STATE AND FEDERAL LAWS REQUIRE THAT PRIVACY OF CERTAIN HEALTH CARE INFORMATION ABOUT CLIENTS AND PATIENTS IS MAINTAINED. THE LAW ALSO REQUIRES THAT YOU ARE NOTIFIED OF THESE STANDARDS.
As part of day-to-day activities, it may be required to use and disclose your protected health care information for purposes without obtaining your written approval:
- It may be necessary to contact you based upon your protected health care information about treatments, benefits and available services
- It may be necessary to provide information to government officials and/or law enforcement who oversee health care or threats to public safety
No other uses and disclosures of your protected health care information will occur without your written authorization. If you sign such an authorization, you have the right to cancel it at any time.
A NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES WILL BE PROVIDED PRIOR TO YOUR INITIAL SESSION WITH YOUR ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF RECEIPT.
