Your Rights Under the Federal Privacy Standard
Although your health records are the physical property of the health care provider who completed the records, you have the following rights with regard to the information contained therein:
Request restriction on uses and disclosures of your health information for treatment, payment, and health care operations. “Health care operations” consist of activities that are necessary to carry out the operations of the provider, such as quality assurance and peer review. The right to request restrictions does not extend to uses or disclosures permitted or required under following sections of the federal privacy regulations: 164.502(a)2(2)(i) (disclosures to you), 164.510(a) (for facility directories, but note that you have the right to object to such uses), or 164.512 (uses and disclosures not requiring a consent or an authorization). The latter uses and disclosures include, for example, those required by law, such as mandatory communicable disease reporting. In cases, you do not have the right to request restriction. You may also ask us to communicate with you by other means, and if the method of communication is reasonable, we must grant the alternate communication request.
Obtain a copy of this notice of information practices. You have the right to a hard copy upon your request.
Inspect and copy your health information upon request. Again, this right is not absolute. In certain situations, such as if access would cause harm, we can deny access. You do not have a right of access to the following:
Psychotherapy notes, information complied in reasonable anticipation of or for use in civil, criminal, or administrative actions or proceedings, PHI that is subject to CLIA to the extent that giving you access would be prohibited by law, information obtained from someone other than a health care provider under promise of confidentiality and the requested access would be reasonably likely to reveal the course of information, and information that is copyright protected. In other situations, we may deny you access, but if we do, we must provide you a review of our decision denying access.
You have the right to request amendment/correction of your health information. We do not have to grant the request if the following conditions exist: We did not create the record, and/ or the record is accurate and complete.
Obtain an accounting of non-routine uses and disclosures, those other than for treatment, payment, and health care operations.
We accept checks, cash or credit cards. We also offer a flexible payment plan. Please see our Financial Coordinator for details.
Insurance and Billing
We accept most traditional insurance plans. Please contact our office to verify acceptance of your plan. Qualifications for insurance coverage may differ due to the uniqueness of each procedure.
