Notice of Privacy Practices

Important information about your rights and our responsibilities

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


State Notice of Privacy Practices

When it comes to handling your health information, we follow relevant state laws, which are sometimes stricter than the federal HIPAA privacy law. This notice explains your rights and our duties under state law.

Your state may give you additional rights to limit sharing your health information. Please contact CarelonRx Privacy at:

Your Personal Information

Your nonpublic (private) personal information (PI) identifies you. You have the right to see and correct your PI. We may collect, use and share your PI as described in this notice. Our goal is to protect your PI because your information can be used to make judgments about your health, finances, character, habits, hobbies, reputation, career and credit.

We may receive your PI from others, such as hospitals, insurance companies, or other doctors. We may also share your PI with others outside our company — without your approval, in some cases. But we take reasonable measures to protect your information.

If an activity requires us to give you a chance to opt out, we’ll let you know, and we’ll let you know how to tell us you don’t want your PI used or shared for an activity you can opt out of


HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices

We keep the health and financial information of our current and former patients private as required by law and our own internal rules. We’re also required by federal law to give you this notice to explain your rights and our legal duties and privacy practices.

Your Protected Health Information

There are times we may collect, use and share your Protected Health Information (PHI) as allowed or required by law, including the HIPAA Privacy rule. Here are some of those times:

Payment: We collect, use and share PHI to get payment for the medical care you receive from us or share information with the doctors, clinics, and others who bill us for your care.

Healthcare operations: We collect, use and share PHI for our healthcare operations.

Treatment activities: We collect, use and share PHI to provide the care, medicine, and services you need or to help doctors, hospitals, and others get you the care you need. Examples of ways we use your information

  • We may share PHI with your other doctors or your hospital so that they may treat you.
  • We may use PHI to review the quality of care and services you get.
  • We may use PHI to help you with services for conditions like asthma, diabetes, or traumatic injury.
  • We may collect and use publicly and/or commercially available data about you to support you and help you get available health services.
  • We may use your PHI to create, use or share de-identified data as allowed by HIPAA.
  • We may also use and share PHI directly or indirectly with health information exchanges for payment, healthcare operations and treatment. If you don’t want your PHI to be shared in these situations, contact Carelon Health Privacy at (562) 741-4521 for more information.
  • We may also send you reminders about routine medical checkups and tests.
  • We may share your information in an emergency or disaster relief situation.

Sharing your PHI with you: We must give you access to your own PHI.

You may get emails that have limited PHI, such as appointment reminders. We’ll ask your permission and preferences for how we contact you.

Sharing your PHI with others: In most cases, if we use or share your PHI outside of treatment, payment, operations, or research activities, we have to get your permission in writing first. We must also get your written permission before:

  • Using your PHI for certain marketing activities.
  • Selling your PHI.
  • Sharing any psychotherapy notes from your doctor or therapist.

You have the right and choice to tell us to:

Share information with your family, close friends or others involved with your current treatment or payment for your care.

Other reasons we may use or share your information:

We are allowed, and in some cases required, to share your information in other ways — usually for the good of the public, such as public health and research. We can share your information for these specific purposes:

  • Helping with public health and safety issues, such as:
    • Preventing disease
    • Helping with product recalls
    • Reporting adverse reactions to medicines
    • Reporting suspected abuse, neglect, or domestic violence
    • Preventing or reducing a serious threat to anyone’s health or safety.
  • Doing health research.
  • Obeying the law, if it requires sharing your information.
  • Responding to organ donation groups for research and certain reasons.
  • Addressing workers’ compensation, law enforcement and other government requests, and to alert proper authorities if we believe you may be a victim of abuse or other crimes.
  • To work with a medical examiner or funeral director.
  • Responding to lawsuits and legal actions

Authorization: We’ll get your written permission before we use or share your PHI for any purpose not stated in this notice. You may cancel your permission at any time, in writing. We will then stop using your PHI for that purpose. But if we’ve already used or shared your PHI with your permission, we cannot undo any actions we took before you told us to stop.

Race, ethnicity, language, sexual orientation and gender identity: We may infer, receive and/or maintain race, ethnicity, language, sexual orientation and gender identity information about you and protect this information as described in this notice. We may use this information to help you, including identifying your specific needs, developing programs and educational materials and offering interpretation services. We don’t share this information with unauthorized persons.


Your Rights

Under federal law, you have the right to:

    • Send us a written request to see or get a copy of your PHI, including a request for a copy of your PHI through email. Remember, there’s a risk your PHI could be read by a third party when it’s sent unencrypted, meaning regular email. So, we will first confirm that you want to get your PHI by unencrypted email before sending it to you. We will provide you a copy of your PHI usually within 30 days of your request, unless a more stringent state requirement applies. If we need more time, we will let you know.
    • Ask that we correct your PHI that you believe is wrong or incomplete. If someone else, such as another doctor, gave us the PHI, we’ll let you know so you can ask him or her to correct it. We may say “no” to your request, but we’ll tell you why in writing within 60 days.
    • Send us a written request not to use your PHI for treatment, payment or healthcare operations activities. We may say “no” to your request, but we’ll tell you why in writing.
    • Request confidential communications. You can ask us to send your PHI or contact you using other ways that are reasonable. Also, let us know if you want us to send your mail to a different address if sending it to your home could put you in danger.
    • Send us a written request to ask us for a list of those with whom we’ve shared your PHI. We will provide you a list usually within 60 days of your request. If we need more time, we will let you know.
    • Ask for a restriction for services you pay for out of your own pocket: If you pay in full for any medical services out of your own pocket, you have the right to ask for a restriction. The restriction would prevent the use or sharing of that PHI for treatment, payment or operations reasons. If a law requires sharing your information, we don’t have to agree to your restriction.

How we protect information

We’re dedicated to protecting your PHI, and we’ve set up a number of policies and information practices to help keep your PHI secure and private. If we believe your PHI has been breached, we must let you know.

We keep your oral, written and electronic PHI safe using the right procedures, and through physical and electronic ways. These safety measures follow federal and state laws. Some of the ways we keep your PHI safe include securing offices that hold PHI, password-protecting computers, and locking storage areas and filing cabinets. We require our employees to protect PHI through written policies and procedures. These policies limit access to PHI to only those employees who need the data to do their jobs. Employees are also required to wear ID badges to help keep unauthorized people out of areas where your PHI is kept. Also, where required by law, our business partners must protect the privacy of data we share with them as they work with us. They’re not allowed to give your PHI to others without your written permission, unless the law allows it and it’s stated in this notice.


Potential impact of other applicable laws

HIPAA, the federal privacy law, generally doesn’t cancel other laws that give people greater privacy protections. As a result, if any state or federal privacy law requires us to give you more privacy protections, then we must follow that law in addition to HIPAA
