NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES: HIPAA
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability ACT (HIPAA; “Act”) of 1996, revised in 2013, requires us as your health care provider to maintain the privacy of your protected heath information, to provide you with notice of our legal duties and privacy practices with respect to protected health information, and to notify affected individuals following a breach of unsecured protected health information. We are required to maintain these records of your health care and to maintain confidentiality of these records.
The Act also allow us to use your information for treatment, payment, and certain health operations unless otherwise prohibited by law and without your authorization.
- Treatment: We may disclose your protected health information to you and to our staff or to other health care providers in order to get you the care you need. This includes information that may go to the pharmacy to get your prescription filled, to a diagnostic center to assist with your diagnosis, or to the hospital should you need to be admitted. If necessary to ensure that you get this care, we may also discuss the minimum necessary with friends or family members involved in your care unless you request otherwise.
- Payment: We may send information to you or to your health plan in order to receive payment for the service or item we delivered. We may discuss the minimum necessary with friends or family members involved in your payment unless you request otherwise.
- Health operations: We are allowed to use or disclose your protected health information to train new health care workers, to evaluate the health care delivered, to improve our business development and other internal needs.
- We are required to disclose the information as required by law, such as public health regulations, health care oversight activities, certain law suits and law enforcement.
Certain ways that your protected health information could be used disclosed require an authorization from you: disclosure of psychotherapy notes, use or disclosure of your information for marketing, disclosure use that constitutes a sale of protected health information, and any uses or disclosure not described in the NPP. We cannot disclose your protected health information to your employer or to your school without your authorization unless required by law. You will receive a copy of your organization and may revoke the authorization in writing. We will honor that revocation beginning the date we receive the written signed revocation.
You have several rights concerning your protected health information. When you wish to use one of these rights, please inform our office so that we may give you the correct form for documenting your request.
- You have the right to access your records, add a statement to your records, and/or to receive a copy of your records, with the exception of psychotherapy notes. Your request must be in writing, and we must verify your identity before allowing the requested access. We are required to allow the access or provide the copy within 30 days of your request. We may provide the copy to you or to your designee in an electronic format acceptable to you or as a hard copy. We may charge you our cost for making and providing the copy. If your request is denied, you may request a review of this denial by a licensed health care provider.
- If you are 12 years old or older, you have the right to see and obtain a copy of your medical and
- mental health records. You can request your mental health records, but if a health care provider determines that seeing these records would be harmful to you, management can refuse your request.
- You have the right to request restrictions on how your protected health information is used for treatment, payment, and health operations. For example, you may request that a certain friend or family member not have access to this information. We are not required to agree to this request, but if we agree to your request, we are obligated to fulfill the request, except in an emergency where this restriction might interfere with your care. We may terminate these restrictions if necessary to fulfill treatment and payment.
- We are required to grant your request for restriction if the requested restriction applies only to information that would be submitted to a health plan for payment for a health care service or item for which you have paid in full out-of-pocket, and if the restriction is not otherwise forbidden by law. For example, we are required to submit information to federal health plans and managed care organizations even if you request a restriction. We must have your restriction documented prior to initiating the service. Some exceptions may apply, so ask for a form to request the restriction and to get additional information. We are not required to inform other covered entities of this request, but we are not allowed to use or disclose information that has been restricted to business associates that may disclose the information to the health plan.
- You have the right to request confidential communications. For example, you may prefer that we call your cell phone number rather than your home phone. These requests must be in writing, may be revoked in writing, and must give us an effective means of communication for us to comply. If the alternate means of communications incurs additional cost, that cost will be passed on to you.
- Your medical records are legal documents that provide crucial information regarding you care. You have the right to request an amendment to your medical records, but you must make this request in writing and understand that we are not required to grant this request.
- You have the right to an accounting of disclosures. This will tell you how we have used or disclosed your protected health information. We are required to inform you of a breach that may have affected your protected health information.
- You have the right to receive a copy of this notice, either electronic or paper or both.
- You have the right to opt out of fund raising communications.
You have the right to file a complaint to us or with the Office of Civil Rights. We will not discriminate or retaliate in any way for this action. To file a complaint, please contact the applicable party.
