Your Rights Under HIPAA
Patients of Rising Phoenix Wellness Services have the right to request restrictions on our uses and disclosures of protected health information for treatment, payment and health care operations. However, we are not required to agree with a patient’s request.
Patients also have the right to reasonably request to receive communications of protected health information by alternative means or at alternative locations.
Subject to payment of a reasonable copying charge, patients have the right to inspect and copy the protected health information contained in their medical and billing records and in any other Rising Phoenix Wellness Services records used to make decisions about a patient’s care, except for:
- psychotherapy notes, which are notes recorded by a mental health professional documenting or analyzing the contents of conversation during a private counseling session or a group, joint or family counseling session and that have been separated from the rest of a patient’s medical record;
- information compiled in reasonable anticipation of, or for use in, a civil, criminal, or administrative proceeding;
- protected health information involving laboratory tests when your access is prohibited by law;
- if a patient is a prison inmate and obtaining such information would jeopardize a patient’s health, safety, security, custody, or rehabilitation or that of other inmates, or the safety of any officer, employee, or other person at the correctional institution or person responsible for transporting the patient;
- if we obtained or created protected health information as part of a research study for as long as the research is in progress, provided that the patient agreed to the temporary denial of access when consenting to participate in the research;
- a patient’s protected health information is contained in records kept by a federal agency or contractor when a patient’s access is denied by law; and
- if the protected health information was obtained from someone other than Rising Phoenix Wellness Services under a promise of confidentiality and the access requested would be reasonably likely to reveal the source of the information.
We may also deny a request for access to protected health information if:
- a licensed health care professional has determined, in the exercise of professional judgment, that the access requested is reasonably likely to endanger a patient’s life or physical safety or that of another person;
- the protected health information makes reference to another person (unless such other person is a health care provider) and a licensed health care professional has determined, in the exercise of professional judgment, that the access requested is reasonably likely to cause substantial harm to such other person; or
- the request for access is made by a patient’s personal representative and a licensed health care professional has determined, in the exercise of professional judgment, that the provision of access to such personal representative is reasonably likely to cause substantial harm to the patient or another person.
If we deny a request for access for any of the three reasons described above, then a patient will have the right to have our denial reviewed in accordance with the requirements of applicable law.
Patients have the right to request a correction to their protected health information, but we may deny that request for correction, if we determine that the protected health information or record that is the subject of the request:
- is not part of the patient’s medical or billing records;
- is not available for inspection as set forth above; or
- is accurate and complete.
In any event, any agreed upon correction will be included as an addition to, and not a replacement of, already existing records.
Patients have the right to receive an accounting of disclosures of protected health information made by us to individuals or entities other than to the patient, except for disclosures:
- to carry out treatment, payment, and health care operations as provided above;
- to persons involved in the patient’s care or for other notification purposes provided by law;
- for national security or intelligence purposes as provided by law;
- to correctional institutions or law enforcement officials as provided by law;
- or that occurred prior to April 14, 2003.
Patients have the right to request and receive a copy of this notice from us.
