Patient Acknowledgement of Receipt Notice of Privacy Practices

It is our desire to communicate to you that we are taking the Federal (HIPPA- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) laws written to protect the confidentiality of your health information seriously. We do not ever want you to delay treatment because you are afraid your personal health history might be unnecessarily made available to others The most significant variable that has motivated the Federal government to legally enforce the importance of the privacy of health information is the rapid evolution of computer technology and its use in healthcare. The government has appropriately sought to standardize and protect the privacy of the electronic exchange of your health information. This has challenged us to review not only how your health information is used within our computers but also with the internet, phone, faxes, copy machines, and charts. We believe this has been an important exercise for us because it has disciplined us to put in writing the policies and procedures we use to ensure the protection of your health information

  • Insurance

    We are happy to bill both primary and secondary insurances as a courtesy for our patients. It must be understood that each patient is ultimately responsible for the cost of services rendered regardless of insurance coverage. All insurance policies are a contract between the patient and the insurance company and we cannot be held responsible for payment decisions made by any insurance company. We will do our best to estimate accurate insurance coverage and patient portion due; however, if the insurance company does not pay the full amount anticipated, the patient is responsible for the difference. Oral Cancer Screening is $50 and is recommended once a year and services will be billed if applicable

    Dr. Hanna Mansoor places resin-composite (tooth-colored) fillings when necessary. It must be understood that some insurance companies only pay for amalgam (silver) fillings and the difference is the patients responsibility.

We accept Cash, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and CareCredit. Payment would be expected immediately upon receiving the statement. After 30 days of non-payment, a late fee of $25 will be added to the patient's account. After 60 days, a finance charge of 3%, not to exceed 18% on an annual basis, will be added to your account and it will be turned over to our collections department.
