Evergreen staff looks forward to helping you reach your goals. This form requests information to better serve you. All information between provider and patient is held strictly confidential unless you authorize release of confidential information; you present physical danger to yourself or other(s); or child/elder abuse or neglect is suspected.

II. Consent for treatment and use of personal health information (PHI): I acknowledge that I have consented to receive mental health and related services from the staff of EYS which will be described in full in the treatment planning process.

If applicable, upon verification of health plan/insurance coverage and policy limits, your insurance carrier will be billed for you and EYS will be paid directly by the carrier. Please note that Evergreen has a policy that we will cover costs not paid by insurance companies for mental health services.

I understand and agree to all of the above information.
