1. Introduction

  • For Treatment. We may use PHI about you to provide, coordinate or manage your medical treatment and related services. We may disclose PHI about you to doctors, nurses, hospitals, clinics and other health care providers who are involved in taking care of you. Our various departments also may share PHI about you in order to coordinate your medical treatment and related services. For example, we may disclose PHI about you to people outside Alverno, such as other health care providers involved in providing medical treatment to ensure that the health care provider has appropriate information regarding your previous treatments and diagnoses.
  • For Payment. We may use and disclose PHI about you so that the services and items you receive from us, or other health care providers from whom you receive treatment, may be billed to, and payment may be collected from, you, an insurance company, or a third party payor. For example, we may need to give your insurance company information about the services or items you received from us so your insurance company will pay us or reimburse you for your services or items. We may also tell your insurance company about a service or item you are going to receive to obtain prior approval or to determine whether your plan will cover the service or item. We will not share treatment information with your insurance company or another third party payor when you pay out of pocket for the treatment.
  • For Health Care Operations. We may use and disclose PHI about you to carry out health care operations. These are activities that are necessary to operate our facilities and for administrative and quality assurance purposes. They include, for example: conducting quality assessment and improvement activities; reviewing the qualifications and performance of health care providers; training and performing accreditation, certification, or licensing activities; and managing our business and performing general administrative activities.
