You authorize Nebraska Family Chiropractic and Acupuncture to release to employer groups, government agencies (Medicare, Medicaid, Champus, State or Federal governments, etc.), insurance companies, or other third-party payers and their agents, and its collection representative and attorneys, the following “Patient Information”: medical history, diagnoses, and procedures performed, course of treatment, plan of care, prognosis, supplies and/or such other information that may be requested for the purpose of determining eligibility and availability of Patient’s benefits, obtaining authorization/payment for the Patient’s health care services or billing and collection of amounts due to Universal Wellness Source for services rendered. In the case of Patient Information released for purposes of payment of Patient Charges, this authorization shall be valid only for the period of time necessary to process payment claims. You agree to pay any Patient Charges that are denied or are ineligible for medical reimbursement benefits as a result of your refusal or revocation of consent to disclose Patient Information.

Finally, in the event that the Patient’s employer, or an insurance company representing such employer, requests Patient Information relating to healthcare services provided for worker’s compensation injuries, it is understood and agreed that Universal Wellness Source is required, under state law, to release copies of such information to such employer or insurance company without the authorization of Patient or Patient’s representative.
