  • By typing my name in the above input box, I certify that I am at least 18 years of age, and I consent to the rendering of such evaluation and treatment by: ABCNNJ, LLC located at the above address or virtually via a HIPPA compliant platform (ZOOM or Doxy.me)
    1. I understand the office of Advanced Behavioral Counseling, LLC offers both in person and telehealth sessions secondary to the health crisis surrounding COVID 19.
    2. I am aware that clinical practice is not an exact science, and I acknowledge that no representations, guarantees or warranties have been made to me as to the result of any evaluation or treatment procedure that I may receive.
    3. I understand that ABC, LLC staff consist of licensed psychiatric nurse practitioners and therapists, who work as a treatment team. For comprehensive care, they may at times discuss confidential information with each other and their collaborating psychiatrist, Dr. Sandra Squires, MD.
    4. I understand that there may be potential risks to this technology, including interruptions, unauthorized access, and technical difficulties. I understand that ABC or I may discontinue the telehealth session if we determine that the videoconferencing connections are not adequate for the situation.
    5. I understand that my healthcare information may be shared with other third parties for scheduling and billing purposes, as is the case for in-person sessions.
    6. I understand and agree that to preserve confidentiality, I will be in a private room with a closed door without any other individuals present in person or online, unless agreed upon prior to beginning the session. Only my mental health clinician and I will be participating in the session unless we have agreed to have other support persons present. I also understand that the clinician will need to know my location (in the event of an emergency).
    7. I understand that if I am using a third-party payor such as health insurance, the plan will be billed and I will be responsible for the contracted rate towards the deductible, co-insurance, and/or co-pay. If I am not able to physically report to the office to present payment, I authorize ABC to charge the credit card on file, and that I can request an invoice for such payment. If I am not utilizing a third-party payor, I agree to pay the fee agreed upon with my clinician.
