Restriction of Use or Disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI) Policy
A patient has the right to request that the use and disclosure of his / her protected health information (PHI) be restricted for treatment and health care operations, as well as restricting disclosure to only certain people, such as certain family members. Individuals may restrict certain disclosures of PHI to a health plan where the individual, family member or other person pays out of pocket in full for the healthcare item or service, noting the restriction in the medical record. Physicians can submit restricted information for required Medicare and Medicaid audits.
The restriction request must be in writing, be specific as to what information is covered by the request, whether it covers use, disclosure, or both, and to whom these limitations apply.
If this practice agrees to the request, it will honor the request except when overriding laws or emergencies apply.
