Privacy and Confidentiality
Privacy and confidentiality are legally protected by law. Your information will not be released to other persons or entities without a consent for release. However, there are situations in which our office will be legally mandated to report information. We are bound by law to report information that suggests the possibility of child abuse, elder abuse, abuse of the infirmed, as well as when there appears to be an intention to harm yourself or others.
Additionally, if you are using insurance benefits, we will provide information to the insurance provider in order to submit claims.
For court ordered evaluations, confidentiality is waived by entering into Family Court litigation or if you are the plaintiff in a lawsuit. Your records may be subject to a subpoena request.
Use of Associates
Dr. Taylor employs and supervises associates who may be involved in the evaluation and treatment process. Records are kept confidential and are only handled by individuals involved in the evaluation.
Payment is due at the time of service. If insurance benefits are being used for services, the patient is responsible for any remaining balances. Any deductibles and co-pays are due at the time of service.
Appointments canceled without a 24-hour notice will be subject to $170 fee. If you miss an appointment, insurance will not cover the visit and we will be unable to file for payment; therefore, the patient will be responsible for the entire fee.
