I authorize and request payment of insurance benefits directly to Blayne Baker DC. I agree that this authorization will cover all services rendered until I revoke the authorization. I agree that a photocopy of this form may be used in place of the original. All professional services rendered are charged to the patient. It is customary to pay for services when rendered unless other arrangements have been made in advance. I understand that I am financially responsible for charges not covered by this assignment and that Atlas Chiropractic reserves the right to add a $25.00 service charge to my account for any returned check or charge back. I authorize this facility along with any billing service and their collection agency or attorney who may work on their behalf, to contact me on my cell phone and/or home phone.
In order to provide for the most effective healing environment, most effective application of chiropractic procedures, and the strongest possible doctor-patient relationship, it is our wish to provide each patient with a set of parameters and declarations that will facilitate the goal of optimum health through chiropractic.

By my signature below, I have read and fully understand the above statements.
All questions regarding the doctor’s objectives pertaining to my care in this office have been answered to my satisfaction. I therefore accept chiropractic care on this basis.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE, LIKE ALL FORMS OF HEALTH CARE WHILE OFFERING CONSIDERABLE BENEFITS MAY ALSO PROVIDE SOME LEVEL OF RISK. THIS LEVEL OF RISK IS MOST OFTEN VERY MINIMAL, YET IN RARE CASES, INJURY HAS BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE. THE TYPES OF COMPLICATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN REPORTED SECONDARY TO CHIROPRACTIC CARE INCLUDE: SPRAIN/STRAIN INJURIES, IRRITATION OF A DISC CONDITION, AND RARELY, FRACTURES. ONE OF THE RAREST COMPLICATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE OCCURRING AT A RATE BETWEEN ONE INSTANCE PER ONE MILLION TO ONE PER TWO MILLION CERVICAL SPINE (NECK) ADJUSTMENTS MAY BE A VERTEBRAL INJURY THAT COULD LEAD TO A STROKE.
PRIOR TO RECEIVING CHIROPRACTIC CARE IN THIS CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE, A HEALTH HISTORY AND PHYSICAL EXAMINATION WILL BE COMPLETED. THESE PROCEDURES ARE PERFORMED TO ASSESS YOUR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS, YOUR OVERALL HEALTH AND IN PARTICULAR YOUR SPINAL HEALTH. THESE PROCEDURES WILL ASSIST US IN DETERMINING IF CHIROPRACTIC CARE IS NEEDED, OR IF ANY FURTHER EXAMINATIONS OR STUDIES ARE NEEDED. IN ADDITION, THEY WILL HELP US DETERMINE IF THERE IS ANY REASON TO MODIFY YOUR CARE OR PROVIDE YOU WITH A REFERRAL TO ANOTHER HEALTH CARE PROVIDER. ALL RELEVANT FINDINGS WILL BE REPORTED TO YOU ALONG WITH A CARE PLAN PRIOR TO BEGINNING CARE.
I UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT THAT THERE ARE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND GIVE CONSENT TO THE EXAMINATION THAT THE DOCTOR DEEMS NECESSARY AND THE CHIROPRACTIC CARE, INCLUDING SPINAL ADJUSTMENTS, AS REPORTED FOLLOWING MY ASSESSMENT.
I AUTHORIZE THE DOCTOR AND ANY AND ALL ATLAS CHIROPRACTIC STAFF TO PERFORM DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES, RADIOGRAPHIC EVALUATIONS, RENDER CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND PERFORM CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS TO MY MINOR/CHILD.
AS OF THIS DATE, I HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO SELECT AND AUTHORIZE HEALTH CARE SERVICES FOR MY MINOR/CHILD. IF MY AUTHORITY TO SELECT AND AUTHORIZE CARE IS REVOKED OR ALTERED, I WILL IMMEDIATELY NOTIFY ATLAS CHIROPRACTIC.
