Remsleep Holdings, Inc. (remsleep.com) may use and disclose your ‘Protected Health Information’, or ‘PHI’ for short, for many different reasons. PHI includes information that can be used to identify you that we have created or received about your past, present, or future health condition, such as a prescription. We must provide you with this notice about our privacy practices regarding use and disclosure of your PHI. With some exceptions, we may not use or disclose any more of your PHI than is necessary to accomplish the purpose of the use or disclosure. Below, we describe the different categories of uses and disclosure.
We may use and disclose your PHI for the following reasons:
- When required by federal, state or local law, judicial or administrative proceedings, or law enforcement. We may disclose PHI of military personnel and veterans in certain situations.
- For health oversight activities. For example, we will provide information to assist the government when it conducts an investigation.
- To avoid harm. In order to avoid a serious threat to the health or safety of a person or the public, we may provide PHI to law enforcement personnel or persons able to prevent or lessen such harm.
- For workers compensation purposes. We may provide PHI in order to comply with workers compensation laws.
- To make targeted merchandising offers or send pertinent information about our services directly to you.
We may provide your PHI to a family member, friend, or other person that you indicate is involved in your care or the payment for your health care, unless you object in whole or in part.
In any other situation not described above, we will ask for your written authorization before using or disclosing any of your PHI. If you choose to sign an authorization to disclose your PHI, you can later revoke that authorization in writing to stop any future uses and disclosures (to the extent that we have not taken any action relying on the authorization).
Incidental uses and disclosures of information may occur. An incidental use or disclosure is a secondary use or disclosure that cannot reasonably be prevented, is limited in nature, and that occurs as a by-product of an otherwise permitted use or disclosure. However, such incidental uses or disclosure are permitted only to the extent that we have applied reasonable safeguards and do not disclose any more of your PHI than is necessary to accomplish the permitted use or disclosure.
You have the right to ask that we limit how we use and disclose your PHI. We will consider your request but are not legally required to accept it. If we accept your request, we will put any limits in writing and abide by them except in emergency situations. You may not limit the uses and disclosures that we are legally required or allowed to make.
You have the right to ask that we send information to you to an alternate address or by alternate means (for example, e-mail instead of regular mail). We must agree to your request so long as we can easily provide it in the format you requested.
In most cases, you have the right to look at or receive copies of your PHI. If we do not have your PHI but we know who does, we will tell you how to reach the entity that does have it. We will respond to you within 30 days after receiving your request, which must be in writing.
If you believe that there is a mistake in your PHI or that a piece of important information is missing, you have the right to request that we correct the existing information or add the missing information. We will respond within 60 days of receiving your request which you must provide in writing along with the reason for your request. We may deny your request in writing if the PHI is (i) correct and complete, (ii) not created by us, (iii) not allowed to be disclosed, or (iv) not part of our records. Our written denial will state the reasons for the denial and explain your right to file a written statement of disagreement with the denial. If you do not file written statement of disagreement, you have the right to ask that your request and our denial be attached to all future disclosures of your PHI. If we approve your request, we will make the change to your PHI and inform you, or others, if required, about the changes.
