Not use or further disclose PHI other than as permitted or required by this Section 9.6 or as required by law (as such term is defined by the Privacy Rule); ii.

Determinations regarding eligibility are made by ImPACT Applications in its sole and absolute discretion. Eligibility criteria may be subject to change from time to time with or without notice.
The CIC program is available to licensed healthcare professionals permitted under applicable law to administer neurocognitive testing in the following categories: M.D., D.O., Ph.D., Psy.D., Neuropsychologist, Physician Assistant, and Nurse Practitioner or its international equivalent (each a “CIC in Training”). A CIC in Training must be either a Customer employee or independent contractor.

- Once the CIC in training is deemed eligible for the CIC program:
- Customer will be invoiced for the annual CIC fee. This fee includes the 1st year CIC training courses which are intended to assist the CIC in passing the test. Video on-demand rules apply for course expirations. CIC courses may change at any time. The Customer will be immediately eligible for the CIC discount in Schedule A for the first 90 days. If the CIC candidate fails to pass the test within ninety (90) calendar days, then Customer will be invoiced for the difference between the current retail pricing and the CIC discount pricing for any invoices created within such ninety (90) calendar day period. At this point, Customer will automatically revert to then-current retail pricing and Customer shall be denied access to CIC program benefits until and unless another individual affiliated with Customer completes and maintains CIC status.
- The CIC in Training will receive a link to the exam via email once accepted into the CIC program. Detailed instructions to access the test are included in the email.
- The CIC in Training must pass the CIC test with a score of at least 80% to be eligible for participation in the program.
- Each CIC in Training has three attempts to pass the test. If the CIC in Training fails three times, the CIC in Training is required to wait 45 calendar days before being given three more attempts.
- If the CIC in Training does not pass the test within a year of the initial application, the CIC in Training will be required to pay the yearly fee again at the anniversary of the application date to continue training and testing.
- At least one (1) CIC in Training must pass the CIC test as set forth above within ninety (90) calendar days of the Effective Date for Customer to receive CIC discounted prices on testing.
- If the CIC in Training passes the CIC test:
- The CIC in Training is approved as a CIC and Customer is entitled to the CIC program benefits set forth in this Agreement.
- The CIC is sent an electronic certificate.
- The CIC is added to our provider directory at https://concussioncareproviders.com/.
- Customer has access to discounted pricing.
- All educational and marketing materials are available at https://concussioncareresources.com.
- Each year after initial approval, the CIC is required to take one (1) ImPACT Applications continuing education course to maintain CIC status. This course is taken in the form of a video on-demand course or live webinar. The annual course is included in the annual CIC fee. Courses included in the annual CIC fee are not transferrable to other healthcare providers or CICs in Training and may not be broadcasted or viewed with multiple people or in a group. CIC Courses included in the initial or renewal fee may change at any time.
- If the CIC fails to complete the required one (1) education course or pay the annual fee before the renewal date, Customer’s access to CIC benefits (including discounts) shall be automatically suspended with or without notice. The CIC listing shall be temporarily removed from the ImPACT Applications website and discounts shall be automatically suspended until Customer has a CIC associated with its account.
