In response to the recent Covid-19 pandemic, Childress Nursing Services is implementing necessary standard protocols to keep our nurses and clients safe during this public health emergency. This means our nurses will receive regular Covid-19 health screenings, testing as needed, and be outfitted in full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and use disinfectants during all injection visits. Clients and any household members present in the home at the time of visit will receive a Covid-19 screening questionnaire and temperature check at the door before every visit. Additionally, the following Covid-19 diagnostic (diagnostic tests = molecular or antigen) testing requirements for clients will be implemented:
Pre-Start of Care
Clients must have been tested for Covid-19 and those test results received within 48 hours before the start of care date and time.
Post-Start of Care
For ongoing Covid-19 screening purposes, clients are required to be tested for Covid-19 every 7 days starting after receipt of start of care testing results until end of care date or termination of services.
Positive Covid-19 Test Results
Any client or household member(s) who test positive for Covid-19 will result in an immediate visit cancellation and will need to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test result to resume CNS home health services.
Covid-19 Testing Exemption
If client has completed Covid-19 vaccination series and it has been at least 2 weeks post-vaccination completion, then client is exempt from Covid-19 pre and post - start of care testing, upon submission of proof of vaccination completion. However, if client starts exhibiting Covid-19 symptoms or has been exposed to a positive Covid-19 person, then client will have to adhere to the pre/post-start of care testing requirements.
If clients are unable to acquire outside CLIA-certified Covid-19 diagnostic lab testing, as long as CNS has adequate testing supplies, CNS Testing, the laboratory division of CNS, can provide Covid-19 rapid, same-visit/same-day diagnostic testing and health screening. All CNS Testing visits will be performed by a CNS nurse, occur simultaneously with injection visits and will meet pre and post - start of care requirements. Clients should contact their provider about needing a Covid-19 diagnostic test order. Additionally, CNS will send a lab requisition form to the provider on behalf of the client. If CNS obtains a Covid-19 diagnostic test order for a client from their healthcare provider within 48 hours of start of care, then no upfront payment is due from client and insurance will be billed initially for testing fees. Note: Covid-19 antibody tests are optional, must be performed during same visit as molecular or antigen diagnostic test, and must be paid of out-of-pocket (not insurance billable).

Covid-19 pandemic, policies and testing
Until the Covid-19 pandemic emergency is lifted, I understand that I will be required to answer the Covid-19 questionnaire in my Initial Consultation Form. If CNS determines that I show signs or symptoms of an active Covid-19 infection, then CNS will promptly notify me that I will not be able to receive home services at that time. Also, I understand that my CNS nurse will be arriving at my residence wearing enhanced PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to include a mask, eye protection, gloves, and gown or other protective clothing cover. My CNS nurse will be checking my temperature at my door for me (and any household member(s) who will be in my home during my home health visit) before entering and asking Covid-19 health screening questions. I have read and agree to the CNS Covid-19 policies and testing. If my temperature is 100.4 F/37.8 C or above or if me or a household member tests positive for Covid-19, then my CNS nurse can refuse to provide services at that time. If I am refused services, then CNS agrees to refund my fees paid for service on that date (minus only a $75 service cancellation fee) within 3-7 business days after my transaction has cleared by CNS' bank OR can be credited to a later injection visit per my choosing but subject to CNS office approval.
I am consenting to receive home health services from Childress Nursing Services during the COVID-19 outbreak. I understand there is much to learn about the newly emerged COVID-19 including how it spreads and transmitted.I understand that based on what is currently known about COVID-19 the spread is thought to occur mostly from person-to-person via respiratory droplets among close contacts. I understand that close contact can occur from being within approximately 6 feet of someone with COVID-19 for a prolonged period of time or by having direct contact with infectious secretions from someone with COVID-19. I understand that carriers of COVID-19 may not show symptoms but may still be highly contagious. I understand that due to the unknowns of this virus, the number of other clients serviced by CNS and the nature of the home care services provided, that I have an increased risk of contracting the virus by receiving home services. I understand that the CDC guidelines do not recommend proceeding with any medical treatment that is non-essential at this time. I confirm that my home injection service is essential at this time. I understand that the symptoms listed below are representative of COVID-19:● Fever● Dry Cough● Shortness of Breath● Temperature● Persistent pain or pressure in the chest● Bluish lips or face● Muscle pain● Sore throat● New loss of taste or smell
I confirm that I do not display or currently have any of the symptoms that are representative of COVID-19, which are outlined above.
