General Consent Massachusetts regulations mandate that we inform you of everything we do in the office and obtain your consent for any treatment rendered including a diagnostic exam. This regulation is aligned with our philosophy that an informed patient can make informed choices for their own oral health. In order to conform with the new regulations we will be asking you to sign many forms stating that we have discussed conditions of your teeth and surrounding structures, as well as options for restoring the teeth and surrounding structures. In order for us to treat you appropriately we will need to conduct an examination of your teeth and oral structures. This examination may include, a head and neck exam, intra and extra oral examination, an examination of the teeth, an oral cancer screening, a review of your past medical history, your current medical conditions including all medications you may be taking, photographs of your teeth and smile, x-rays (so that a proper diagnosis can be achieved), evaluation of your bite and the TM Joint, and impressions of your teeth. I authorize and consent to an examination by all doctors and hygienists at Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry. This examination may include any or all of the previously mentioned parts of an examination. I consent to the necessity of x-rays during this examination. I understand that the benefits of dental x-rays to properly diagnose my condition outweigh any risk posed by the additive effects of radiation exposure. It has been explained to me that dental x-ray exposure in this office is minimized by the use of digital technologies and that my overall health is the main concern of the doctors treating me. I certify that I have read and understand the above information to the best of my knowledge. My questions have been sufficiently and accurately answered and I will not hold Dr. Spitz or any member of his staff responsible for any errors or omissions that I may have made in the completion of this form.

Spitz, DMD and I hereby grant Dr. Spitz permission to reproduce, publish, print, use, and distribute copies of such photographs/x-rays either in an official medical publication or to promote this office, so long as my identity is not made public. These photographs/x-rays may be in the form of prints, slides, or film for use in connection with articles, lectures, or television broadcasts dealing with jaw or dental disorders. I specifically waive any claim for invasion of my personal privacy, which might accrue to me on account of the use of such pictures without my express consent in each instance. I authorize this office to release any information including the diagnosis and the records of any treatment or examination rendered to me or to my dependent(s) during the period of treatment to third party payers and/or health practitioners. I understand and acknowledge that I am financially responsible for the services provided for me or my dependents, regardless of insurance coverage. I hereby give my consent to all doctors and hygienists of Smileboston to examine diagnose and treat me and/or my dependent(s).

HIPAA - NOTICE OF GROUP INSURANCE COMMISSION PRIVACY PRACTICES Effective September 3, 2013 THIS NOTICE DESCRIBES HOW MEDICAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED AND DISCLOSED, AND HOW YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION. PLEASE REVIEW IT CAREFULLY. By law, the GIC must protect the privacy of your personal health information. The GIC retains this type of information because you receive health benefits from the Group Insurance Commission. Under federal law, your health information (known as “protected health information” or “PHI”) includes what health plan you are enrolled in and the type of health plan coverage you have. This notice explains your rights and our legal duties and privacy practices. The GIC will abide by the terms of this notice. Should our information practices materially change, the GIC reserves the right to change the terms of this notice, and must abide by the terms of the notice currently in effect. Any new notice provisions will affect all protected health information we already maintain, as well as protected health information that we may receive in the future. We will mail revised notices to the address you have supplied, and will post the updated notice on our website at www.mass.gov/gic. Required and Permitted Uses and Disclosures We use and disclose protected health information (“PHI”) in a number of ways to carry out our responsibilities. The following describes the types of uses and disclosures of PHI that federal law requires or permits the GIC to make without your authorization: Payment Activities: The GIC may use and share PHI for plan payment activities, such as paying administrative fees for health care, paying health care claims, and determining eligibility for health benefits. Health Care Operations: The GIC may use and share PHI to operate its programs that include evaluating the quality of health care services you receive, arranging for legal and auditing services (including fraud and abuse detection); and performing analyses to reduce health care costs and improve plan performance.

Required Disclosures: The GIC must use and share your PHI when requested by you or someone who has the legal right to make such a request on your behalf (your Personal representative), when requested by the United States Department of Health and Human Services to make sure your privacy is being protected, and when otherwise required by law. Organizations That Assist Us: In connection with payment and health care operations, we may share your PHI with our third party “Business Associates” that perform activities on our behalf, for example, our Indemnity Plan administrator. When these services are contracted, we may disclose your health information to our business associates so that they can perform the job we have asked of them. These business associates will be contractually bound to safeguard the privacy of your PHI and also have direct responsibility to protect your PHI imposed by federal law. Except as described above, the GIC will not use or disclose your PHI without your written authorization. You may give us written authorization to use or disclose your PHI to anyone for any purpose. You may revoke your authorization so long as you do so in writing; however, the GIC will not be able to get back your health information we have already used or shared based on your permission. Your rights You have the right to: Ask to see and get a copy of your PHI that the GIC maintains. You must ask for this in writing. Under certain circumstances, we may deny your request. If the GIC did not create the information you seek, we will refer you to the source (e.g., your health plan administrator). The GIC may charge you to cover certain costs, such as copying and postage. Ask the GIC to amend your PHI if you believe that it is wrong or incomplete and the GIC agrees. You must ask for this by in writing, along with a reason for your request.
