The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) requires us to ask each of our patients to acknowledge receipt of our Notice of Privacy Practices. The Notice is published on this page. You acknowledge receipt of this notice by accepting terms and conditions.

TriVita Responsibilities

Under federal law, we are required to:

  • Protect the privacy of your PHI. All of our employees and physicians are required to maintain the confidentiality of PHI and receive appropriate privacy training

  • To our different departments to coordinate such activities as prescriptions, lab work, and X-rays.
  • To other health care providers treating you who are not on our staff such as dentists, emergency room staff, and specialists.

Your Rights Regarding Your Protected Health Information

You have the right to:

  • Request restrictions by asking that we limit the way we use or disclose your PHI for treatment, payment, or health care operations. You may also ask that we limit the information we give to someone who is involved in your care, such as a family member or friend. Please note that we are not required to agree to your request except when a restriction has been requested regarding a disclosure to a health plan in situations where the patient has paid for services in full and where the purpose of the disclosure is for payment or health care operations. If we do agree, we will honor your limits unless it is an emergency situation.
  • Ask that we communicate with you by another means. For example, if you want us to communicate with you at a different address we can usually accommodate that request. We may ask that you make your request to us in writing. We will agree to reasonable requests.
