Examples of How We May Use and Disclose PHI
The following categories describe and provide examples of different ways that we use and disclose PHI about you when, in our professional judgment, it is in your best interest, when the information is requested by the Indiana Board of Pharmacy or by a law enforcement officer charged with enforcement of laws pertaining to drugs or devices or the practice of pharmacy, or when the disclosure is essential to our business operations.
For treatment. Examples: Information obtained by the pharmacist will be used to dispense prescription medications to you or to coordinate or manage health care with a health care provider involved in your care or to consult with a health care provider relating to your treatment. This would include contacting and communicating with any health care professionals (or their representatives) involved in your care as we deem appropriate. We will also document in your record information related to the medications dispensed to you and services provided to you.
For payment. Example: We will contact your insurer or pharmacy benefit manager to determine whether it will pay for your prescription and the amount of your co-payment responsibility. We will collect from you or a third party payor the amount due for prescription medications dispensed to you. The information on or accompanying the communication may include information that identifies you, as well as the prescriptions you are taking.
For health care operations. Example: We may use or disclose information in your health record to monitor the performance of the pharmacists providing treatment to you or to detect and prevent fraud and abuse by appropriate methods or for compliance programs. This information will be used in an effort to continually improve the quality and effectiveness of the health care and service we provide.
We may also use or disclose PHI for the following purposes:
Business associates. There are some services provided by us through contracts with business associates. Examples include billing, claims processing and administration and data analysis. When these services are contracted for, we may disclose PHI to our business associates so that they can perform the job we have asked them to do and collect from you or your third-party payor for services rendered. To protect PHI, the business associate must appropriately safeguard the PHI as part of our contract with the business associate.
Communications with individuals involved in your care or payment for your care: Health professionals such as pharmacists, using their professional judgment, may disclose to your representative involved in your care (i.e., a family member, other relative, close personal friend or neighbor or any person you identify) PHI that is relevant to your care, assistance in matters pertaining to your care or therapy and to that person’s involvement in your care. We may also disclose PHI to such person that is relevant to payment related to your care.
