I acknowledge that no guarantees or warranties have been made with respect to treatment or services to be provided by VirtualCare2go. I understand that all supplies, medical devices and other goods provided to Patient are provided by VirtualCare2go AS IS and VirtualCare2go disclaims any expressed or implied warranties.
I have been provided information regarding Patient Rights and Responsibilities. This information tells me how to register a complaint or grievance that I might have relating to Patient’s care at VirtualCare2go.
I agree that if a VirtualCare2go employee or provider is exposed to Patient’s blood or other bodily fluid, pursuant to Texas law, VirtualCare2go may test Patient to determine the presence of communicable diseases including Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and hepatitis. I understand that these test results will be kept confidential.
I acknowledge that VirtualCare2go may, in its sole discretion, remove, retain, or dispose of any tissue or body parts removed from Patient.
I understand that VirtualCare2go can provide notifications to my cell phone. These texts are Do Not Reply texts for informational purposes only and are not intended as a form of two-way communication. I acknowledge that standard text messaging rates and fees will apply, text messaging utilizes a public telephone network and full security is not guaranteed, and any person with access to my phone will be able to see these messages unless I take steps to protect my phone with a password or PIN.
I have received the VirtualCare2go Notice of Privacy Practices. Any questions or concerns may be directed to VirtualCare2go Privacy Officer.
I understand that Patient’s medical records are confidential and cannot be disclosed without my written authorization except as authorized by law. Authorized disclosures are addressed in the Notice of Privacy Practices I have received. I understand that Patient’s medical information includes past, present and future information and may include genetic testing / counseling, communicable disease information including Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), records related to mental health treatment / psychiatric care and alcohol / substance abuse diagnosis or treatment (collectively, Medical Information). I authorize release of that Medical Information, as part of Patient’s medical record. I understand that VirtualCare2go must keep Patient’s medical records for a time period required by law and then may dispose of them as permitted or required by law.
I authorize VirtualCare2go to use Patient’s Medical Information for Patient’s treatment and related services. Unless I object below, I authorize VirtualCare2go to release and send Patient’s Medical Information to Patient’s non- VirtualCare2go health care providers electronically and/or through a Health Information Exchange, an organization that provides services to enable the electronic sharing of health-related information. Medical Information disclosed pursuant to this authorization may be used for treatment, payment and operational purposes. The Medical Information disclosed may become part of my non-VirtualCare2go health care providers’ medical records and may be re-disclosed by the recipient and no longer protected by state or federal privacy laws.

This consent is valid unless I have withdrawn it.
I agree to pay for the full billed charges associated with goods and services provided to Patient regardless of any applicable insurance or benefit payments and understand that all amounts are due upon request and are payable to VirtualCare2go.

An estimate of the anticipated charges is available upon request. I understand that estimates may vary significantly from the final charges because of a variety of factors such as the course of treatment, intensity of care, Provider practices, and the need to provide additional goods and services.
I understand that the goods and services that I or Patient request to be provided to Patient may not be covered under Medicare/Medicaid as being reasonable and medically necessary for Patient’s care. I understand that Medicare/Medicaid or their insuring agent determine the medical necessity of the goods and services that are requested for Patient. If Medicaid determines that certain goods and services are not medically necessary for Patient’s care and I request such goods and services be provided despite Medicare/Medicaid’s denial, I understand I am solely responsible for payment for those goods and services. If Patient is a Medicare/Medicaid managed care Patient, these provisions may not apply. I certify that the information given by or on behalf of Patient in applying for payment under Medicare/Medicaid is correct. I authorize the release of medical or other information about Patient to the Social Security Administration, intermediaries, or carriers as needed for related Medicare/Medicaid claims.
