COVID Related Visits: The CARES Act modified and expanded the provisions of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the FFCRA) to require employer-sponsored group health plans (both fully insured and self-funded) to provide cost-free coverage of COVID-19 testing and related items and services. This member cost-sharing waiver also applies to all Commercial, Medicare and Medicaid lines of business. It requires health plans to cover COVID-19 tests that are FDA approved or approved by the state, without prior authorization and at no cost to the enrollee. COVID-19 related visits will be submitted to the appropriate insurers, however, there may be some instances in which your visit is not reimbursed to our medical group. In the event your COVID-19 visit is not covered by your healthcare insurance, or reimbursement is paid to the patient, you will be responsible for your payment to Coastal Family Urgent Care. You acknowledge it will be your obligation to obtain and submit the proper information to your health insurance company for reimbursement for payment to ensure there is no out of pocket cost to you.
Financial Responsibility: While we attempt to provide the most accurate information possible, eligibility and benefits differs with each patient’s healthcare plan, and it is ultimately your responsibility to check with your specific carrier to determine network status, coverage and financial responsibility. Some services may be billed separately, and any amounts not paid by your insurance company are your individual responsibility. (Examples include: Radiology readings, labs and orthopedic supplies). If any of the services or charges are not covered by your insurance company or if Coastal Family Urgent Care is not able to verify/confirm your eligibility, you are responsible for all charges incurred. The patient/guarantor agrees he/she is hereby responsible for paying any co-payments or estimated co-insurance amounts determined by your insurance company’s contract at time of service. Coastal Family Urgent Care will not assume responsibility for any personal property you may bring into the facility.

Consent to Telemedicine: Telemedicine is healthcare provided by any means other than a face-to-face visit. Medical and mental health information is used for diagnosis, consultation, treatment, therapy, follow-up, and education. Health information is exchanged interactively from one site to another through electronic communications. Telemedicine involves the exchange of medical health information in a technology-assisted format to provide remote clinical services to patients. Telephone consultation, videoconferencing, transmission of still images, e-health technologies, patient portals, and remote patient monitoring are all considered telemedicine services. Telemedicine communications carries some level of risk of breach of confidentiality, and it is important to use a secure network with any electronic exchange. Our telemedicine visits are typically performed through our HIPPA compliant electronic medical record platform. During the COVID-19 public health emergency, regulatory agencies have allowed for telephone visits and telemedicine visits through platforms such as Skype to allow for greater access to medical care but may not provide a secure HIPAA-compliant platform. Electronic communication may also be used to communicate highly sensitive medical information. You understand you must take reasonable steps to protect the unauthorized use of electronic communications by others and the healthcare provider is not responsible for breaches of confidentiality caused by an independent third party or by you. Telemedicine services can only be provided to patients who are residing in the state of at the time of this service. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act provides safeguards to protect my privacy and there are rules and restrictions on who may see or be notified of Protected Health Information. Information exchanged during your telemedicine visit will be maintained by the doctors, other healthcare providers, and healthcare facilities involved in you care and medical information, including medical records. These safeguards are governed by federal and state laws and will be maintained under the privacy rules and regulations required, including the right to access your own medical records. Your healthcare provider may choose to forward or request my information to an authorized third party such as my prescription medication history or insurance carrier for billing and treatment purposes. If there is any information you do not wish to be transmitted through electronic communications, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org. A medical evaluation via telemedicine may limit my healthcare provider’s ability to fully diagnose a condition or disease. As a patient, you agree to accept responsibility for following my healthcare provider’s recommendations—including further diagnostic testing or an in-office visit. You may opt out of the telemedicine visit at any time. This will not change your ability to receive future care at this office.
