsible for payment of all services rendered on my behalf or my dependents. I understand that payment is due at the time of service unless other arrangements have been made. In the event payments are not received by an agreed upon date(s), I understand that a 1 1/2% finance charge (18% APR) may be added to my account. I further understand that I am responsible to pay reasonable attorney’s fees and all costs of collection in the event of my default.
I authorize the health care provider to submit claims for payment for services to the health care service plans or insurance companies named, on my behalf and in my name, and assign to such provider the group insurance benefits otherwise payable to me, not to exceed the provider's actual charges for the covered services. I understand that I am financially responsible for any charges not covered by the group insurance benefits.
I authorize the health care provider to release to hospital or health care service plans, insurance companies, self-insurers, or their representatives, any and all information and records (including x-rays) about my medical history, or about services rendered or treatment given to me, that is needed to review, investigate or evaluate any claim for benefits. If my coverage is under a group master agreement held by my employer, and association, trust fund, union or similar entity, this authorization also permits disclosure to them for purposes of utilization review or financial audit. This authorization shall remain effective for up to five years from this date. I know that I have the right to receive a copy of this authorization if requested.
