During the time that you are a member of Alignment Health Plan HMO (AHP), it will be necessary for us to collect, maintain and disclose different kinds of information about you and your health. Generally, any information related to your past, present, or future physical or mental health that can or may be identified with you individually, is considered Protected Health Information ("PHI"). Examples include, but are not limited to, your name, gender, date of birth, and past medical history.
We are required by law to maintain the privacy and security of your PHI, and we are prohibited from disclosing your PHI except as the law specifies. We are also required to provide you with this Notice of Privacy Practices explaining our legal duties and our privacy practices with respect to the PHI we collect and maintain about you. This Notice of Privacy Practices ("Notice") also describes your rights with respect to your PHI.
If we make any changes to our privacy practices consistent with the law, we will promptly change this notice and provide a new notice. We will also maintain a current copy of our Notice of Privacy Practices on our website at http://www.alignmenthealthplan.com
PLEASE NOTE: This Notice describes only the privacy practices of AHP. Your doctor or medical group, and any specialty care provider, hospital, pharmacy or other provider that you may receive treatment or services from, may have their own notice describing how they maintain the privacy of your PHI.
