Your Choices

For certain health information, you can tell us your choices about what we share.  Please let us know if you have a clear preference for how we share your information in the situations described below.

You have both the right and choice to tell us to:

  • Share information with your family, close friends, or others involved in your care
  • Share information in a disaster relief situation

If you are not present, unable to communicate, or in an emergency situation, we may exercise professional judgment to determine whether to disclose information with others involved in your care. We may also share your information when needed to lessen a serious and imminent threat to health or safety.

In these cases we never share your information unless you give us written permission:

  • Marketing purposes
  • Sale of your information

In addition, federal and state laws require your specific written authorization for the disclosure of certain information about you. This information includes psychotherapy notes as defined by federal law; communications with certain behavioral health professionals; communications between domestic violence victims and domestic violence counselors, and between sexual assault victims and sexual assault counselors; and information related to substance abuse treatment, HIV testing or results, treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, and genetic testing or test results

In the case of fundraising:

  • We may contact you for fundraising efforts, but you can tell us not to contact you again
