When sharing PHI with third-party service providers, we ensure they are also compliant with HIPAA regulations and bound by strict confidentiality agreements to protect your information.
Apart from the exceptions permitted by HIPAA, any other sharing of your PHI will only be done with your explicit authorization. You have the right to revoke such authorization at any time, except to the extent that we have already taken action in reliance on it.
We may disclose PHI when required by law, such as for public health activities, complying with legal proceedings, or responding to law enforcement requests.
