OEC Notice of Patient's Right of Choice

Notice of Patient’s Right of Choice

 

As a patient, you have the right to choose your treatment at a facility of your choice.

When referred to a specific facility for a diagnostic test or health care treatment/service, you have the choice to receive that diagnostic test or health care treatment/service at a facility other than the one recommended by your health practitioner.

If you choose to have the diagnostic test, health care treatment/service performed at a facility other than the one recommended by your health practitioner, you are responsible for determining the extent of coverage or the limitation on coverage for the diagnostic test, health care treatment/ service at your chosen facility.

Your health practitioner will not deny, limit, or withdraw a referral solely because you chose to have the diagnostic test or health care treatment/service performed at a facility other than the one recommended by your health practitioner.

Please note, if you chose to receive care at the Oregon Endoscopy Center, LLC, the physicians at Eugene Gastroenterology Consultants, P.C., have a financial interest in the Oregon Endoscopy Center, LLC.

If you have any further questions or concerns regarding your right to choose where you receive treatment, please talk to your health practitioner at your appointment.
