THIS NOTICE IS TO INFORM YOU HOW YOUR MEDICAL INFORMATION MAY BE USED, DISCLOSED, AND HOW TO OBTAIN ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION.
(PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY)
The Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA") is a federal program that requires that all medical records and other individually identifiable health information used or disclosed by us in any form, whether electronically, on paper, or orally, are kept properly confidential. This Act gives you, the patient, significant new rights to understand and control how your health information is used. "HIPAA" provides penalties for covered entities that misuse personal health information.
As required by "HIPAA," we have prepared this explanation of how we are required to maintain the privacy of your health information and how we may use and disclose your health information.
We may use and disclose your medical records only for each of the following purposes: treatment, payment, and healthcare operations.
Treatment means providing, coordinating, or managing healthcare and related services by one or more providers. An example of this would include a physical examination.
Payment means obtaining service reimbursement, confirming coverage, billing or collection activities, and utilization review. An example would be sending a bill for your visit to your insurance company for payment.
Healthcare operations include the business aspects of running our practice, such as conducting quality assessment and improvement activities, auditing functions, cost-management analysis, and customer service. An example would be an internal quality assessment review.
We may also create and distribute de-identified health information by removing all references to individually identifiable information.
We may contact you to provide appointment reminders or information about treatment alternatives or other health-related benefits and services that interest you.
Any other uses and disclosures will be made only with your written authorization. You may revoke such authorization in writing, and we are required to honor and abide by that written request, except to the extent that we have already taken actions relying on your authorization.
You have the following rights concerning your protected health information, which you can exercise by presenting a written request to the Privacy Officer:
We are required by law to maintain the privacy of your protected health information and to provide you with notice of our legal duties and privacy practices concerning protected health information.
This notice is effective as of today's date, 2023. We must abide by the terms of the Notice of Privacy Practices currently in effect. We reserve the right to change the terms of our Notice of Privacy Practices and make the new notice provisions effective for all protected health information we maintain. We will post, and you may request a written copy of a revised Notice of Privacy Practices from this office.
You have recourse if you feel that your privacy protections have been violated. You have the right to file a written complaint with our office or the Department of Health & Human Services, Office of Civil Rights, about violations of this notice's provisions or our office's policies and procedures. We will not retaliate against you for filing a complaint.
