    • Denials. We may deny your request to inspect and/or receive copies of your medical information if it is not in writing and in other, very limited circumstances. You will receive a written notice of denial containing the reason for denial and the procedure for review. In some circumstances, another licensed health care professional chosen by R+ may review your request and the denial. The person conducting the review will not be the person who denied your request. We will comply with the outcome of the review. You may also have the right to request a review of our denial of access through a court of law. All requirements, court costs and attorneys’ fees associated with a review of a denial by a court are your responsibility. You should seek legal advice if you are interested in pursuing such rights.

    If you feel that medical information we have about you is incorrect or incomplete, you may ask us to amend the information. You have the right to request an amendment for as long as the information is kept by, or for, R+. In your written request, you must provide a reason that supports your request for amendment.

    • Send request to: Compliance Officer at TJRH, 1301 North Race Street, Glasgow, KY 42141

    • Denials. We may deny your request for an amendment if it is not in writing or does not include a reason to support the request. In addition, we may deny your request if you ask us to amend information that:
      •  Was not created by us, unless the person or entity that created the information is no longer available to make the amendment;
      • Is not part of the medical information kept for or by R+;
      • Is not part of the information which you would be permitted to inspect and copy; or
      • Is accurate and complete.

        If your request for amendment is denied, we will provide you with a written statement of the basis for the denial and a description of how you may file a written statement of disagreement. If you do not file a statement of disagreement, you may request that your request for amendment and our written denial be provided with any future disclosures of your medical information.

    You have the right to request an “accounting of disclosures”. This is a list of the disclosures we made regarding medical information about you.
    •  Exclusions.
      The list will not include: disclosures made for treatment, payment, or health care operations; disclosures made directly to you; disclosures authorized by you pursuant to a signed authorization; disclosures made for national security or intelligence purposes; and disclosures to correctional institutions and for other law enforcement purposes. This list also will not include disclosures made before April 14, 2003. Your request must include a time period, which may not exceed six (6) years prior to the date of the request and may not include any dates prior to April 14, 2003. Your request should also indicate in what form, i.e., electronic or paper, you would like your request to be processed. We will provide the first list to you at no charge; however, if you make more than one request in the same year, we may charge you up to $1.00 per page for each additional request. We will notify you of the cost involved and you may choose to withdraw or modify your request at that time before any costs are incurred.

    • Electronic Health Record.
      An accounting of disclosures from the electronic health record related to treatment, payment or health care operations will be made only for the six (6) year period preceding the request.

    You have the right to request a restriction or limitation on the PHI we use or disclose about you for treatment, payment or health care operations. You also have the right to request a limit on the medical information we disclose about you to someone who is involved in your care, like a family member or friend. For example, you could ask that we not use or disclose information about a surgery you had. You may request a restriction or revise a restriction of your PHI by providing a written request stating the specific restriction required. However, we are not required to grant your request unless it involves the disclosure of PHI to a health plan for purposes of carrying out payment or health care operations that pertains solely to a health care item or service for which R+ has been paid out of pocket in full. If we do grant your request, we will comply with your request unless the information is needed to provide you emergency medical treatment. If restricted PHI is disclosed to a health care provider for emergency treatment, we will request that such health care provider not further use or disclose the information. In addition, you and/or R+ may terminate the restriction if the other party is notified in writing of the termination. Unless you agree, the termination of the restriction is only effective with respect to PHI created or received after you have been informed of the termination.

    You have the right to request that we communicate with you about medical matters in a certain way or at a certain location. For example, you may request that we only contact you at work or by mail. We will not ask you the reason for your request. We will accommodate all reasonable requests. Your written request must specify how or where you wish to be contacted.

    You have the right to a paper copy of this Notice. You may ask us to give you a copy of this notice at any time.

    You may obtain a copy of this Notice at our website:
