How can I attach a PDF?
I did as requested, please let me know if you have received the two docs.
There is no termination clause.
There is only one clause that states:
Should a transfer to another orthodontist become necessary, Robison Orthodontics will aid in selecting the new orthodontist (did not happen). All records and other info pertinent to the case will be forwarded to the new orhtho upon receiving his/her written request for such info. The fee for duplication and transferring records is $45. (Records were and will never be requested by me or the new ortho) This fee and the remaining financial obligation which is determined by patient treatment status/progress will be deemed due and payable at the termination request. New financial arrangements with another ortho are entirely the patients' responsibility.
They reimbursed me as follows. Everything paid into the plan minus $780 for appliance, $450 records, $45 records transfer. I do not contest the $780, but that price was initially quoted as all inclusive, if I would have chosen to not start paying ahead in the comprehensive plan.
