Insurance Assignment: I certify that I, and/or my dependents, have insurance coverage with the insurance company above and I assign directly to The Wallace Group Dentistry for Today, Inc. all insurance benefits, if any, otherwise payable to me for services rendered.
Financial and Personal Health Information: I understand that I am financially responsible for all charges incurred during treatment. I further understand that any insurance contract is between my insurance carrier and me and The Wallace Group Dentistry for Today, Inc. is not part of that contract.

Service Charges: I understand that a Service Charge will be imposed on each item of my account which has not been paid within thirty (30) days of the time the item was added to the account.

Further, I understand that the Service Charge on my account is computed by applying the periodic rate (1.5%) to the overdue balance of my account.

If the account is referred to a collection agency or a claim filed in court, I agree to pay all of the collection costs which are incurred.
