Medicare Private Contract Form

Are you on Medicare?  That's ok, we can still take care of you.

Dr Highley as "opted-out" of Medicare. In order for him to provide you service, we ask that you sign a private contract.

Section 4507 of the 1997 Balanced Budget Act allows a physician to enter a private contract with a Medicare beneficiary.   We, Preferred Family Medicine, will retain the contract for the duration of his opt-out period (renews every 2 years). We will supply Medicare with a copy of this contract upon request. The private contract remains in effect for two years.
