This notice will explain how we handle your medical/mental health information. Applicable federal and state laws require us to maintain the privacy of clients’ personal and health information. In this Notice, your personal or protected health information is referred to as “health information” or “PHI” and includes information regarding your health care and treatment with identifiable factors, such as your name, age, address, income or other financial information. Because state and federal laws, combined with our professional ethics, are very complicated, some parts of this notice are very detailed and may seem difficult to understand. Please know that we are committed to protecting the privacy of your health and personal information and are available to answer any questions you may have.
