Effective January 01, 2007, I have made the decision to stop participating in any formal medical
malpractice insurance. As required by law and in the interests of good faith notification of this
decision, the following statement is disclosed:

"Under Florida law, physicians are generally required to carry medical malpractice insurance or
otherwise demonstrate financial responsibility to cover potential claims for medical malpractice. YOUR
permitted under Florida law subject to certain conditions. Florida law imposes penalties against
noninsured physicians who fail to satisfy adverse judgments arising from claims of medical
malpractice. This notice is provided pursuant to Florida law."

Florida regulations provides for a maximum limit of liability. I am requesting my patients to volitionally further
limit this imposed limit to $10,000 (ten thousand dollars) which is 1/10th (one tenth) of the regulatory-imposed
limit). In fairness to other patients who do accept this limit of liability, the limit will be considered a condition
of treatment. Individuals whom do not desire to participate in this limitation or determine that this decision is
not acceptable for any reason will be provided with assistance in obtaining treatment from another psychiatrist,
should they so desire that assistance.

Confidentiality is an inherently essential aspect of meaningful psychiatric treatment. Nonetheless, it is
occasionally important to allow family members or significant individuals others with the opportunity to
express and concerns and/or provide Dr. McClure with collateral information or concerns. Every effort
will be taken to respond to these situations in a manner that is maximally respectful of your privacy
within the confines of safe treatment. Any desired limitations to this authorized communication
(example: Dr. McClure to receive information but not provide any information other than confirmation
of my treatment by participation in the communication) should be noted below.

I agree to allow Dr. McClure to acknowledge my treatment and give and receive communications with
the following individual(s):
___________________________________               ________________________________________
         (name of individual)                            (limits of authorization, if any)

services covered under Medicare Part B pursuant to Section 4507 of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997. The Physician has

respect to the Services, even if covered by Medicare Part B.

        Patient is not currently in an emergency or urgent health care situation.

        Patient acknowledges that neither Medicare's fee limitations nor any other Medicare reimbursement regulations
apply to charges for the Services.

       Patient acknowledges that Medi-Gap plans will not provide payment or reimbursement for the Services because
payment is not made under the Medicare program, and other supplemental insurance plans may likewise deny

        Patient acknowledges that they have a right, as a Medicare beneficiary, to obtain Medicare-covered items and
services from physicians and practitioners who have not opted-out of Medicare, and that the patient is not compelled to enter
into private contracts that apply to other Medicare-covered services furnished by other physicians or practitioners who have
not opted-out.

        Patient agrees to be responsible to make payment in full for the Services, and acknowledges that Physician will not
submit a Medicare claim for the Services and that no Medicare reimbursement will be provided.

        Patient understands that Medicare payment will not be made for any items or services furnished by the physician
that would have otherwise been covered by Medicare if there were no private contract and a proper Medicare claim were

        Patient acknowledges that a copy of this contract has been made available to him.

      Patient agrees to reimburse Physician for any costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees that result from violation of this
Agreement by Patient or his beneficiaries.

                           Psychiatric Consultation Questionnaire
I, the client (or person acting for the client), request that Suncoast Psychiatric Medical Clinic, LLC
provide psychiatric professional services to me or to the client in whose behalf I am responsible. I
acknowledge the following:
     1. I understand that I will be provided with a complete copy of this Psychiatric Consultation
         Questionnaire in its’ entirety, upon request.
     2. I agree to the limits of confidentiality provided above and authorize the breach of those limits
         to the individuals listed within limits so annotated.
     3. I understand that Suncoast Psychiatric Medical Clinic, LLC does NOT participate as an “in
         network” provider with any and all insurance providers that I may have. Moreover, Suncoast
         Psychiatric Medical Clinic, LLC does NOT directly submit insurance claims on the behalf of
         patients. As such, I am directly responsible for paying the fee for services rendered at the
         time of the rendering of such service.
     4. I understand that I may pursue reimbursement of said fees at my own discretion (other than
         any claims that could otherwise be made to Medicare, which are exempt from reimbursement).
         An invoice detailing all charges, diagnostic codes and other relevant information will be
         provided to me by Suncoast Psychiatric Medical Clinic, LLC for all payments rendered to
         facilitate any such reimbursement.
     5. I understand that payment is due in full at the time of services rendered and that failure to
         make appropriate payment at that time is grounds for termination of treatment and/or the
         charging of additional credit fees.
     6. I understand the notification provided in this document of the decision of Michael J. McClure,
         M.D., Ph.D. and Suncoast Psychiatric Medical Clinic, LLC to forego participation in any
         medical malpractice insurance.
     7. I voluntarily agree to limit any medical malpractice claims, should they arise, to a maximum of
         $10,000 (ten thousand dollars). I have been notified that this limit is 1/10 (one tenth) of the
         regulatory limit, but nevertheless agree to abide by this limit of my own volition.
     8. I understand that I have the right to NOT participate in any of the limits provided by the policies
         described within this document. However, such decision would also constitute the decision to
         not enter into treatment with Dr. McClure/ Suncoast Psychiatric Medical Clinic, LLC.
     9. I understand that should I not agree to these limits, or at some later time determine that these
         limits are no longer acceptable, I should notify Dr. McClure or his agent immediately. I
         understand that I will subsequently be provided with assistance in obtaining an alternative
         provider, should I desire and request that assistance.

I, the psychiatrist, have discussed the issues above with the client (and/or the person acting for the
client). My observations of the person's behavior and responses give me no reason to believe that this
person is not fully competent to give informed and willing consent.
