DSD is not a licensed insurer, health maintenance organization, or other underwriter of health care services. DSD does not reimburse or otherwise pay any portion of any Vendors fees. DSD is not licensed to provide medical services to Members. Members receive discounts and benefit services from certain Vendors, which have contracted with DSD. It is the Member’s responsibility to verify that the Vendor is a participant in the program. The Member is obligated to pay for all health care services at the time of the Member’s appointment or at point of service. Savings and benefit services are based upon the Vendors usual fees or Member fees. Actual savings will vary depending upon location and specific products or services purchased. Member must verify products or services with each individual Vendor. The discounts contained or referenced herein may not be used in conjunction with any other discount or savings plan, insurance plan, or finance program.

Any services rendered by a non-participating Vendor will not be discounted. Certain Vendors may, from time-to-time, offer products or services to the general public at prices lower than the discounted prices available through this program and in such event, Members will be charged the lowest price. Vendors are subject to change without notice. DSD has the right at any time to eliminate a Vendor from the respective network in which he/she is associated and may substitute Vendor networks at DSD’s sole discretion. DSD does not guarantee the continued participation of any Vendor. If a Vendor leaves the plan, Member may not receive a discount. Vendors contracted by DSD are solely responsible for the products and/or professional advice and treatments rendered to Members and DSD disclaims any and all liability (unless DSD is the Vendor) with respect to such matters.
