Please review the following Informed Consent and Office Financial Policy at this time. You will not be able to sign these forms online, but you will be provided paper copies of these forms and asked to sign them at your first visit.

INFORMED CONSENT FOR EXAMINATION AND TREATMENT
I hereby request and consent to the performance of physical examinations, chiropractic adjustments and other chiropractic procedures, including various modes of physical therapy and physiotherapy, on myself (or on the patient named below, for whom I am legally responsible) by the doctor of chiropractic named below and/or other licensed doctors of chiropractic who now or in the future work at this office.

I have had an opportunity to discuss with the doctor of chiropractic named below and/or with other office personnel the nature and purpose of chiropractic adjustments and other procedures. I understand that results are not guaranteed.

I understand and am informed that, as in the practice of medicine, in the practice of chiropractic there are some risks to treatment, including but not limited to sprains, strains, fractures, disc injuries, dislocation, and stroke. I do not expect the doctor to be able to anticipate and explain all risks and complications, as I wish to rely upon the doctor to exercise judgment during the course of the procedure which the doctor feels at the time, based upon the facts then known to him or her, is in my best interest.

I have read, or have had read to me, the above consent. I have also had an opportunity to ask questions about its content, and by signing below I agree to the above-named procedures along with any therapeutic procedures performed that are within the scope of the treating doctor of chiropractic’s license. I intend this consent form to cover the entire course of examination and treatment for my present condition and for any future condition(s) for which I seek treatment.

OFFICE FINANCIAL POLICY
New Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation wants to provide the most efficient and affordable health care services, so it is necessary for us to have a financial policy stating our requirements for timely payment of services and products provided by our office. We welcome the opportunity to discuss any aspect of our financial policy.

To help us help you, please:
  1. Provide us with accurate and updated information on yourself and your insurance company.
  2. Pay at the time of service for your entire balance.
If you have health insurance:
We are happy to file claims for services provided at New Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation to your insurance company as a courtesy to you. As stated by your insurance company: “Verification of benefits is not a guarantee of payment.” If you have insurance and we file with your carrier for you, you will be responsible for all charges not paid by the insurance company. The balance due is your responsibility if we have not received payment from your insurance company within 60 days.

New Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation sends claims with procedure codes to the insurance companies. Your insurance company then chooses the “reasonable and customary” amount to apply to your visit. Your insurance plan is a contract between you and your insurance company, therefore any amount applied toward your deductible, copays and coinsurances must be paid in full.

By signing this financial policy:
  1. You are authorizing New Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, its providers, and its employees to release any necessary information related to this visit and all future visits to your insurance company for the purpose of claim(s) payment.
  2. You are authorizing your insurance company and your medical provider to release your medical records at New Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for the purpose of claim(s) payment.
  3. You are authorizing your insurance company to pay any medical benefits and all future claims for services provided by our office directly to New Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation. In the event that your insurance company directly pays benefits to you, the patient, you agree to authorize those payments, in full, to New Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation.
  4. You are giving New Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation the right to speak with your insurance company, any third party insurance company, and your attorney regarding your claims and bills.
  5. You agree that a photocopy of any document is as valid and effective as the original.
New Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation and its providers accept worker’s compensation and auto accident insurance. We require that a lien signed by the patient and any attorneys is on file when applicable. If Med-Pay is unavailable, it remains the responsibility of the patient to pay for any services rendered at the time of service.
If you prefer that we do not file insurance claims for you, you may pay cash at time of service and send the claim to your insurance carrier. If you choose to submit your own claims, we will provide you with a superbill, but cannot assist you in filing your claims.

If You Do Not Have Health Insurance:
If you do not have insurance or your insurance company does not cover our services, you will be considered a “self-pay” patient. All payments will be due at time of service/s, or according to the payment schedule based on an authorized payment plan. Payment plans are available to make treatment an affordable part of your budget.

Cancellation Policy:
In order to provide you with the best possible care, please arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment— late arrival may result in cancellation. We require 24 hours’ notice of cancellation or you will be subject to a $25 fee. Please remember that failure to appear for your appointment prevents others from receiving care.

Financial Charges:
Failure to pay for services and products provided by New Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation will result in a finance charge. If we need to forward your account over to a collections agency for further legal action, you will be responsible for the entire balance on your account plus any collection fees.

Payment Options
For your convenience, we are happy to keep your credit card on file and secured for payment of all services and products.

Non-Sufficient Funds Charges:
We charge a NSF charge if any payment is returned due to insufficient funds. If payment is returned, then we are authorized to charge your credit card on file for the balance owed plus the NSF Charge.

*Signing below also acknowledges receipt of our Privacy Notice, which can be provided upon request or accessed online at www.newheightschiro.com
