Appointment Details

WITHOUT YOUR PHOTO ID YOU WILL ONLY BE ELIGIBLE FOR INJECTIONS

NO SHOW POLICY- To assure that all of our patients ace access to care when needed by maximizing the utilization of available appointments, you (the patient) are required to cancel your scheduled appointment with appropriate prior notice (24 hours.) Failure to cancel your appointment without 24-hour notice is considered a DzNo Show.dz If you have two DzNo Showdz occurrences, a $50.00 penalty fee will be charged to your account.

IF YOU HAVE AN HMO- You will NOT receive any injections at your first visit. Any HMO requires authorization and in order to obtain that authorization proper documentation of the initial visit must be done.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN HMO- Your initial appointment is a consultation only. If you were referred for an injection there is no guarantee you will receive it at your initial visit. It is possible, but again, no guarantee. Getting any injection is a decision that is made between you and the doctor at the time of your visit. Ultimately it is at physician’s discretion, regardless of any prior treatment or referrals you may have received.

SOME INSURANCES- Will only cover injections if they are performed in a surgery center. If this is the case you injection will be scheduled for a later date during your initial appointment.

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING IN THIS MATTER

LIEN AND LETTER OF PROTECTION

I hereby authorize and direct my attorneys (whether now or hereafter representing me) to pay directly to Certified Spine and Pain, all sums due and owing for all services rendered by Certified Spine and Pain, including but not limited to, medical services rendered, supplies provided, reports made or duplicated, depositions given, or time spent as an expert or witness in my case. I hereby give and grant unto Certified Spine and Pain a first priority lien upon and to any and all monies that I may have the right to or benefit of, or come to have the right to or benefit of, from any source whatsoever, including but not limited to any settlement, judgment, recovery, or other source of funds, to the extent of all sums owed by me to Certified spine and pain stemming from my care or treatment, or any case I may institute involving, in whole or part, said care or treatment. This lien is prior in dignity and superior to any right in any such funds that anyone else may possibly claim, including my attorney(s). I authorize and hereby instruct my attorneys to withhold such sums from any insurance settlement, judgment, verdict or other source of funds that I may have the right to or benefit of, or come to have the right to or benefit of, as may necessary to fully pay and adequately protect Certified spine and pain as first priority, including all funds owed to me from my case by way of the tortfeasor(s), insurance payments, judgment, verdict, or other source which may be paid to my attorney or myself.

I fully understand that I am personally and directly fully responsible to Certified Spine and Pain for all medical bills for services rendered to me, whether or not submitted to any insurer or other entity for payment in whole or part. I further understand that this agreement is made solely for my protection in consideration of Certified Spine and Pain providing me care and treatment that I believe to be reasonable to obtain or medically necessary, from my perspective as the patient, and for Certified Spine and Pain awaiting payment for said care and treatment. The physicians of Certified Spine and Pain may contract with an insurance plan that they or I participate in; however, this provider may or may not elect to bill my insurance or accept payment(s) from that insurance company, and in any event, I hereby waive any right I may be perceived to have to request or require that Certified Spine and Pain or any of its physicians submit any bills to any insurance carrier. I understand that nothing herein releases me from my absolute and ultimate responsibility and obligation to pay Certified Spine and Pain in full for services rendered, I further understand that my obligation of payment is not contingent on any settlement, judgment, verdict, or anything else whatsoever.

I agree to keep Certified Spine and Pain apprised of the name and address of all attorneys who represent me. Notification of any such changes must be made to Certified Spine and Pain within ten (10) days, and in any event, before any case or claim settlement is made, or any funds are paid (whether by a tortfeasor, insurance company, or any other payer whatsoever) to me, or to my attorney(s) on my behalf. I instruct any/all attorney(s) who represent me to honor this agreement and fulfill it, whether or not they sign a copy of this Lien and Letter of Protection, and also understand that if my attorney does not wish to cooperate in protecting Certified Spine and Pain such does not change the attorney’s or my obligation and the attorney’s signature on this document is not necessary for the instructions I give him/her herein to bind said attorney. In the event of my attorney’s failure to cooperate despite my instructions made herein ( to which Certified Spine and Pain is an express, intended, third-party beneficiary), such will be a breach by me of this agreement entitling Certified Spine and Pain to all remedies available at law and in equity, and Certified Spine and Pain will be immediately released from any obligations under this Agreement, including that it shall not have to await payment and can require me to pay the account on a current basis.

By my signature below I established that I have read, understood, and consented to the terms of this agreement.

Effective Date: This agreement becomes effective when the Patient signs the agreement below.

