The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, governs
how we protect all patient information.
Notice of Privacy Practices describes how we may use and disclose your protected
health information to carry out treatment, payment or health care operations and
for other purposes that are permitted or required by law. It also describes your
rights to access and control your protected health information. “Protected health
information” is information about you, including demographic information, that may
identify you and that relates to your past, present or future physical or mental
health or condition and related health care services.
We are required to abide by the terms of this Notice of Privacy Practices. We may
change the terms of our notice, at any time. The new notice will be effective for
all protected health information that we maintain at that time.
