THIS NOTICE DESCRIBES HOW MEDICAL AND DRUG AND ALCOHOL RELATED INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED AND DISCLOSED AND HOW YOU CAN GAIN ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION. PLEASE REVIEW IT CAREFULLY.
Health Care Information:
Information regarding your health care, including payment for health care, is protected by two federal laws: The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) 42 U.S.C. & 1320d et seq., 45 C.F.R. Parts 160 & 164, and the Confidentiality Law, 42 U.S.C. & 290dd-2, 42 C.F.R. Part 2. Under these laws, New Life may not say to a person outside New Life that you attend the program, nor may New Life disclose any information except as permitted by federal law.
New Life must obtain your written consent before it can disclose specific information about you in connection with our payment process. For example, New Life must obtain your written consent before it can disclose information to your health insurer in order to be paid for our services. Generally, you must also sign a written consent before New Life can share information for treatment purposes or for health care operations. However, federal law permits New Life to disclose information without your written permission:
- Pursuant to an agreement with a Qualified Service Organization;
- For research, audit or evaluations;
- To report crime committed on New Life premises or against New Life personnel;
- To medical personnel in a medical emergency;
- To appropriate authorities to report suspected child abuse or neglect;
- As allowed by court order.
For example, New Life can disclose information without your consent to obtain legal or financial services, or to another medical facility to provide health care to you, as long as there is a Qualified Service Organization Agreement in place.
Before New Life can use or disclose any information about your health in a manner which is not described above, it must obtain your specific written consent allowing it to make the disclosure. Any such written consent may be revoked by you in writing.
Under HIPAA you have the right to request restrictions on certain uses and disclosures of your health information. New Life is not required to agree to any restrictions you request, but if it does agree then it is bound by that agreement and may not use or disclose any information which you have restricted except as necessary in a medical emergency. You have the right to request that we communicate with you by alternative means or at an alternative location. New Life will accommodate such requests that are reasonable. Under HIPAA you also have the right to inspect and copy your own health information maintained by New Life, except to the extent that the information contains psychotherapy notes or information compiled for use in a civil, criminal or administrative proceeding or in other limited circumstances. Under HIPAA you also have the right, with some exceptions, to amend health care information maintained in New Life records, and to request and receive an accounting of disclosures of your health-related information made by New Life during the six (6) years prior to your request. You also have the right to receive a paper copy of this notice.
New Life Medical Addiction Services’ Duties:
New Life is required by law to maintain the privacy of your health information and to provide you with the notice of its legal duties and privacy practices with respect to your health information. New Life is required by law to abide by the terms of this notice. New Life reserves the right to change the terms of this notice and to make new notice provisions effective for all protected health information it maintains.
Complaints and Reporting Violations:
You may file a complaint with New Life and the Secretary of the United States Department of Health and Human Services if you believe that your privacy rights have been violated under HIPAA.
Violation of the Confidentiality Law by a program is a crime. Suspected violations of the Confidentiality Law may be reported to the United States Attorney in the district where the violation occurs.
