By agreeing to the terms of service, you understand and acknowledge that you
have requested testing for yourself offered by MicroGenDX, and when appropriate,
ordered by your physician from KHSS to enable the testing process.
As part of the testing process, KHSS will ensure all appropriate test requests are
submitted to MicroGenDX for testing, receive and review test results, and ensure
notification of positive and/or indeterminate/invalid test results.
I understand and acknowledge that by agreeing to utilize these testing services, by
referral to a qualified physician, that understanding and acceptance of these terms
of services and informed consent are required. You agree and acknowledge the following:
- I understand that I will be asked by KHSS, for my demographic information and the
nature of my requests for testing services. I will be truthful in my responses,
and aliases are not accepted.
- I understand that KHSS serves as a resource for patients desiring certain medical
screening and/or testing for certain diseases by referral to a qualified physician.
- I understand that KHSS does not participate in the practice of medicine and does
not provide any diagnosis and/or treatment.
- I understand that KHSS has made arrangements for my referral to a qualified
physician who is licensed and has prescriptive authority in the state in which
I will be tested, in accordance with all appropriate State laws and regulations.
- I am 18 years of age or older and I am the one to be tested.
- I understand that the physician to whom I am referred, may, in his/her judgment, refuse to accept my referral.
- I understand that certain signs and symptoms that I might have such as, temperature over 100.4 degrees (F),
abdominal pains, nausea and/or vomiting, will require a visit to my private physician, urgent care, or to an
emergency room for proper evaluation and my referral may be refused.
- I understand that any and all of my personal medical history and personal data, including testing information
and results, collected will be treated confidentially as required by HIPAA. I understand that KHSS and the
physician will protect my privacy and security of all of my personal health information (PHI) as defined
by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA") and the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
- I understand that my relationship that I have with the physician whom I am referred will only be related to
the screening test or testing for the condition of which I am concerned, but in no way, either written or implied,
now or in the future will extend beyond the scope of the testing in consideration. No expectations have been
made and I have no expectations of my own for receiving any medical care or continued follow up from
this physician other than as related to this testing.
- I understand that every effort will be made to have my testing results returned to me within 2 to 3 business
days after specimen is received by MicroGenDX. I understand that, at times, the results might be delayed
beyond this time frame and the lab may require a repeat sample.
- I understand that it is rare, but with all lab testing there are times that there are false positive tests and
false negative tests. This means that there are times that a person could have the condition and the test be
negative (false negative) or the person could be free of the condition and the test is positive (false positive).
In certain instances, an inconclusive test results are possible as well, and a new sample may need to be
provided. MicroGenDX has protocols and procedures in place to mitigate and prevent these situations to
the best of their ability during the testing process. Following the sampling instructions provided by MicroGenDX
will minimize the risk of contamination (false positive) or an inconclusive (false negative). I also understand that
a true negative is possible and may be an indication of a lack of infection. I also understand that the MicroGenDX
test is only one part of diagnosing an infection and that other factors (such as symptoms, biomarker testing, etc.)
may need to be evaluated by a healthcare provider before the presence or absence of a condition or infection
can be determined, and that MicroGenDX and KHSS is not responsible for making this conclusion.
- I further understand that by accepting referral to my assigned physician and having the recommended testing,
I voluntarily assume any risks associated with the screening process itself. In addition, I hereby release and hold
harmless, KHSS, MicroGenDX, my assigned physician, the laboratory performing the testing, and any other persons
or entities associated in any way with this screening process from any and all claims, rights and causes of action
arising from any injury or other damages or the consequences thereof, resulting from or in any way connected
with the screening or otherwise directly or indirectly arising from the transaction conducted through the services
provided and/or though the relationship with my assigned physician.
- I understand that the physician to whom which I am referred or their designate, will provide to me as much
information and counseling, to the best of their ability, about any findings on my testing, and that it may be
necessary for me to seek additional care from my private physician or to seek further psychological counseling
- I understand that results of this testing and all informational material should be for informational purposes
and not a substitute for my usual medical care. I understand the importance of sharing all laboratory testing
results with my primary care physician, or my physician of record. I understand that should the results have
any abnormal values it will be important to follow up with my primary care physician or physician of record to
review and evaluate these results in the context of a full and complete evaluation. If you do not have a personal
physician, or physician of record, you can utilize resources such as the internet, your local hospital system, or
minor emergency center as resources to locate one.
- I am choosing to participate in this testing process voluntarily and understand that a visit to my personal
physician to discuss findings and/or treatment is advised.
- I understand I am responsible for checking my email for results notifications, as well as logging into the
MicroGenDX patient portal to view test results when available. If MicroGenDX patient portal access has not
been registered, I understand that I must register for free access to the patient portal and agree to any
MicroGenDX terms of services and complete identify verification.
I understand that the services provided by KHSS and KHSS Physicians are delivered in a remote fashion that may
involve health care providers not in the same physical location that I am, that utilize electronic means of
communication and transmissions related to my personal health. I acknowledge and understand the following:
- KHSS Physician will determine if testing services are appropriate for me.
- I understand and authorize both MicroGenDX and KHSS to utilize all contact information provided by
me at the time of the test request, including phone, email and physical addresses, to contact me
regarding testing or any services provided. It is my responsibility to notify all parties of any changes to
my phone number, email or physical address, as well as any other pertinent information.
