At MD Care, Inc. we are committed to protecting your privacy. This statement demonstrates our compliance with applicable privacy laws and explains how any information collected by the Web site is used.
Information Collection, Disclosure and Use
There are federal and state laws that protect the privacy of your medical records and personal health information. Your personal health information privacy is protected under these laws. Any personal information provided when you enroll in this plan is protected. We will make sure that unauthorized people do not see or change your records. We must get written permission from you (or from someone you have given legal power to make decisions for you) before we can give your health information to anyone who is not providing your care or paying for your care. There are exceptions allowed or required by law, such as release of health information to government agencies that are checking on quality of care.
The laws that protect your privacy give you rights related to getting information and controlling how your health information is used. It is required that we provide you with a notice that tells about these rights and explains how we protect the privacy of your health information. You also have the right to ask plan providers to make additions or corrections to your medical records (if you ask plan providers to do this, they will review your request and figure out whether the changes are appropriate). You have the right to know how your health information has been given out and used for non-routine purposes. If you have questions or concerns about privacy of your personal information and medical records, please call Member Services at 1-888-285-9676, (TTY/TDD: 1-800-735-2929) Monday through Sunday, 8am to 8pm, October 15th through March 1st, including holidays, after March 2nd Monday through Friday 8am to 8pm.
