HIPAA and Patient Rights

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 mandated changes in regulations governing the provision of health benefits, delivery and payment of health care services and security and confidentiality of patient health information.

 

We are required by law to:

  • Make sure that your medical information is protected
  • Give you this Notice describing our legal duties and privacy practices with respect to medical information about you
  • Follow the terms of the Notice that is currently in effect.

 

All of the ways we are permitted to use and disclose information, however, will fall within one of the following categories.

 

  • For Treatment
  • For Payment
  • For Health Care Operations
  • Appointment Reminders
  • Treatment Alternatives
  • Health-Related Benefits and Services

 

We reserve the right to change our privacy practices and this notice. We reserve the right to make the revised or changed notice effective for medical information we already have about you as well as any information we receive in the future.
