Can I charge my patients a fee for "missed appointments"?

Under DMHC's definition for "Missed Appointment Fees," which is defined as, "fees charged by a Provider against a WHA member who fails to keep an appointment with the Provider for a service that would have been covered by WHA, and fails to inform the Provider with advance notice as required and disclosed by the Provider," a Provider may charge a "reasonable" missed appointment fee as long as the Provider has established a written policy for such fees and has disclosed its policy to each member in advance.