LIEN AND LETTER OF PROTECTION

In the event any dispute arises as to the charge for any services rendered by Certified Spine and Pain. I hereby authorized and direct my attorney to withhold from any source of funds that I may have the right to or benefit of, or come to have the right to or benefit of, the full sum claimed by Certified Spine and Pain until said time as the matter is settled by compromise or judgment. I also agree that I shall be responsible for all costs, including attorney’s fees and costs of collection, incurred by Certified Spine and Pain whether or not there be any litigation between us involving or concerning this agreement, such costs, including attorney’s fees and collection costs, to be payable by me to Certified Spine and Pain on demand.

The undersigned, being the attorney for the above patient, does hereby recognize the instructions given me by the patient, my client, and I do agree to observe all the terms of the above and agree to withhold such sums from any insurance payment, settlement, judgment, verdict, or other source whatsoever as may be necessary to protect and pay Certified Spine and Pain the full amount of all sums billed by, due, or to become due Certified Spine and Pain from or on behalf of the above- named patient (including but not limited to any monies from any tortfeasor, insurance company, or other payer whatsoever). If I receive money on the patient’s behalf from any source, including money paid in this case, then I agree to hold and preserve sufficient funds to fully satisfy the sums due and owing Certified Spine and Pain, or to become due and owing to it according to the terms of this document. If a dispute arises, payout will be made only upon agreement of all parties or court order. I agree that all sums will be due immediately upon being billed by Certified Spine and Pain, and must be paid to Certified Spine and Pain from funds received by me on behalf of the patient, my client, within ten (10) days from the resolution of the subject litigation relating to my client, or upon my coming into possession of any other funds whatsoever for or on behalf of the patient.

In addition, I further agree that any and all charges for medical records duplication, review of records, independent medical evaluations, depositions, conferences, expert testimony, and photocopying are not charges payable upon a contingent basis and that I, the patient’s attorney, am fully responsible for such charges when I request any such thing/ service. These charges are payable to Certified Spine and Pain regardless of the outcome of the litigation and even if there is no recovery obtained from a third party to pay for these services.

I agree to notify Certified Spine and Pain in writing within ten (10) days, if the above named patient changes his/her status as my client and I am no longer the patient’s attorney. Lastly, I agree that any action brought on account of any matter set forth above shall be brought in the Circuit Court in Palm Beach County Florida, as the exclusive venue therefore.

MEDICATION AGREEMENT AND INFORMED CONSENT

As a patient of Dr. Edwin Maldonado’s, I understand that I may be prescribed medications that are
considered addictive. Such medications include narcotics, tranquilizers, and muscle relaxants. Although those medications may be appropriate in my care, I understand that I bear the following responsibilities:

FOR YOUR SAFETY

1. Patients receiving narcotic medications from pain management may not receive any narcotics prescripts from any other physician or clinic office. If you are receiving any narcotic medications from another physician’s office, clinic or emergency room, you may be discharged from our practice.
2. I will take the medications as prescribed and not more unless approved by my physician, and I will NOT take another person’s prescribed narcotic medication.
3. All time- released medications should be taken whole. They are not to be crushed, ground up or mutilated before taken.
4. Your medications are your own. Keep them in a safe place. Do NOT share them with your spouse, friends, or anyone else.
5. Prescriptions will be accompanied by an office visit.
6. It is the policy of the practice that only the patient will be able to sign for prescriptions.
7. All patients must understand that narcotic medications are potentially dangerous.
8. All patients receiving narcotic prescriptions will sign and receive a copy of the agreement.
9. I understand that alcohol may potentate the effects and duration of my medication. I acknowledge that I have been advised to avoid alcohol consumption.
10. Routine urine analysis may be performed at the discretion of Dr. Edwin Maldonado.
11. Any evidence of illicit drugs found in your urine analysis testing may result in discharge from our practice.
12. If you lose your prescription, you will not receive a refill until the scheduled time of your next appointment.
13. If your prescription is stolen, a police report will be required before any additional medications are written.
14. Pharmacy miscounts are your responsibility and not that of the pharmacy or Dr. Edwin Maldonado.
15. The doctor’s office may and will call local pharmacies for confirmation of prescriptions.
16. It is the policy of the practice not to renew or prescribe pain medications after hours, on the weekend or without patient’s medical records at hand.

If any of the above requirements are not met by myself , I understand that no additional medications will be prescribed and that all of my treating physicians and pharmacies may be notified of my non- compliance. Additionally, I may be discharged from this medical practice and I may be asked to seek future pain treatment from another physician and/or undergo detoxification. I agree to the terms and conditions outlined above in this document.
