Patient Rights to Privacy and Confidentiality
Patients have the right to be treated with courtesy and respect.
Patients will be treated with an appreciation of their individual dignity and protection of their need for privacy, to include the confidentiality of the medical record.
Patients have a right to expect that all communications and records pertaining to their care be treated as confidential by Florida Neurovascular Institute, except in cases such as suspected abuse or public hazards which are required by law to be reported.
Please make sure you understand the requirements of your insurance company prior to your visit.
If you are required by your insurance company to obtain an authorization (HMO, POS, etc) by your Primary Care Physician please do so prior to your initial visit to Florida Neurovascular Institute.
Copays and prior unpaid balances will be due at the time of your visit.
If Medicare is your primary insurance and you do not have a supplemental (secondary) insurance the 20% of Medicare allowable fees will be due at each appointment.
A 40.00 cancellation fee will be applied if you do not contact our office within 48 hours prior to your appointment.
