This section explains your rights and some of our responsibilities to help you.

 

Your Rights

Get an electronic or paper copy of your medical record

• You can ask to see or get an electronic or paper copy of your medical record and other health information we have about you.

 

Ask us how to do this.

• We will provide a copy or a summary of your health information, usually within 30

days of your request. We may charge a reasonable, cost-based fee.

 

Ask us to correct your medical record

• You can ask us to correct health information about you that you think is incorrect

or incomplete. Ask us how to do this.

• We may say “no” to your request, but we’ll tell you why in writing within 60 days.

• You can ask us to contact you in a specific way (for example, home or office phone)

or to send mail to a different address.

• We will say “yes” to all reasonable requests.

Ask us to limit what we use or share

• You can ask us not to use or share certain health information for treatment,

payment, or our operations. We are not required to agree to your request, and we

may say “no” if it would affect your care.

• If you pay for a service or health care item out-of-pocket in full, you can ask us not to

share that information for the purpose of payment or our operations with your health

insurer. We will say “yes” unless a law requires us to share that information.

 

Get a list of those with whom we’ve shared information

• You can ask for a list (accounting) of the times we’ve shared your health information

for six years prior to the date you ask, who we shared it with, and why.

• We will include all the disclosures except those about treatment, payment, 

health care operations, and certain other disclosures (such as any you asked us to

make). We’ll provide one accounting a year for free but charge a reasonable,

cost-based fee if you ask for another within 12 months.

receive the notice electronically. We will promptly provide you with a paper copy.

guardian, that person can exercise your rights and make choices about your health

information.

• We will make sure the person has this authority and can act for you before we take

any action.

File a complaint if you feel your rights are violated

Office for Civil Rights by sending a letter to 200 Independence Avenue, S.W.,

• Include your information in a hospital directory

If you are not able to tell us your preference, for example, if you are unconscious,

we may go ahead and share your information if we believe it is in your best interest.

threat to health or safety.
