Our office is dedicated to protect the privacy rights of our patients and the confidential information entrusted to us. The commitment of each employee to ensure that your health information is never compromised is a principle concept of our practice. We may, from time to time, amend our privacy policies and practices but will always inform you of any changes that might affect your rights.
Protecting Your Personal Healthcare Information
We use and disclose the information we collect from you only as allowed by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and the state of Colorado. This includes issues relating to your treatment, payment, and our dental care operations. Your personal health information will never be otherwise given to anyone –even family members- without your written consent. You, of course, may give written authorization for us to disclose your information to anyone you choose, for any purpose.
You have a right to request copies of your healthcare information: to request copies in a variety of formats: and to request a list of instances in which we, or our business associated, have disclosed your protected information for uses other than stated above. All such requests must be in writing. We may charge fro your copies in an amount allowed by law. If you believe your rights have been violated, we urge you to notify us immediately. You can also notify the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
We thank you for coming to our office. Please let us know if you have any questions concerning your privacy rights and the protection of your personal health information.
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE A COPY AS WE ARE HAPPY TO PROVIDE YOU WITH ONE.
