Your Privacy Is Assured
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) requires that health care providers keep patients informed on how they are actively protecting the confidentiality of their patient’s health information.
This HIPAA notice informs you of the ways MMCS Clinic may use and disclose health information about you, describes your rights as a patient, and states the obligations MMCS Clinic has regarding the use and disclosure of your health information.
This notice applies to any information created by MMCS Clinic staff (such as nurses and other professionals including volunteers) and physicians and other healthcare providers who provide services to you while you are an MMCS Clinic patient.
If you see other physicians or other healthcare providers in their private offices, different policies or practices may apply and you may want to ask them for a copy of their notice of privacy practices.
