Client Rights and Notice of Privacy Practices
All County clients have certain rights with respect to their privacy. Your Protected Health Information, or PHI, for instance, is covered by HIPAA, and a variety of other state and federal laws. These laws require us to provide clients with a copy of our Notice of Privacy Practices if we are your treating provider. The Notice of Privacy Practices, or NPP, tells you how your PHI will be used, who will see your PHI, and how to file a complaint if you believe we mishandled your PHI. Generally your PHI will be used to treat you and to bill your insurance company. The NPP also outlines your rights, such as your ability to access or request a copy of your PHI, to request an amendment to, a restriction of, or an accounting of disclosures regarding your PHI. You also have the right to request a specific way for us to contact you about your PHI. For a complete description of your rights, view our Notice of Privacy Practices:
