TH Consent

Nebraska Telehealth Patient Consent Form

A Telehealth service means that my visit with a practitioner at the distant site will happen by using special audiovisual equipment. This consent is valid for six months for follow-up Telehealth services with the health care provider.
I also understand that:
  • I can decline the Telehealth service at any time without affecting my right to future care or treatment, and any program benefits to which I would otherwise be entitled cannot be taken away.
  • I may have to travel to see a health care practitioner in-person if I decline the Telehealth service.
  • If I decline the Telehealth services, the other options/alternatives available for me, including in-person services, are as follows: seek alternative providers in your community.
  • The same confidentiality protections that apply to my other medical care also apply to the Telehealth service.
  • I will have access to all medical information resulting from the Telehealth service as provided by law.
  • The information from the Telehealth service (images that can be identified as mine or other medical information from the Telehealth service) cannot be released to researchers or anyone else without my additional written consent.
  • I will be informed of all people who will be present at all sites during my Telehealth service.
  • I may exclude anyone from any site during my Telehealth service.
  • I may see an appropriately trained staff person or employee in-person immediately after the Telehealth service if an urgent need arises OR I will be told ahead of time that this is not available.
  • I give permission for the Munroe-Meyer Institute to provide limited information to the coordinator at this site for billing purposes.
