Notice of Privacy Practices

THIS NOTICE DESCRIBES HOW MEDICAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED AND DISCLOSED AND HOW YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION. PLEASE REVIEW IT CAREFULLY.

The Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) is a federal program that requires that all medical records and other individually identifiable health information used or disclosed by us in any form, whether electronically, on paper or orally, are kept properly confidential. This Act gives you, the patient, significant new rights to understand and control how your health information is used. “HIPAA” provides penalties for covered entities that misuse personal health information.

Uses and Disclosures

Treatment
Your health information may be used by staff members or disclosed to other health care professionals for the purpose of evaluating your health, diagnosing medical conditions, and providing treatment. For example, results of tests and procedures will be available in your medical record to all health professionals who may provide treatment or who may be consulted by staff members.

Payment
Your health information may be used to seek payment from your health plan, from other sources of coverage such as an automobile insurer, or from credit card companies that you may use to pay for services. For example, your health plan may request and receive information on dates of service, the services provided, and the medical condition being treated.

Health care operations
Your health information may be used, as necessary, to support the day-to-day activities and management of California Home Medical Equipment & Affiliates. For example, information on the services you received that may be used to support budgeting and financial reporting, and activities to evaluate and promote quality.

Business Associates
Your health information may be disclosed to our business associates, such as subcontractors, so they can perform the jobs we have asked them to do. To protect your health information, we require the business associate to appropriately safeguard your health information.

Law enforcement
Your health information may be disclosed to law enforcement agencies to support government audits and inspections, to facilitate law-enforcement investigations, and to comply with government-mandated reporting.

Worker’s Compensation
Your health information may be disclosed to comply with worker’s compensation laws and other similar programs that provide benefits for work-related injuries or illnesses.

Other uses and disclosures require your authorization. Disclosure of your health information or its use for any purpose other than those listed above requires your specific written authorization. If you change your mind after authorizing a use or disclosure of your information, you may submit a written revocation of the authorization. However, your decision to revoke the authorization will not affect or undo any use or disclosure of information that occurred before you notified us of your decision to revoke your authorization.
