Tal BH Privacy Policy – HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices

Notice Of Privacy Practice


Tal BH is required by law to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of your health information and to provide you with notice of its legal duties and privacy practices with respect to your health information. Please also respect the privacy of others you encounter in treatment.

Tal BH collects health information about you and stores it in an electronic health record. This is your medical record. The medical record is the property of Tal BH, but the information in the medical record belongs to you. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires Tal BH to maintain the privacy of your medical record. HIPAA generally requires that any uses or disclosures of information in your medical record be limited to the minimum necessary to the purposes of the uses or disclosures. HIPAA also provides you certain rights with respect to the information in your medical record which are described below.

Information relating to your treatment at Tal BH is protected by federal regulations specific to drug and alcohol treatment, which are known as 42 CFR Part 2. These regulations protect the confidentiality of information relating to the identity, diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment of any patient in a drug or alcohol treatment program. Tal BH may not disclose records relating to your treatment without your written consent, except in narrowly limited circumstances. Under 42 CFR Part 2, the terms of a written consent to disclose information must specify the scope and types of information to be disclosed, the parties to whom the information may be disclosed, the purpose of the disclosure and the timeframe of the consent. You may revoke a consent to disclose information relating to drug and alcohol verbally or in writing at any time.

Tal BH may ask for your written consent to disclose treatment information for certain purposes, including releasing treatment information to or obtaining information from your other medical providers, obtaining payment from insurance or other payors, contacting your family either for treatment purposes or in the case of a medical or other emergency. Tal BH will not disclose your treatment information for these purposes without your consent.

Tal BH may disclose treatment information without your written consent under certain narrow circumstances as permitted by 42 CFR Part 2. For treatment purposes, Tal BH is permitted to use and disclose treatment information internally and to entities with which it shares administrative control. Tal BH is permitted to share treatment information as necessary with qualified service organizations that agree to maintain the confidentiality of the information. Tal BH also may disclose treatment information to outside auditors, regulatory agencies, and evaluators and for certain research purposes.

Tal BH may disclose treatment information without your written consent when necessary in a life-threatening medical emergency and may disclose to report a crime on the premises or against Tal BH personnel. Tal BH also may disclose patient information without consent where the state mandates child abuse and neglect reporting; when cause of death is being reported; or when required by a valid court order that contains specific required findings. Tal BH may contact you to share information about Tal BH treatment services or to send you reminder notices of future appointments for your treatment.

Your Health Information Rights

In addition to protecting privacy and confidentiality, HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2 afford you the following rights with respect to your medical record and drug or alcohol treatment information:

  • You have the right to a paper copy of this written notice of Tal BH privacy practices.
  • You have a right to request a copy of your treatment record or to receive your health information through a reasonable alternative means or at an alternative location. Tal BH requires that all such requests be put in writing. A reasonable fee will be charged for copying your health information.
  • You have a right to request that Tal BH amend health information that is incorrect or incomplete. If Tal BH determines not to amend the health information, it will provide you with an explanation of the reason for the denial and your rights to disagree with the denial.
  • You have a right to request restrictions on otherwise permitted uses and disclosures of your health information. Tal BH is not obligated to comply with such requests.
  • You may request that we provide you with a written accounting of all disclosures made by us during a specific time period (not to exceed 6 years). We ask that such requests be made in writing on a form provided by our facility. Please note that an accounting will not apply to any of the following types of disclosures: disclosures made with your written consent for reasons of treatment, payment or health care operations; disclosures made to you or your legal representative, or any other individual involved with your care. You will not be charged for your first accounting request in any 12-month period. However, for any requests that you make thereafter, you will be charged a reasonable, cost-based fee.
