Welcome to the Aria HIPAA Privacy Notice. This HIPAA Privacy Notice applies to “Protected Health Information” or “PHI”. PHI is a subset of the personal information that we may collect from you when we submit a claim to your insurance provider so that they can reimburse us for the products or services that you are purchasing. Because PHI is regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), we are required to provide you with this notice.
Inova Labs, Inc. (d/b/a Aria Health) (“we”, “us” or “our”) may use and disclose your PHI for many different reasons. PHI includes information that can be used to identify you that we have created or received about your past, present, or future health condition, such as a prescription. We must provide you with this notice about our privacy practices regarding use and disclosure of your PHI. With some exceptions, we may not use or disclose any more of your PHI than is necessary to accomplish the purpose of the use or disclosure. Below, we describe the different categories of uses and disclosure.
Opportunities to Object. We may provide your PHI to a family member, friend, or other person that you indicate is involved in your care or the payment for your health care, unless you object in whole or in part.
When We Require Written Authorization. In any other situation not described above, we will ask for your written authorization before using or disclosing any of your PHI. If you choose to sign an authorization to disclose your PHI, you can later revoke that authorization in writing to stop any future uses and disclosures (to the extent that we have not taken any action relying on the authorization).
Incidental Uses and Disclosures. Incidental uses and disclosures of information may occur. An incidental use or disclosure is a secondary use or disclosure that cannot reasonably be prevented, is limited in nature, and that occurs as a by-product of an otherwise permitted use or disclosure. However, such incidental uses or disclosure are permitted only to the extent that we have applied reasonable safeguards and do not disclose any more of your PHI than is necessary to accomplish the permitted use or disclosure.
