                                          Family Matters of Coastal Georgia, Inc.
 I hereby instruct and direct my insurance company to pay by check made out and mailed to my provider Molly McCue, Carlene H.
                                               Taylor, Judy K. Rath and/or their Associates.
                                              Family Matters Counseling: of Coastal Georgia
                                                             126 Osborne Road
                                                           St. Mary’s GA 31558
Or to pay by direct deposit if electronic payments have been prearranged, for the professional and/or medical expenses, benefits
allowable and other wise payable to me under by current insurance policy and as payment toward the total charges for the
professional services rendered. This is a direct assignment of my rights and benefits under this policy. This payment will not exceed
my indebtedness to the above mentioned assignee. I have agreed to pay in a current manner any balance of said professional
service charges over and above the insurance payment. A photocopy of this assignment shall be considered as effective and as valid
as the original. I also authorize the release of any information pertinent to my case to any insurance company, adjuster or attorney
involved in this case. I authorize the provider to initiate a complaint to the insurance commissioner for any reason on my behalf.

Statement of Financial Responsibility

Most insurance companies require an authorization for mental health coverage. The insured is generally responsible for obtaining
that authorization. FMC files insurance claims as a courtesy to clients, and will accept the assignment of insurance benefits in lieu
of payment if the insurance has been verified/authorized prior to service. Payment in full is due at the time of service if insurance
has not been verified or approved. Co-payments and payments against unsatisfied deductibles are due at this time of service unless
other arrangements have been made in advance with the provider. An EOB showing that your deductible has been met or other
statement from your insurance company should be brought to your first visit to ensure correct billing. If there is an outstanding
balance on your account, you will be notified by a statement. Statements are sent out on the first of each month and payable by the
10th of the month. A late fee of 10% will be assessed for statement balances beyond the 15th of the month. We accept payment in
the form of cash or check and effective January 1, 2008 by Visa or Mastercard. A fee of $35 will be assessed for returned checks.
Appointments are made to reserve the providers time especially for you. Cancellations require 24 hours notice. Appointments
cancelled with less than 24 hours notice or “no show” appointments will be billed at the full fee for the time reserved. Clients may
be asked to leave a credit card on file to authorize changes for late cancellations or “no shows” if necessary. Excessive cancellations
or no shows may result in termination of service by the provider with 30 days notice to the client.

treatment. My responsibilities in treatment include informing the therapist of any information that may be
relevant to the problems or conditions being treated, assisting in setting goals for treatment, following

                 Notice of Policies and Practices to Protect the Privacy of Your Health Information
 THIS NOTICE DESCRIBES HOW PSYCHOLOGICAL AND MEDICAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED
AND DISCLOSED AND HOW YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION. PLEASE REVIEW IT CAREFULLY.

We are required by law to maintain the privacy of your health information and provide you with a description of our privacy
 ractices. This notice will also describe your rights and certain obligations we have regarding the use and disclosure of your
 ealth information.

                                      PLEASE REVIEW THIS NOTICE CAREFULLY

 our health information is personal. We are committed to protecting your health information. We create a record of the care and
ervices you receive at this office. We need this record to provide you with quality care and comply with certain legal
equirements. This Notice applies to all of the records of your care generated by this office whether made by your therapist or
ne of the office's employees.

  Uses and Disclosures for Treatment, Payment, and Health Care Operations

 he following describes the different ways that your protected health information (PHI) may be used or disclosed by this office.
 PHI" refers to information in your health record that could identify you. For clarification, we have included some examples. Not
 very possible use of disclosure is specifically mentioned. However, all of the ways we are committed to use and disclose your
 PHI" will fit within one of these general categories:
                   For Treatment. "Treatment" is when we provide, coordinate, or manage your health care and other services
                     related to your health care. An example of treatment would be when we consult with another health care
                     provider, such as your family physician or another mental health provider.
                   For Payment. "Payment" is when we obtain reimbursement for your healthcare. Examples of payment are
                     when we disclose your PHI to your health insurer to obtain reimbursement for your health care or to
                     determine eligibility or coverage. We may also tell your health plan insurer about a treatment you are going
                     to receive in order to obtain prior approval or to determine whether your plan will cover or continue to cover
                     your treatment.
                   For Healthcare Operations. "Healthcare Operations" are activities that related to the performance and
                     operation of our practice. Examples of healthcare operations are quality assessment and improvement
                     activities, business-related matters such as audits and administrative services, and case management and
                     care coordination. We may use and disclose health information to provide you with appointment
                     information. This may be done with voice mail, messages, post cards, and other mailings.
                   Use. "Use" applies only to activities within our office such as sharing, employing, applying, utilizing,
                     examining, and analyzing information that identifies you.
                   Disclosure. “Disclosure” applies to activities outside of our office such as releasing, transferring, or
                     providing access to information about you to other parties.

