How We May Use and Disclose Health Information About Clients

Additionally, we may disclose clients protected health information to another physician or health care provider who becomes involved in clients care.

Payment – With client authorization, we may use and disclose PHI about clients so that we can receive payment for the treatment and services provided to clients from client insurance or other payor sources. Example: We give information about clients to client health insurance, so it will pay for client services.

Healthcare Operations – We may use and share client health info to run our business, improve client care, and contact clients when necessary. This may include quality assessment activities, employee review activities, licensing, and conducting other business activities.

We may share client PHI with third parties that perform various business activities for us, such as a billing company. Also, we may contact clients by phone to remind clients of appointments or to provide clients with additional information regarding your treatment or other health-related benefits.

Special Rules Regarding Disclosure of Behavioral Health, Substance Abuse, and HIV- Related Information: For disclosures concerning protected health information relating to care for psychiatric conditions, substance abuse or HIV-related testing and treatment, special restrictions may apply.

We may also disclose health information to clients family or friends if we can infer from the circumstances, based on our professional judgment that clients would not object. For example, we may assume clients agree to our disclosure of client personal health information to clients spouse when clients bring their spouse into treatment center or while treatment is discussed. In situations where clients are not capable of giving consent (because clients are not present or due to client incapacity or medical emergency), we may, using our professional judgment, determine that a disclosure to clients family member or friend is in the clients best interest. In that situation, we will disclose only health information relevant to the person’s involvement in your care.

Uses and Disclosures of PHI That Require Client Written Authorization

Other uses and disclosures of client PHI will be made only with client written authorization. Clients may revoke this authorization at any time, unless the program or its staff has taken an action in reliance on the authorization of the use or disclosure clients permitted.

  • I came to Hathaway Recovery on court orders stemming from charges due to not taking medications for my mental health. I was fearful of what my future held and what that would look like. I have never been to a dual diagnosis treatment program before, and I didn’t know what to expect. I really didn’t think I had a substance abuse problem but after about 3-4 weeks of group therapy and the counselors here at this facility, I finally realized substance abuse influenced me to not be able to take care of my mental health. With the help of Hathaway Recovery’s team, I was able to build a strong foundation for my recovery that is vital to me and my family. The clinical staff, therapist, case managers, and counselors included, were honest, caring, and really helped me gain the knowledge I needed to build this recovery program and lifestyle. I am forever grateful for the treatment at Hathaway Recovery.

  • As a Trauma Informed Therapist I was contracted by Dina , the Owner to provide additional Trauma Informed Counseling. She indicated that she was seeking additional clinical services because her client population were enthusiastic about their recovery and she wanted to provide quality care. Working with Hathaway has been magical. This program does not separate addiction and mental health trauma into separate treatments, This program blends together the understanding that addicts have childhood trauma and have habitually used drugs or alcohol to dull their inner pain., Hathaway Recovery provides highly individual services for each client, including bilingual counseling. This is a program that I am proud to be a part of. Susan Pennington, LCSW – Trauma Informed Counseling Services.

  • Hathaway Recovery Center is the real deal. They helped me find myself when I was completely lost. After I lost the mother of my child due to a tragic accident. The therapists and counselors truly cared. We made a relationship with each other that was unbreakable. The other clients were awesome roommates and true to me. The house managers were great and the living situations were awesome. If I ever even think about slipping up I’ll be returning. Today I have over one year clean.
