You have the right to request that we follow special restrictions when using or disclosing your health information for treatment, payment or health care operations, or to someone who is involved in your care or the payment for your care. We are not required to agree to your request unless you are asking us to restrict the use and disclosure of your health information to a health plan for payment as discussed below. If we do agree, we will comply with your request unless the information is needed to provide you emergency treatment and other exceptions pursuant to law.
If you paid out-of-pocket in full for a specific item or service, you have the right to ask that your health information with respect to that item or service not be disclosed to a health plan for purposes of payment or health care operations, and we will honor that request.
With certain exceptions, you have the right to inspect and copy your health information. Usually, such information includes prescription and billing records. We may deny your request to inspect and copy in certain limited circumstances, in which case, you may request that the denial be reviewed.
You have the right to request that we amend your health information if you feel that it is incorrect or incomplete. You must provide a reason supporting your request. We may deny your request if the health information is accurate and complete or is not part of the health information kept by or for us. Even if we deny your request for amendment, you have the right to submit a statement of disagreement regarding any item in your record you believe is incomplete or incorrect. If you request, this will become part of your medical record, and we will attach it to your records and include it whenever we make a disclosure of the item or statement you believe is incomplete or incorrect.
You have a right to request an accounting of disclosures of your health information. This is a list of disclosures we made of your health information, other than for treatment, payment, health care operations, and other exceptions pursuant to law. You must specify the time period, which may not be longer than six years and may not include dates before April 14, 2003.
If your health information is maintained in an electronic format, you have the right to request that an electronic copy of your record be given to you or transmitted to another entity. We will make every effort to provide access to your health information in the form or format you request if it is readily so producible. If it is not so producible, your record will be provided in either our standard electronic format or a readable hard copy form, as you choose. We may charge you a reasonable, cost-based fee for that service.
You have the right to be notified upon a breach of any of your unsecured health information.
You have the right to request that we communicate with you about medical matters in a certain way or at a certain location. For example, you may request that we contact you only at work or at a different residence or post office box. We will accommodate all reasonable requests.
