Consent for Treatment: I consent to CareForceMD and give consent to my physician, the employees, and all other persons caring for me, to treat me in ways they judge are beneficial to me. I understand that this care may include physical examinations, diagnostic procedures, blood test, and medical/surgical treatment deemed necessary by my attending physician, his/her associates or designees. I certify that no guarantees have been made to me regarding the outcome of this care. The use of virtual medical technology may be included in the diagnostic processes of care.
Authorization for Release of Medical Information/Assignments of Benefits: I give permission to CareForceMD and physician providers to release medical information to insurance carriers or to any government charged with fiscal responsibility for the payment of medical services rendered; and, I hereby authorize the clinic and physicians benefits otherwise payable to me, directly to CareForceMD and/or the physician provider. I consent to having any monies, received by the provider of services, on my behalf, to be applied to my outstanding account. I also assume full responsibility for payment of any charges for the medical services provided.
Medicare Screening Form (MSP): I certify that the information given is true, correct, and accurate.
Right to Participate In and Direct Health Care Decisions: Federal law requires that you be given the following information: You have the right to have medical treatment options clearly explained to you. You also have the right to decide what treatment you will receive and what treatment you will decline. In addition, you have the right to formulate an advanced directive (living will, appointment of an agent or durable power of attorney for health care) regarding treatment. An advanced directive is a written statement which relates to the provision of care when you are incapacitated. Through a living will, you may direct what treatment you want or do not want if you become terminally ill. You may also appoint an agent to make medical decisions for when you are not terminally ill but incapacitated, either through a durable power of attorney or the appointment of an agent for health care. Copies of the living will form and appointment of agent form are available upon request, and a member of our Spiritual Care Department is available to discuss these advance directives with you. Please note that your right to direct treatment does not mean that a physician or clinic must follow your instruction if they believe it is seriously wrong. They may notify you that they are unwilling to abide by your instruction. If you wish to stand by your instruction, it is your responsibility to find a physician that will agree to follow your instruction.
Personal Valuables: I understand that CareForceMD will not be responsible for personal effects (including money, eyeglasses, dentures, jewelry, and documents) retained in my possession, or any articles belonging to me. I accept full responsibility for keeping such items in my possession. I understand that belongings left behind will be retained for 14 days from the date of discharge.
Responsibilities for Education & Safety: I have been informed of my role in helping to facilitate the safe delivery of care. This means that I am responsible for providing accurate and complete information to CareForceMD staff and my provider. I will report unexpected changes in condition, asking as many questions as needed to assure my understanding, safety, and comfort level. I will follow the instructions, accepting consequences if instructions are not followed. I will follow CareForceMD rules and regulations and act with consideration and respect towards CareForceMD staff, property, and other patients.
