I understand that I am a self-pay patient, and I will be responsible for paying for any services received. These fees will not be billed to my insurance company because The Vine Pediatrics and Lactation PLLC does not submit claims to insurance and does not bill insurance.
I acknowledge that the fee is a monetary payment for one test, and payment must be sent by Zelle (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Paypal (email@example.com). Payment is due prior to any services received. I will receive a PDF document report by email which will include receipt of payment, result of the test, and recommendations within 24 hours of the test.

I will not hold the Practice, Dr. Sharifa Glass, or the Practice's staff liable for adverse reactions, progression of illness, or future illness.
I understand that the test result should not be used in place of CDC recommendations to social distance, wear a mask, and wash hands to decrease transmission of COVID-19 and other infections.