Overtime/HolidaysUnless previously agreed upon, all charges for hourly rate services rendered in excess of forty (40) hours during any work week and/or on holidays will be one and one-half times the applicable rate. Holiday rates on services billed on a per visit basis will be one-half times the applicable rate.
Holiday rates applicable for: New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.
Service Cancellation FeesI agree to pay Childress Nursing Services a minimum of four (4) hours of service charges at a rate of $75/hour ($300) on behalf of any care professional employed or contracted by Childress Nursing Services who reports for duty at my service address should I decide to terminate this Agreement without proper notice.
I also agree to pay Childress Nursing Services a $150 administration fee in the event that I book services and later cancel at any time for any reason, except when CNS cancels my services due to suspected active Covid-19 infection. I agree to pay a $75 administration fee, if CNS cancels my services due to a suspected active Covid-19 infection.
Service InterruptionI understand Childress Nursing Services uses its best efforts to provide uninterrupted services; however, sometimes interruptions are unavoidable. During any interruption of service, I understand that I may be responsible for and agree to provide or arrange for backup care. However, Childress Nursing Services will make all reasonable attempts to provide service through their caregivers or another agency.
Termination of ServicesI understand that I may terminate this Agreement by giving at least forty-eight (48) hours notice prior to start date of service to Childress Nursing Services. However, I will still be responsible for paying the abovementioned applicable administration fees to Childress Nursing Services.
I understand that Childress Nursing Services may terminate this Agreement by providing at least forty-eight (48) hours notice prior to date of service or other minimum notice required under applicable state law. I recognize that notification may be furnished by telephone, and that written confirmation will follow by mail or e-mail. In those circumstances in which the life, safety, or well-being of care professionals employed or contracted by Childress Nursing Services is or may be jeopardized, failure to pay for services rendered, and/or significant non-compliance with my plan of care, Childress Nursing Services may terminate this Agreement without prior notice.
Termination of Services due to a suspected case of an active Covid-19 infection can be implemented immediately, and I will be notified immediately of service termination by CNS.
Payment for Services with Insurance (if applicable)
I authorize the release of any medical or other information necessary to process an insurance claim. I understand that CNS will diligently attempt to get accurate information regarding my health insurance benefits. I will not hold CNS liable for insurance nonpayment due to misquoted benefits. I acknowledge that I am responsible to know and understand my benefits plan. If CNS accepts me as a client, then CNS will file my insurance claims if in-network for me as a courtesy. I am ultimately responsible for any co-pay(s) and all charges my insurance company does not pay, except for contracted network provider discounts that may apply. All injection visits are billed at the discounted rate of $200/injection visit to insurance. I also request assigned benefits be paid to CNS.
In the event that my insurance company denies my claims or only partially pays CNS for my health services within a reasonable time, not to exceed 60 days post-service, then my payment plan will automatically revert to an out-of-pocket/self-pay method, and CNS will bill me directly for service fees. I understand that an co-pays/co-insurance/deductibles or any payment that insurance company requires will be billed based upon my discounted $200/injection visit rate or whichever rate that my insurance plan mandates. I also understand that CNS will attempt to contact me and try to transfer me to the best out-of-pocket/self-pay plans below or a customized payment plan that is most economical for my level of service, if my insurance claim is fully denied. I agree to pay all monies owed for services rendered within 7 days (or a different agreed upon time frame by me and CNS) of written notice sent by CNS to me either via email or billing mailing address.
