CONSENT FOR CARE AND TREATMENT
I, the undersigned, do hereby agree and give my consent for Granger Oral Surgery & Dental Implants to provide medical/dental evaluation, care, and/or treatment to me or someone for whom I am authorized to make medical decisions.

FINANCIAL POLICY STATEMENT
At Granger Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, we make every effort to provide you with the finest care and most convenient financial options. We will work to maximize your dental benefits for covered procedures. Payment is due at the time services are rendered. As a courtesy, we will file a claim with your dental benefit plan. Please remember that dental benefits are considered a reimbursement method for patient payments and are not a substitute for services rendered. If your dental benefit plan does not pay on your claim within 30 days from the date of service, you become responsible for any outstanding balance on your account.
We have opted out of the Medicare program and are not providers for Medicaid. If you have Medicare benefits, we ask that you let us know so you can sign a contract explaining in detail the terms of opt-out status.
In the event that the account is not paid in accordance with the financial arrangements made at discharge or within 90 days, the account will be turned over to a collection agency. The patient or responsible party will be responsible for all processing fees and collection costs, including reasonable attorney fees, if the account is placed in the hands of a collection agency or attorney.
