If person signing is not patient please provide:
The following sets forth the policies of Soleil Surgical LLC. Please review this information and sign where indicated below.
I understand that it is my responsibility to furnish Soleil Surgical LLC with current, accurate insurance information at the time services are rendered and/or notify us in a timely manner of any changes in coverage, which may affect the payment of services already rendered.
I understand that if I present an insufficient funds check (NSF check) for payment on my account that I will be charged a $35.00 NSF Fee. These amounts must be cleared with our financial office prior to your next appointment.
I understand that a cancellation fee of $50.00 may be billed directly to myself if a 48-hour cancellation notice is not provided to our office. Specialty Ultrasound Appointments will have a $50.00 cancellation fee per test scheduled. In office procedure will have a $150.00 cancellation fee.
I understand that a surgery cancellation fee of $150.00 may be billed directly to myself if a surgery is cancelled. Our office will allow one cancellation with no fee charged but if a surgery is cancelled by the patient or patient’s family again, this fee will be assessed.
It is the responsibility of each patient to understand their insurance policy and its requirements for specialty office visits. It is the patient’s responsibility to make sure there is a valid referral on file for their appointment before coming to the office. If the day of the appointment there is no valid referral on file, the appointment will be rescheduled. Soleil Surgical LLC and/or its representatives will make every effort to assist you, but will not be held accountable if there is no referral on file for your visit.
I understand that there is a $25.00 fee (per form) to complete disability paperwork associated with my care.
I understand that the office will verify my insurance eligibility for surgery, but until claims are processed deductible amounts and co-insurance amounts prior to surgery cannot be determined. I further understand that a surgery co-pay may be collected upfront and applied to those fees. I further understand that ANY FEES I AM QUOTED ARE ESTIMATED based on 1) anticipated surgery to be performed and 2) current information provided to clinic by my insurance carrier.
I understand that I will be billed for any amounts due by me (co-payments/co-insurance amounts/deductibles) and that I have a financial responsibility to pay these amounts. I understand that I will be provided with three (3) statements for any balance due after insurance payment. I further understand that if I have not made payment prior to the third statement being mailed, the third statement will be marked as “Final Notice” and may result in my account being sent to an outside collection service if I still do not fulfill my financial obligations. I also understand that I will be responsible for any collection, interest or legal expenses associated with those collection efforts.
I understand that the office will obtain the necessary authorizations prior to surgery. I further understand that prior authorization is not a guarantee of payment, and that I am responsible for all charges not paid by my insurance carrier. This also applies if your insurance company delays payment over 90 days after billing or denial of insurance coverage. If your insurance company demands a refund of any monies paid to us, you become financially responsible for those charges.
I understand that the office may also take a verbal request by me over the phone to make a credit card payment on my account. I give authorization for the clinic to bill my card for the amount specified and acknowledge that verbal requests can only be made by the responsible party since no credit card information is kept on file.
My signature below confirms that I have read these billing policies and my financial obligations as pertains to the physicians of Soleil Surgical LLC.
