Uses and Disclosures of Your Health Information

When you come into our agency there are many forms that you will need to complete and data that you will provide. We are required to compile much of this information by our funders and under Alaska law. Typically, the information we retain contains health information, including your symptoms, examinations and test results, diagnoses, treatment, a plan for future care or treatment, information from other providers, and billing and payment information. We understand your information is personal and we are committed to protecting health information about you. For many of the situations described below, we will use, disclose, or receive the minimum amount of health information necessary to accomplish the intended purpose.

The following categories describe the different ways we use and disclose your health information and give examples of the same. Not every use or disclosure in a category is listed. But, the ways we are permitted to use and disclose your health information will fall within one of the categories.
