  • 1. I, the undersigned, hereafter referred to as “the patient,” do hereby assign all of my rights and interests to Landa Spine Center, hereafter referred to as “the medical provider” to pursue and obtain payment from the above-mentioned insurance carrier. This assignment shall include but is not limited to, all rights available to me pursuant to the Personal Injury Protection Statutes of the State of New Jersey.

    2. I assign, to the medical provider, all my rights and benefits under the insurance contract for payment for services rendered to me. However, upon consent of both parties, same shall be revocable.

    3. I, the patient, do hereby understand and acknowledge that if I willfully refuse to comply with reasonable requests of the insurance carrier, payment of my medical bills may be denied and I will be held responsible for same.

    4. I, the patient, authorize my bodily injury attorney to pay directly to the medical provider any monies due on my account, or, have same deducted from any settlement made on my behalf.

    5. I, the patient, do hereby direct my health insurance carrier and/or other insurance carrier to issue payment on my behalf directly to the medical provider. The check should be made payable to the medical provider. Further, in the event that the health carrier and/or other insurance carrier fails to forward the check to the medical provider, I will endorse and sign the check to the medical provider within (5) days of receipt of same.

    6. I, the patient, do hereby acknowledge that I will not file suit and/or arbitration for the payment of the above provider’s medical bills unless I am requested to do so by the medical provider. I understand that the above referenced medical provider has an attorney and will collect payment on my behalf from the insurance provider.

    7. To prevent the insurance carrier and/or the vendor designated by the insurance carrier from refusing to accept my Assignment or submitting a challenge to my Assignment as being invalid, I execute this Special Power of Attorney and appoint and authorize the medical provider and counsel on behalf of the medical provider to file suit and/or arbitration directly against the insurance carrier in my name and/or allow the medical provider to amend the lawsuit and/or arbitration to include my name. I understand and acknowledge that the attorney chosen by the medical provider is to represent me individually on any claim for outstanding treatment with the medical provider in any appropriate forum. This Assignment serves as a limited retainer agreement between me and the attorney chosen by the medical provider for the sole purpose of representing me on a claim for outstanding treatment. I have been advised that if an arbitration and/or lawsuit is filed in my name individually, failure to include an outstanding medical provider’s bills whom I have not executed an Assignment of Benefits with could make me liable for payment to that provider. In consideration, this medical provider has agreed to accept as payment in full, the amount awarded and/or settled and will not seek additional payment from other insurance carriers.

  • CONSENT TO REPRESENTATION IN APPEALS OF UTILIZATION MANAGEMENT DETERMINATIONS AND AUTHORIZATION FOR RELEASE OF MEDICAL RECORDS IN UM APPEALS AND INDEPENDENT ARBITRATION OF CLAIMS

    APPEALS OF UTILIZATION MANAGEMENT DETERMINATIONS

    You have the right to ask your insurer, HMO or other company providing your health benefits (carrier) to change its utilization management (UM) decision if the carrier determines that a service or treatment covered under your health benefits plan is or was not medically necessary.* This is called a UM appeal. You also have the right to allow a doctor, hospital or other health care provider to make a UM appeal for you. There are three appeal stages if you are covered under a health benefits plan issued in New Jersey. Stage 1: the carrier reviews your case using a different health care professional from the one who first reviewed your case. Stage 2: the carrier reviews your case using a panel that includes medical professionals trained in cases like yours. Stage 3: your case will be reviewed through the Independent Health Care Appeals Program of the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI) using an Independent Utilization Review Organization (IURO) that contracts with medical professionals whose practices include cases like yours. The health care provider is required to attempt to send you a letter telling you it intends to file an appeal before filing at each stage. At Stage 3, the health care provider will share your personal and medical information with DOBI, the IURO, and the IURO’s contracted medical professionals. Everyone is required by law to keep your information confidential. DOBI must report data about IURO decisions, but no personal information is ever included in these reports.

    You have the right to cancel (revoke) your consent at any time. Your financial obligation, IF ANY, does not change because you choose to give consent to representation, or later revoke your consent. Your consent to representation and release of information for appeal of a UM determination will end 24 months after the date you sign the consent.

    INDEPENDENT ARBITRATION OF CLAIMS

    Your health care provider has the right to take certain claims to an independent claims arbitration process through the DOBI. To arbitrate the claim(s), the health care provider may share some of your personal and medical information with the DOBI, the arbitration organization, and the arbitration professional(s). Everyone is required to keep your information confidential. The DOBI reports data about the arbitration outcomes, but no personal information will be in the reports. Your consent to the release of information for the arbitration process will end 24 months after the date you sign the consent.
