How We May Use and Disclose Health Information About You
Listed below are examples of the uses and disclosures that Everlast Recovery Centers may make of your protected health information. These examples are not meant to be exhaustive. Rather, they describe the types of uses and disclosures that may be made.
Uses and Disclosures of PHI for Treatment, Payment, and Health Care Operations
Your PHI may be used and disclosed by your physician, counselor, program staff, and others outside of our program that is involved in your care for the purpose of providing, coordinating, or managing your health care treatment and any related services. This includes coordination or management of your health care with a third party, consultation with other health care providers, or referral to another provider for health care treatment. For example, your protected health information may be provided to the state agency that referred you to our program to ensure that you are participating in treatment. In addition, we may disclose your protected health information from time to time to another physician or health care provider (e.g. a specialist or laboratory) who, at the request of the program, becomes involved in your care.
We will not use your PHI to obtain payment for your health care services without your written authorization. Examples of payment-related activities are: making a determination of eligibility or coverage for insurance benefits, processing claims with your insurance company, reviewing services provided to you to determine medical necessity, or undertaking utilization review activities.
We may use or disclose, as needed, your PHI in order to support the business activities of our program including, but not limited to, quality assessment activities, employee review activities, training of students, licensing, and conducting or arranging for other business activities. For example, we may use a sign-in sheet at the registration desk where you will be asked to sign your name and indicate your physician or counselor. We may also call you by name in the waiting room when it is time to be seen. We may share your PHI with third parties that perform various business activities (e.g. billing or typing services) for Everlast Recovery Centers, provided we have a written contract with the business that prohibits it from re-disclosing your PHI and requires it to safeguard the privacy of your PHI.