I. Uses and Disclosures Requiring Authorization

We may use or disclose PHI for purposes outside of treatment, payment, or health care operations when your appropriate
uthorization is obtained. An “authorization” is written permission above and beyond the general consent that permits only
pecific disclosures. In those instances when we are asked for information for purposes outside of treatment, payment or health
are operations, we will obtain an authorization from you before releasing this information. We will also need to obtain an
uthorization before releasing your Psychotherapy Notes. “Psychotherapy Notes” are notes we have made about our


                            Family Matters Of Coastal Georgia, Inc. 912-882-6448 Fax: 912-882-6804
                                             Family Matters of Coastal Georgia, Inc.
 onversation during a private, group, joint, or family counseling session, which we have kept separate from the rest of your
medical record. These notes are given a greater degree of protection than PHI.

 ou may revoke all such authorizations (of PHI or Psychotherapy Notes) at any time, provided each revocation is in writing.
 ou may not revoke an authorization to the extent that (1) we have relied on that authorization; or (2) if the authorization was
 btained as a condition of obtaining insurance coverage, law provides the insurer the right to contest the claim under the policy.

II. Uses and Disclosures with Neither Consent nor Authorization

We may use or disclose PHI without your consent or authorization in the following circumstances:

                   Child Abuse. If we have reasonable cause to suspect child abuse or neglect, we must report this suspicion to
                    the appropriate authorities as required by law.
                   Adult and Domestic Abuse. If we have reasonable cause to suspect you have been criminally abused, we
                    must report this suspicion to the appropriate authorities as required by law.
                   Health Oversight Activities. If we receive a subpoena or other lawful request from the Department of Health
                    or the Georgia Composite Board for Professional Counseling, we must disclose the relevant PHI pursuant to
                    that subpoena or lawful request.
                   Judicial and Administrative Proceedings. If you are involved in a court proceeding and a request is made for
                    information about your diagnosis and treatment or the records thereof, such information is privileged under
                    state law, and we will not release information without your written authorization or a court order. The
                    privilege does not apply when you are being evaluated by a third party or where the evaluation is court
                    ordered. You will be informed in advance if this is the case.
                   Lawsuits and Disputes: If you are involved in a lawsuit or a dispute, we may use your PHI to defend the
                    office or to respond to a court order.
                   Law Enforcement. We may release PHI about you if required by law when asked to do so by a law
                    enforcement official.
                   Serious Threat to Health or Safety. If you communicate to us a threat of physical violence against a
                    reasonably identifiable third person and you have the apparent intent and ability to carry out that threat in
                    the foreseeable future, we may disclose relevant PHI and take the reasonable steps permitted by law to
                    prevent the threatened harm from occurring. If we believe that there is an imminent risk that you will inflict
                    serious physical harm on yourself, we may disclose information in order to protect you.
                   Worker’s Compensation. We may disclose protected health information regarding you as authorized by and
                    to the extent necessary to comply with laws relating to worker’s compensation or other similar programs,
                    established by law, that provide benefits for work-related injuries or illness without regard to fault.

V. Patient’s Rights and Therapist’s Duties

 ou have the following rights regarding the PHI that this office maintains about you.

                   Right to Request Restrictions. You have the right to request restrictions on certain uses and disclosures of
                    protected health information. However, we are not required to agree to a restriction you request.
                   Right to Receive Confidential Communications by Alternative Means and at Alternative Locations. You
                    have the right to request and receive confidential communications of PHI by alternative means and at
                    alternative locations. (For example, you may not want a family member to know that you are being seen at
                    our office. On your request, we will send your bills to another address.) To request confidential
                    communications, you must complete our request form in writing and submit it to the Privacy Officer. We
                    will accommodate all reasonable requests.

                            Family Matters of Coastal Georgia, Inc.
   Right to Inspect and Copy. You have the right to inspect or obtain a copy (or both) of PHI in our mental
    health and billing records used to make decisions about you for as long as the PHI is maintained in the
