1640.015 HIPAA PRIVACY: PROVIDING NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES

Download
Policy

Florida International University (“FIU”) must provide to its patients the appropriate Notice of Privacy Practices (“NPP”) that describes the privacy practices of the specific health care component.

PERSONS TO WHOM NOTICE IS PROVIDED:

1. The NPP must be made available to any person upon request. 2. The NPP must be provided to the individual or the individual’s personal representative. 3. Florida International University health care components must provide the NPP to all individuals with whom the provider has a direct treatment relationship; except in those instances in which the health care provider is providing treatment in his or her capacity as a member of an organized health care arrangement (for example, when the physician-faculty member provides treatment at a health care facility such as a hospital that has created an organized health care arrangement with the members of its medical staff. This allows the physician-faculty member and the hospital to use a joint NPP.)
