Allows us to discuss treatment or finances with parents, spouses, secretaries etc. as you designate. I agree that the office of Drs Seaver and Pittman can discuss treatment, arrange appointments, discuss fees, and make financial arrangements.
The office of Drs. Seaver and Pittman has developed this mutual agreement to pertain to the treatment of my medical conditions. I understand that the goal of treatment is to improve my functional ability, and in doing so, that sometimes requires narcotics and/or sedatives. These medications sometimes lead to abuse and dependency, though if used correctly, can be very effective. By checking and signing this document in the appropriate areas below, I understand my responsibility and agree to uphold this agreement.
Our office is pleased to accept your insurance assignment. We offer this service as a courtesy to our patients. However, it must be clearly understood that the "contract" is between the patient and the insurance company, the account thereby being the responsibility of the patient for any amount not paid by the insurance company. Following is a statement of our policy governing insurance claims. The patient will pay the co-payment (the amount estimated as not covered by the insurance company) at the time services are rendered. After we receive payment from your insurance company, any difference will be billed to you. We expect payment within 10 days after receipt of your statement.
To reduce our administrative costs and keep our fees to you as low as possible, we ask that you pay your co-payment at the time you receive treatment. Please indicate below the method of payment you intend to use to pay for your dental treatment, including your co-payment.
Our desire is to provide every patient with the treatment they need, along with the special attention they deserve. We do not overbook patient appointments. However, we will DOUBLE BOOK any unconfirmed appointment. As a courtesy to our patients, we call 2 days prior to your appointment to remind you of your appointment and answer any additional questions you might have about your appointment. If we are unable to reach you one business day before your appointment by 2PM on a Monday - Thursday or 11AM on a Friday, it is considered an unconfirmed appointment and will be taken off our schedule. Please insure you have provided us with the phone number(s) where we can best reach you or leave you a message during daytime hours. If you know you will be unable to keep your appointment, please call us as soon as possible.
So that we can accommodate all our patients’ needs, we ask that you provide us 24 hours notification if you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment.
For those patients who are unable to provide us 24 hours notification, we do have a broken appointment policy whereby you may be charged a fee of $50.00. We understand that circumstances do arise that are beyond your control. We do waive this fee on a case-by-case basis. If you break three appointments within a year, we will no longer be able to see you in our office.
Due to federal regulations, we are not allowed to charge or collect a broken appointment fee from Medicaid patients. Medicaid broken appointments are reported to the Virginia Medicaid System. Once a Medicaid patient does not give us a 24 hour notification of cancellation and breaks 3 appointments in our practice within a 1 year period, they will be terminated/fired from this practice and can no longer be seen. We understand that circumstances do arise that are beyond your control. The decision to terminate/fire a patient will be determined on a case-by-case basis and the patient will be notified in writing.
Patients who consistently break appointments after having confirmed their appointment may be asked to pay a Reservation Fee before an appointment is rescheduled. Reservation Fees will be applied to your appointment.
In consideration of professional services performed by James M. Seaver, D.D.S. and Tyler L. Pittman, D.D.S, P.C., the undersigned hereby accepts total and absolute responsibility for all costs incurred as a result of such treatment and services not covered by any acceptable insurance.
