We will use your medical information to provide you with medical treatments or services. For example, information obtained by your health practitioner in this hospital will be recorded in your health record and used to determine the course of treatment that should work best for you.
This consists of your physicians, and others involved in providing you with care. Your health information may be shared with others involved in your care, such as specialty physicians or lab technicians.
Your healthcare information will be used to receive payment for services rendered by us. For example, a bill may be sent to either you or a third party payer with accompanying documentation that identifies you, your diagnosis, procedures performed and supplies used.
If you pay for your health care in full and out-of-pocket, you may request that we not share your information with your insurance company.
