Telehealth will occur primarily through interactive audio, video, telephone and/or other audio/video communications.

    I understand that the provider is responsible for determining whether or not the condition or conditions being diagnosed during this telehealth encounter is appropriate for this form of interaction/communication.

    I understand I have the following rights with respect to telehealth:

    I understand that telehealth-based services and care may not be as complete and in-person services.

I also understand that there are potential risks and benefits associated with any form of health treatment, and that despite my efforts and efforts of my provider, my condition may not improve, or may have the potential to get worse.

    I understand that I may benefit from telehealth services, but that results cannot be guaranteed or assured. I understand that the use of Skype, and Google audio/video systems are not 100% secure and may have issues with Wi-Fi connectivity. All attempts to keep information confidential while using these systems will be made but a guarantee of 100% confidentiality cannot be made with inherent issues with these communication systems.

To that end, I understand and agree that my provider and Atlantic Dermatology Associates, PC have taken reasonable security measures to protect my personal health information such as, by way of example but not by limitation, name, date of birth, date of service, password-protected screen savers, and other reasonable and reliable authentication techniques. I will not hold Atlantic Dermatology Associates, PC, or its staff liable for and thereby indemnify the provider and Atlantic Dermatology Associates, PC, against gathering or use of client information by these service providers and against information lost due to technical failures.

    I understand that certain risks unique and specific to telehealth, including but not limited to, the possibility that telehealth consultations or other communications by my provider to others regarding my treatment could be disrupted or distorted by technical failures or could be interrupted or could be accessed by unauthorized persons.

    Payment Agreement/Assignment of Benefits: I agree to be responsible for any co-payments, deductibles, or other charges from Atlantic Dermatology Associates, PC, that are not covered or paid by insurance or other third party payors except as prohibited by any state or federal law, or any agreement between my insurance company and Atlantic Dermatology Associates, PC.
