I will not hold my doctor, or any other member of his/her staff, responsible for any errors or omissions that I have made in the completion of this form.

Fees & Payments

We make every effort to keep down the cost of your care. You can help by paying upon completion of each visit. Other arrangements can be made with our office manager depending upon special circumstances. An estimate of the charge for any procedure or surgery you may require will be given to you upon request. If you have any dental and/or medical insurance, we will be glad to fill out the proper forms, but please complete the identifying information on this form.

Please remember that insurance is considered a method of reimbursing the patient for fees paid to the doctor and is not a substitute for payment. Some companies pay fixed allowances for certain procedures, and others pay a percentage of the charge. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, co-insurance, or any other balance not paid for by your insurance company. You will be responsible for all collection costs, attorney's fees, and court costs.

In addition, if medically necessary, I authortize the release of any information acquired in the course of my examination and treatment to my other doctors and/or insurance carriers. I permit messages to be left on my phone and/or mobile phone concerning my appointment.

I hereby acknowledge that a copy of this office's Notice of Privacy Practices has been made available to me. I have been given the opportunity to ask any questions I may have regarding this Notice.

Our Financial Policy

Thank you for choosing North Jersey Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery as your healthcare provider. We are committed to your treatment being successful. The following is a statement of our Financial Policy, which we require you to read and sign prior to any treatment. All patients must complete our Information and Insurance Form before seeing the doctors.

PAYMENT IS DUE AT TIME OF SERVICE.
WE ACCEPT ALL MAJOR CREDIT CARDS, CHECKS, AND CASH.
WE ALSO OFFER CARECREDIT®

REGARDING INSURANCE
The balance of your account is your responsibility, whether your insurance company pays or not. We cannot bill your insurance company unless you provide us with complete and accurate insurance information. Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. We are not a party to that contract. In the event that we do not accept assignment of benefits, we require that you make prior arrangements for payment. Please be aware that some, and perhaps all, of the services provided may be non-covered services and not considered reasonable and necessary under the Medicare Program and/or other medical or dental insurances.

USUAL AND CUSTOMARY RATES
Our practice is committed to providing the best treatment for our patients, and we charge what is usual and customary for our area. You are responsible for payment regardless of any insurance company’s arbitrary determination of usual and customary rates. 

All patients are responsible for full payment at the time of services. The adult accompanying a minor is responsible
for full payment. If payment is not received and collection proceeding occurs, you will be responsible for the 35%
collection fee as well as any court costs and all attorney and legal fees incurred.

Thank you for understanding our Financial Policy. Please let us know if you have questions or concerns. 

I have read the Financial Policy; I understand and agree to this Financial Policy.
