Consent for Treatment

Consent for Treatment

Medical care at Hilltop Medical Clinic requires a relationship between the Patient, the Providers, the Clinic Staff, the Clinic Managers, and the Clinic Owners. The relationship requires trust and mutual respect.  In addition to the policies noted below, signing this form authorizes the medical providers at the Clinic, to take a history and perform a medical exam in order to diagnose and develop a treatment plan.

Scope of Treatment

  • Hilltop Medical Clinics provides urgent care services.  This is different from a medical home or primary care provider, who is responsible for preventive care and management of chronic medical conditions.
  • We encourage all patients to have a primary care provider.
  • We recognize that that is not always possible, so patients use HTMC for their primary care services.  Of course, we do not want your medical care interrupted, but you are responsible for keeping follow up appointments and preventive care services.  HTMC does not have a system to remind patients of appointments.

Clinic Policies

  • Examination of sensitive or personal areas will be in the presence of a chaperon. A family member is not a legal chaperon.
  • HTMC and its providers will not prescribe medications for assisted suicide. This requires an ongoing relationship with a primary care provider or hospice provider.
  • HTMC does not provider medical marijuana prescriptions.
  • Prescriptions of controlled medications require a picture ID and fingerprint to be released to the patient. Prescriptions for patients under 18 must be released to the parent or legal guardian.
  • Aggressive behavior will not be tolerated and will result in an immediate dismissal from the practice.
  • Dismissal from the practice. An explanation or justifications is not required. We will notify you by registered mail and continue to provider medical care for 30 days.
  • HTMC is a nondiscriminatory environment, however, genetic and therefore racial and cultural differences are used to make medical decisions based on scientific studies that support this approach.
  • Animal bites are reported as required by law.

Patient

  • You have the right to obtain a second opinion, refuse treatment, or change your mind without judgment or pressure.
  • You are encouraged and requested to ask questions in order to understand the diagnosis and treatment options for your medical problem.
  • Consent forms for minor procedures and injections are not required for treatment. Receiving treatment is acknowledgment that you understood the risks and benefits and agreed to proceed.
  • Results of sensitive tests cannot be sent by text, e-mail or answering phones.  You must call in for the results.

Provider

  • Providers frequently have to ask sensitive, personal questions to diagnose medical conditions. Parents should excuse themselves from the exam room, if they do not want to hear the answers.
  • Providers are not obligated to provide medical care or services that they feel are not warranted.
  •  Providers are required by law to report episodes of complete loss of consciousness to the health department.
  • Providers are required to report any suspected episode of child or spousal abuse to the police.

Medical Records

  • Medical Records will be maintained in electronic format for the duration of time required by California State law.
  • You may obtain a copy of your records at any time in digital format or as a printed copy. Charges apply for copies of your medical records.
  • Employees at HTMC may contact and disclose medical information to the persons listed as guardians and emergency contacts, without additional notification or permission from you, the patient.

Medicare Signature on File

Medicare Signature on File

Dear Medicare patients – we are required to now use this updated format for our “signature on file” requirement..

I request the payment of authorized Medicare benefits be made either to me or on my behalf to R.P.C.M.G., Inc. dba Hilltop Medical Clinic / Hilltop Medical Clinic West, for any services furnished to me by that physician or supplier. I authorize any holder of medical information about me to release to CMS Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, any information needed to determine these benefits payable to related services.

Please be advised that you may be treated by one of our Mid-Level Practitioners (N.P or P.A.) at Hilltop Medical Clinic/ Hilltop Medical Clinic West. It is a requirement of Medicare that if you are seen by one of these Medical Providers as a patient with no M.D. or D.O. “on site” we bill your services accepting assignment for that particular office visit. In this situation, we would bill  Medicare and not require payment at the end of your visit, any payments made would be sent to Hilltop Medical Clinic/ Hilltop Medical Clinic West by Medicare.

You may receive a statement for any balance unpaid by Medicare, such as copay or deductible amounts. Our usual office policy of Non-Assignment and Payment in full would be followed if you are seen by our M.D., D.O. or Mid-Level practitioner when a physician is “on-site”.

I understand my signature requests that payment be made and authorize release of medical information necessary to pay claim. If other health insurance coverage is indicated in Item 9 of the HCFA-1500 claim form or electronically submitted claims, my signature authorizes releasing of the information to the insurer or agency shown. Per billing law requirements, my claim will be submitted by this office to Medicare for processing. I understand this office is primarily on a non-assignment basis with Medicare. Therefore, Medicare will respond directly to me.
Once you have signed this agreement, you agree to all the terms and conditions contained herein and the agreement will be in full force and effect.
