To our Patients:
To protect your personal health information we use a HIPAA consent form. We understand that you have certain rights to privacy regarding your protected health information. These rights are given to you under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability act of 1996 (HIPAA). We understand that by signing a consent you authorize us to use and disclose your protected health information to carry out:
-Treatment (including direct or indirect treatment by the other healthcare providers involved in your treatment)
- Obtaining payment from third party payers (e. g. your insurance company)
-The day-to-day healthcare operations of the physicians practice
You may revoke your consent in writing at any time. However, any use or disclosure that occurred prior to the date the consent was revoked is not affected.
We ask all of our patients to complete a patient authorization form while being under your physician’s care. This form specifies those other persons that you authorize to receive limited personal health information such as disclosure of any appointments and those who are released to pick up existing prescriptions.
We do reserve the right to change the terms of the HIPAA consent form and patient authorization form and you may contact us any time to obtain the most current copy of the notices. We will however, never change your authorization without your approval.
For any questions about the credit monitoring service option, please contact our Call Center at 888-849-0976
