1. Parsley Medical Clinical Membership Options and Membership Fees.
The Clinical Membership offers different Clinical Membership Options, each with a different scope of services and fees. You must select your desired Clinical Membership Option from the available list on Parsley Medical’s website at www.parsleyhealth.com/join . The terms of your selected Clinical Membership Option can be found on Parsley Medical’s website at https://www.parsleyhealth.com/join. Clinical Membership Options may change from time to time, and you will receive at least thirty (30) days’ advance notice of such changes. However, you are entitled to the full scope of your Clinical Membership Option as it existed as of the effective date of your current Membership Term for the duration of such Membership Term. For any subsequent Renewal Term, you may accept the revised Clinical Membership Options (which may include changes in the Clinical Membership Fee) or reject such changes and terminate your Membership.
You may pay your Clinical Membership Fee in a single sum or make periodic payments per a monthly Clinical Membership Fee Payment Schedule. The initial payment must be made before your Clinical Membership commences. Once paid, your Clinical Membership Fee is non-refundable, as set forth in the Parsley Medical Refund Policy, available at https://help.parsleyhealth.com (“How do I cancel my membership?”).
2. No Emergency Care; Certain Services and Items Excluded.
If you have an emergency, you must dial 911. Parsley Medical does not treat emergencies. Parsley Medical is a holistic medical practice that provides a range of professional services including the services covered in your chosen Membership option; but it is not intended as a primary care physician/practitioner practice and, while its practitioners can order prescriptions, ancillary services such as diagnostic tests/x-rays, and laboratory services, it does not provide medications or those services itself. Parsley Medical is not intended to take the place of your primary care physician.
3. No Insurance Accepted; Self-Payment Only.
The Clinical Membership is a direct health care service; it is not health insurance. Although Parsley Medical participates in a limited number of commercial health insurance plans, Clinical Memberships are not available to patients who have health insurance coverage through those plans. Clinical Memberships are only available to patients who are not part of a commercial health insurance plan in which Parsley Medical participates. Also, Parsley Medical does not participate in federal health care programs such as Medicare or Medicaid. Parsley Medical providers may recommend you receive services not offered by Parsley Medical (e.g., specialty services, diagnostic tests), but in no event will Parsley Medical be responsible for any medical bills that result from services not offered by Parsley Medical, even if those services were recommended by Parsley Medical.
You are solely responsible for payment of all fees for Parsley Medical’s services. If you do have health insurance, your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. It is your responsibility to know your benefits, and how they will apply to your benefit payments. Parsley Medical takes no responsibility to understand or be bound by the terms and conditions of such insurance. There is no guarantee your insurance company will make any payment to you to reimburse some or all of the cost of the services you have purchased through your Clinical Membership.
You are also responsible to notify Parsley Medical if you obtain or change your health insurance coverage, and Parsley Medical will notify you if it contracts with (i.e., participates in) the health insurance plan to which you subscribe. In the event that Parsley Medical contracts with a health insurance plan with which you have health insurance coverage, this Agreement will have to be amended or terminated.
4. Subscription Billing.
In order to participate in the Clinical Membership, your Clinical Membership Fee payments will be charged to your credit card on a recurring basis. You hereby agree to allow Parsley Medical to securely store your credit / debit card information (the “Payment Method”). You authorize the Payment Method to be used automatically for your payment responsibilities to Parsley Medical. If a credit card account is being used for a transaction, Parsley Medical may obtain preapproval for an amount up to the amount of the payment. If you want to designate a different payment method or if there is a change in your Payment Method information, you can change the information with Parsley Medical by messaging firstname.lastname@example.org. This may temporarily delay your ability to make online payments while Parsley Medical verifies the new payment information. You represent and warrant that: (1) any credit / debit card information you supply is true, correct and complete, (2) charges you incur will be honored by your credit/debit card company, (3) you will pay the charges incurred in the amounts posted, including any applicable taxes, and (4) you are the person in whose name the credit / debit card was issued and are authorized to make a purchase or other transaction with the relevant credit / debit card and information. You agree and authorize the Payment Method to be billed automatically in accordance with the Clinical Membership Fee Payment Schedule in an amount equal to the Clinical Membership Fee in effect for your Membership Term. Your Membership Fee Payment Schedule is reflected in, or can be selected as part of, the Membership option you choose when you become a Member or modify your Membership.
If Parsley Medical is unable to secure funds from your debit / credit card(s) for any reason, including, but not limited to, insufficient funds in the debit / credit card or insufficient or inaccurate information provided by you when submitting electronic payment, Parsley Medical may undertake further collection action, including application of fees to the extent permitted by law and/or, where deemed appropriate, suspension of services.
You have the right to revoke this authorization by contacting Parsley Medical at email@example.com at least fifteen (15) days prior to the scheduled payment date. You understand that your Clinical Membership may be cancelled or as deemed appropriate, suspended if you revoke this authorization, and you remain responsible for all charges you incur or otherwise owe to Parsley Medical. This authorization will remain in full force and effect until revoked by you or Parsley Medical.
