Protecting your privacy and your medical information is at the core of our business. We recognize our obligation to keep your information secure and confidential whether on paper or the internet. At Advanced Eye Care Associates (hereafter referred to as the Practice), privacy is one of our highest priorities.
Keeping your medical and health information secure is important. We value your trust and will handle your information with care. Our employees access information about you only when necessary to provide treatment, verify eligibility, obtain authorization, process claims and otherwise meet your needs. We may also access information about you when considering a request from you when exercising our rights under the law or to abide by any agreement with you.
We safeguard information according to established security standards and procedures, and we continually assess new technology for protecting information. Our employees are trained to understand and comply with these information principles.
In the course of doing business, we collect and use various types of information, like name and address and claims information. We use this information to provide service to you, to process your claims and to bring you health information that might be of interest to you.
Keeping your health information accurate and up-to-date is important. If you believe the health information we have about you is incomplete, inaccurate or not current, please call or write us at the telephone number or address listed below. We will take appropriate action to correct any erroneous information as quickly as possible through a standard set of practices and procedures.
We limit who receives information and what type of information is shared. We share information within the Practice to deliver you the health care services you need.
We share information with companies that work for us, such as claim processing and companies that may deliver health education and information directly to you. These companies act on our behalf and are obligated contractually to keep the information we provide them confidential.
We release patient0-specific identifiable information only when required to provide a service for you and only to those with need to know, or with your consent. Information is released with condition that he person receiving the information will not release it further, unless you give permission.
If we receive a legal request requiring release of any information about you, we attempt to notify you (unless we are prohibited from doing so). Except as required by law or as described above, we do not share information with other parties, including government agencies.
We do not share any patient information with third-party marketeers who offer their products and services to our patients.
You can count on us to keep you informed about how we protect your privacy and limit the sharing of information you provide to us--whether it is at our office, over the phone or through the Internet.
