Patient Consent and Acknowledgement of Receipt of Privacy Notice
I understand that as part of the provision of healthcare services, HENTA creates and maintains health records and other information describing among other things, my health history, symptoms, examination and test results, diagnoses, treatment, and any plans for future care or treatment. I have been provided with a Notice of Privacy Practices that provides a more complete description of the uses and disclosures of certain health information. I understand that I have the right to review the notice prior to signing this consent. I understand that HENTA reserves the right to change their Notice of Privacy Practices and prior to implementation will mail a copy of any revised notice to the address I have provided. I understand that I have the right to object to the use of my health information for directory purposes. I understand that I have the right to request restrictions as to how my health information may be used or disclosed, but that HENTA is not required in all cases to agree to the restrictions requested.
By signing this form, I consent to the use and disclosure of protected health information about me for the purposes of treatment, payment and health care operations. This consent is given freely with the understanding that:
1. Any and all records, whether written or oral or in electronic format, are confidential and cannot be disclosed for reasons outside of treatment, payment or health care operations without my prior written authorization, except as otherwise provided by law.
2. A photocopy or fax of this consent is as valid as this original.
