California Privacy Rules
Protected Health Information
Protected Health Information (PHI) includes information such as a prescription. We use your PHI only when necessary, and we take measures to prevent unnecessary disclosure of this information.
There are certain exceptions where we may use and disclose your PHI, including:
When required to do so by federal, state, or local law, law enforcement, and judicial or administrative proceedings.
Workers Compensation purposes.
To prevent or minimize a serious threat or harm to an individual or the public, your PHI may be given to law enforcement.
For Health Oversight Activities, such as assisting the government in conducting an investigation, or for Public Health Activities, such as for controlling or preventing disability, injury, or disease
Individuals authorized by you to obtain your PHI to participate in your healthcare
Military personnel in certain situations
In certain other circumstances, we will obtain your written authorization for using or disclosing all or part of your PHI; you can revoke this authorization by providing a written request to discontinue future uses and disclosures of your PHI.
Uses and disclosures may occur incidentally. An incidental use or disclosure is one that cannot be avoided by reasonable measures, that occurs as a secondary use, is in a limited capacity, and/or may occur as result of another, allowed use or disclosure. These incidental uses or disclosures do not disclose PHI any more than is needed to achieve the permitted use or disclosure, and are allowed only to the extent where we have utilized all practical preventative measures.
You have the right to request limited use and disclosure of your PHI. We may honor your request, unless we are legally required or allowed to the use or disclosure of your PHI. You also may request that we send your PHI to you in a specified manner, such as regular mail rather than email, and we will agree to this request inasmuch as it is easily accomplished.
You have the right to see or obtain copies of your PHI in most instances. We will respond to your request for your PHI within 30 days, and we will inform you if we do not have that information but know who does. In some cases, we may deny your request, giving reasons for the denial. You may request to have the denial reviewed. If we provide copies of your PHI, we may assess a per-page charge, of up to $1 per page. You may agree to receive a summary or explanation of your PHI, rather than the PHI, which we can provide; there may a charge for this service also.
Furthermore, you have the right to receive an accounting of certain disclosures of your PHI made by us during the six-year period prior to your request. We will respond to your request within 60 days of your request. This information will be in a list format, including to whom the PHI was disclosed and the date of the disclosure. The list will not include certain disclosures, such as those made to you or your authorized person or persons, for treatment, payment, or healthcare operations, or provided for a valid authorization. This list will be provided at no charge if requested once per year; if requested more frequently, we may charge $30 for each additional request.
You also have the right to amend your PHI records. If you think that there is an error in your PHI records, or some critical information is missing, you have the right to request that we amend these records by sending us this request in writing. Please include the reason for the request. We will respond within 60 days of receiving your request, notifying you of our actions, which will be either to comply with your request and make the correction or to deny your request if we believe that the information we have is accurate or other special circumstances apply.
If you have questions or would like further information about your privacy rights, would like file a complaint of our privacy practices regarding your PHI, please contact us at the contact information listed at the top of this notice. You may also file a written complaint to the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services in Washington, DC.
