A new federal law requires us to give you a Notice of Privacy Practices that the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services must follow in order to protect a patient’s health information.
This Notice informs you of three things:
- It tells you how we may use and disclose your health information, or the health information of the person you represent.
- It tells you what legal rights you have under this new law.
- It tells you what our legal duties are under this new law.
If you have any questions you may contact the Privacy Officer at (540) 375-4262.
