Your Health Information

This section describes how medical information about you may be used and disclosed for normal business operations. Please review it carefully.

We may collect, use and communicate information about you for health care payment and operations, or when we are allowed or required by law to do so.

For Payment Purposes: We use and disclose information about you to manage your plan enrollment or benefits and to pay claims for health care you receive through your plan. For example, we keep information about your monthly fees and your enrollment status in the plans. We may also provide information to a doctor’s office to confirm your benefits, or we may ask a hospital for details about your treatment so that we may review and pay the claim for your care.

To Your Family or Person Designated by You: We may disclose your medical information, with your verbal permission in circumstances where it is impracticable to get your written permission, to a family member or other person designated by you to the extent necessary to help with your benefit request or with payment to keep your enrollment in plans active. We may use or disclose your name, location, and general condition or death to notify, or assist in the notification of (including identifying or locating), a person involved in your care.

Before we disclose your medical information to a person involved in your health care or payment for your health care, we will provide you with an opportunity to object to such uses or disclosures. If you are not present, or in the event of your incapacity or an emergency, we will disclose your medical information based on our professional judgment of whether the disclosure would be in your best interest.

As Allowed or Required by Law: Information about you may be shared for oversight activities required or allowed by law; for judicial or administrative proceedings; with public health authorities; for law enforcement purposes; with coroners, funeral directors or medical examiners (about decedents); for research purposes; to avert a serious threat to health or safety; for specialized government functions; for workers’ compensation purposes; and to respond to requests from the Secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Authorization: We will get your written permission before we use or share your protected health information for any other purpose, unless otherwise stated in this notice. You may withdraw this permission at any time, in writing. We will then stop using your information for that purpose. However, if we have already used or shared your information based on your authorization, we cannot undo any actions we took before you withdrew your permission.

Your Rights: Under current federal privacy regulations, you have the right to:
– see or get a copy of certain information that we have about you, or ask that we correct your personal information that you believe is missing or incorrect. If someone else (such as your doctor) gave us the information, we will let you know so you can ask him or her to correct it.
– ask us not to use your health information for payment or health care operations activities. We are not required to agree to these requests.
– ask us to communicate with you about health matters using reasonable alternative means or at a different address, if communications to your home address could endanger you.
