Health Information Exchange
We participate in one or more Health Information Exchanges. Your healthcare providers can use this electronic network to securely provide access to your health records for a better picture of your health needs. We, and other healthcare providers, may allow access to your health information through the Health Information Exchange for treatment, payment or other healthcare operations. This is a voluntary agreement. You may opt-out at any time by notifying Fishbaugh Family Eyecare.
Acknowledgement of Responsibility
I acknowledge that I am personally responsible for this account. I authorize my insurance to pay directly to the provider. Even though Fishbaugh Family Eyecare may file and verify eligibility, this is not a guarantee of payment by the insurance company for any services. I assume full responsibility for any non-covered services, co-payments or deductibles that my insurance company does not pay, and that it is my full responsibility to inform Fishbaugh Family Eyecare of any insurance changes. I also understand there will be a $30 charge for any missed or canceled appointment with less than 24 hour notice. If three appointments are missed or cancelled within one year, treatment will be declined.
