Forum Extended Care Services, Inc., II (PHARMACY) agrees to provide medications and other pharmaceutical items as ordered by the resident’s physician in accordance with the following terms:
- Supplies and pharmaceuticals will be provided, and, if qualified, billed to Medicare, private insurance or public aid. If medical criteria are not met for a particular item and it will not qualify for Medicare, private insurance or public aid, the financially responsible party will be billed monthly for same.
- The responsible party as noted above shall pay PHARMACY for all non-covered charges, deductibles and co-pays incurred as a result of the medication and/or pharmaceutical items ordered by the patient’s physician or nurse. Pharmacy services can be paid by credit card or check.
- Payment for services rendered is due within thirty (30) days of billing date. If said bill is not paid in full within forty-five (45) days of the billing date, a penalty of 1.5% (minimum $1.50) per month will be assessed on the unpaid balance. In the event that the services of a collection agency are utilized to collect a bill, the responsible party will be liable for all fees charged by the collection agency as well as any legal fees incurred by PHARMACY in connection with collection of an outstanding bill. A $25 processing fee will be charged for any payment returned for insufficient funds.
I authorize PHARMACY to submit claims to Medicare B and D, Medicaid, and/or commercial insurance carriers for payment of covered services rendered on my behalf. I request that payment of authorized benefits be made on my behalf and authorize payment of my insurance benefits directly to PHARMACY, which payment will not exceed the balance due on my account. I authorize any holder of medical or other information about me to release to PHARMACY and/or the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, its agents and/or insurance companies, any information needed to determine these benefits or benefits for related services.
In the event there are any outstanding pharmacy charges that all reasonable collection efforts fail to recoup, I hereby grant to the PHARMACY the absolute right to file a lien on all real property or interest therein owned in whole or in part by the resident or responsible party identified below to satisfy this debt.
I certify that the information given by me is correct and I have read or had this document read to me, and I understand its contents and intents. I also certify that I am the resident, or am duly authorized by the resident as the resident’s general agent to execute the above and accept the items and with my signature so execute my permission.
