Clients Rights and Privacy Practices

Our staff at TPCC, including providers and counselors, continually undergo training so that they may understand and comply with government rules and regulations regarding the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) with particular emphasis on the "Privacy Rule". We strive to achieve the highest standards of ethics and integrity in performing services for our patients. It is our policy to properly determine appropriate uses of Personal Health Information (PHI) in accordance with HIPAA. We are required by law to maintain the privacy of our patients and to provide individuals with the notice of our legal duties and privacy practices with respect to PHI, including HIV and Substance Abuse status. Therefore, pursuant to General Statute (GS) 130A-143, HIPAA Regulation 164.512 and Policies 42CFR and 45CFR, we have implemented a Compliance Program that will help prevent any inappropriate use of PHI.
