    TOS payments should be encouraged

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Encouraging TOS (Terms of Service) payments is beneficial because it ensures that users comply with the terms and conditions set by a company or platform. By making these payments, users acknowledge and agree to abide by the rules, which helps maintain a fair and secure environment for all users. TOS payments also provide a source of revenue for the company, enabling them to continue offering their services and improving the platform for users.

    C. Allowable amount
    Explanation
    The term "allowable amount" refers to the total sum that an insurance company is willing to pay for a specific medical procedure. This amount is predetermined and agreed upon between the insurance company and the healthcare provider. It represents the maximum reimbursement that the insurance company will cover, and any additional costs beyond this amount would typically be the responsibility of the patient.

    Only one collection letter should be sent to a patient prior to sending them to a collection agency service

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Multiple collection letters should be sent to a patient prior to sending them to a collection agency service. This is because sending multiple letters gives the patient ample opportunity to settle their outstanding debts before resorting to involving a collection agency. It also ensures that the patient is aware of their financial obligations and provides them with a fair chance to address the issue before further actions are taken.

    B. False
    Explanation
    Continuing to see patients who have filed bankruptcy is not prohibited or unethical. Bankruptcy is a legal process that allows individuals or businesses to reorganize or eliminate their debts. It does not affect a patient's ability to receive medical care or the healthcare provider's ability to treat them. Therefore, it is not necessary to stop seeing patients who have filed bankruptcy.

    You can bill a minor if you don't have the parent's information

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False

    The statement is false because in most cases, you cannot bill a minor without the parent's information. Minors are typically not legally responsible for their own medical bills, and healthcare providers require the parent's information to ensure proper billing and payment. Without the parent's information, it would be difficult to collect payment or communicate with the responsible party for the minor's healthcare expenses.

They are the ones who purchase the insurance and are protected against potential financial losses or damages. The insurance company, on the other hand, is the provider of the insurance coverage and agrees to compensate the insured in case of covered events or risks. The insured pays premiums to the insurance company in exchange for this coverage.
