(“Agendia”) is committed to protecting the confidentiality of your medical and health information (“protected health information”) as described in this Notice and maintains the privacy of your protected health information as required by law. We have provided this Notice to you to describe the way we may use and share your protected health information. This Notice describes our privacy practices relating to protected health information, including how we may use your protected health information within Agendia and how under certain circumstances we may disclose it to others outside of Agendia. This Notice also describes the rights you have concerning your own protected health information. Please review it carefully.
USES AND DISCLOSURES OF PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION PERMITTED BY LAW
The law permits us to use your protected health information for treating you and billing for services and healthcare operations, as explained below. Certain types of protected health information have additional protection under state or federal law. For example, information about genetic testing and mental health treatment or conditions may have added protection. To disclose this type of information to others, Agendia is required to get your authorization as described below. Your protected health information may be used and disclosed only for the following purposes:
For treatment: We may use your protected health information to provide you with medical treatment and other services. We may also disclose your protected health information to others who need information to treat you, such as doctors, physician assistants, nurses, medical and nursing students, technicians, therapists, emergency service and medical transportation providers, medical equipment providers, and others involved in your care. For example, we will allow your physician to have access to your laboratory results to assist in your treatment and for follow-up care.
For payment: We may use and disclose your protected health information to get paid for the medical services and supplies we provide to you. For example, your health plan or health insurance company may ask to see parts of your medical record before they will pay us for your treatment.
To family members and others involved in your care: We may disclose your protected health information, unless prohibited by applicable federal or state law, to a family member, another relative, a close personal friend, a person identified by you who is involved in your medical care, or someone who helps pay for your care. If you do not want us to disclose your protected health information to family members or others, please contact Agendia’s privacy officer, as provided below. Without your authorization, Agendia may use or disclose protected health information about you in providing you with treatment alternatives, treatment reminders, or other health-related benefits and services. Agendia also may disclose protected health information in support of:
- Research – to researchers, subject to certain legal restrictions.
- Business Associates – to persons who provide services to Agendia and assure Agendia they will protect the protected health information.
- Health Oversight Activities – to government agencies responsible for oversight of the health care system or for ensuring compliance with the rules of government benefit programs, such as Medicare or Medicaid, or other regulatory programs that need protected health information to determine compliance, state insurance departments, U.S. Department of Labor and other government agencies.
- Law Enforcement – to federal, state and local law enforcement officials.
- Legal Proceedings – in response to a court order or other lawful process.
- Public Welfare – to address matters of public interest as required or permitted by law (e.g., child abuse and neglect, threats to public health and safety, cadaveric donations, and national security).
- Workers’ Compensation – to the extent required or permitted by law, Agendia may release protected health information about you for workers’ compensation or similar programs.
- Coroners and Funeral Directors – about decedents.
- Other – as necessary to comply with the law.
Uses and Disclosures Requiring Your Written Authorization
In situations other than those described above, Agendia will ask for your written authorization before using or disclosing your protected health information. For example, most uses and disclosures of psychotherapy notes, uses and disclosures of protected health information for marketing purposes, and disclosures that constitute a sale of protected health information require your authorization. If you have given Agendia an authorization, you may revoke it at any time, if Agendia has not already acted on it. Agendia is unable to take back any disclosures already made with your authorization. If you have questions regarding authorizations, please contact Agendia’s Privacy Official. Your Individual Rights The Privacy Rule gives you the right to make certain requests regarding protected health information about you. You may ask Agendia to:
- You have the right to access your PHI (Protected Health Information) that we have created. You can request to receive a copy of your test results we have on file. Please contact our Customer Care Department to obtain the request form to retrieve your test results. We may provide a copy or a summary of your health information, usually within 30 days of your written request.
- Restrict the way Agendia uses or discloses protected health information about you in connection with health care operations, payment and treatment. You also have the right to ask Agendia to restrict disclosures to persons involved in your health care. While Agendia will consider reasonable requests, Agendia is not required to agree to your request.
- Amend your record if you examine your protected health information and believe that some of the information is wrong or incomplete. Your request must be in writing and must include the reason for the request. We will comply with your request unless we are not the originator of the information or we believe that the information you request to be amended is accurate and complete or special circumstances apply. If your doctor or another person created the protected health information that you want to change, you should ask that person to amend the information.
- Provide a list of certain disclosures Agendia has made about you, such as disclosures of protected health information to government agencies. The accounting will not include disclosures made for treatment, payment or health care operations; disclosures made earlier than 6 years before the date of the request; and certain other disclosures excepted by law. Your request must be in writing. If you request such an accounting more than once in a 12-month period, Agendia may charge a reasonable fee. Your written request must be for a stated time period, which may not be longer than six years.
- Communicate your protected health information by alternative means of communication or at alternative locations. For example, you can ask us not to call your home but to communicate with you only by mail.
- Provide you with a paper copy of this Notice at any time by contacting Agendia’s Privacy Official.
You may make any of the requests described above by contacting Agendia’s Privacy Official. You also have the right to file a complaint if you think your privacy rights have been violated. To do so, please contact Agendia’s Privacy Official. You also may write to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Agendia will not retaliate against you for filing a complaint.
