Financial Responsibility: I understand that insurance billing is a service provided as a courtesy and that I am at all times financially responsible for any charges not covered by health care benefits, regardless of the outcome of my suit or negotiations as presented by VASTA Physical Therapy Inc.
I am responsible for the entire bill or balance of the bill as determined by the clinic or my health care insurer if the submitted claims or any part of them are denied for payment (for any reason) or are paid directly to me.
It is my responsibility to notify the office staff of any changes in my health care coverage.
VASTA staff may attempt to verify the PT benefits provided by my insurance company in an effort to anticipate what services they may pay for; I understand that there is no way for VASTA to guarantee the accuracy of the information provided by my insurance company. In some cases, exact insurance benefits cannot be determined until the insurance company receives the claim.
VASTA staff may attempt to track visits authorized by my insurance company. This, also, is done as a courtesy and I recognize that the accuracy of this information is not guaranteed.
