3. HOW WE COMPLY WITH HIPPA AND PROTECT YOUR PHI.
THIS NOTICE DESCRIBES HOW MEDICAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED AND DISCLOSED AND HOW YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION. PLEASE REVIEW IT CAREFULLY.
Under a federal law called the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), some of your Personal Information, such as demographic, health and/or health-related information that we collect as part of providing the Services, may be considered “protected health information” or “PHI.” Specifically, when we receive identifiable information about you, such as identifiable health information, including without limitation, information about your past, present, or future physical or mental health condition, the name and license number of your recommending physician, contact information of that physician, the method to verify the recommendations authenticity, the expiration date of the recommendation, and the details of orders placed through the website is considered PHI. Further, a healthcare provider’s medical data is considered PHI and includes information provided by doctors or other healthcare specialists, professionals, or providers (collectively, “Healthcare Providers”) you have visited, the reasons for your visit, the dates of your visit, your medical history, and other medical and health information you choose to share with us.
HIPAA provides specific protections for the privacy and security of PHI and restricts how PHI is used and disclosed. We may only use and disclose your PHI in the ways permitted by you and your Healthcare Providers and such permission may be revoked at any time.
The following describes the circumstances in which we may use or disclose your PHI:
• Treatment, Payment and Healthcare Operations. We are permitted to use and disclose your PHI for purposes of treatment, payment and healthcare operations. For example: • Treatment. We may disclose your PHI to another physician or healthcare provider for purposes of a visit or in connection with the provision of follow-up treatment. • Payment. We may use and disclose your PHI to our delivery agents to collect payment upon delivery. In the event that medicinal cannabis becomes a medication covered by your health insurer or health plan, we may one day use and disclose your PHI in connection with the processing and payment of claims and other charges. • Healthcare Operations. We may use and disclose your PHI in connection with our healthcare operations, such as providing customer services, storing your purchase and delivery history, and conducting quality review assessments. We may engage third parties to provide various services for us. If any such third party must have access to your PHI in order to perform its services, we will require the third party enter into an agreement that binds the third party to the use and disclosure restrictions outlined in this Policy. • Authorization. We are permitted to use and disclose your PHI upon your written authorization, to the extent such use or disclosure is consistent with your authorization. You may revoke any such authorization at any time. • As Required by Law. We may use and disclose your PHI to the extent required by law. • Verification. We may use your medical cannabis identification number entered on our Site or provided in our dispensary locations, and stored on our servers, to perform patient pre-verification checks, identification check, quantity and other eligibility-related verification, or collection, recordation, and/or transmission of information for recordkeeping and/or entry into the medical marijuana electronic verification system; • Dispatch. If you elect to use our delivery service, our licensed dispensary agents will, upon delivery, require and verify your medicinal cannabis identification number for all cannabis products ordered via the Site. • Research and Marketing. We may under certain circumstances, use or disclose PHI that is necessary for research or marketing purposes. Such disclosure will deidentify you from your PHI.
You have the following rights regarding the PHI maintained by us:
• Confidential Communication. You have the right to receive confidential communications of your PHI. You may request that we communicate with you through alternate means or at an alternate location, and we will accommodate your reasonable requests. You must submit your request in writing. • Restrictions. You have the right to request restrictions on certain uses and disclosures of PHI for treatment, payment, or healthcare operations. You also have the right to request that we restrict its disclosures of PHI to only certain individuals involved in your care or the payment of your care. You must submit your request in writing. We are not required to comply with your request. • Inspection and Copies. You have the right to obtain a paper copy of this Policy from us at any time upon request. We may charge a fee for the costs of copying, mailing, or other supplies associated with your request. To obtain a paper copy of this notice, please contact the Company by calling (480) 219-1400. We may deny your request to inspect and/or copy your PHI in certain limited circumstances. If that occurs, we will inform you of the reason for the denial, and you may request a review of the denial. • Amendment. If you feel that medical information we have about you is incorrect or incomplete, you may ask us to amend the information. You must provide a reason that supports your request. We may deny your request if: (i) it is not in writing or does not include a reason to support your request; (ii) information is not part of the medical information stored by us; (iii) the information was not created by us; (iv) information is not part of the information you are permitted to inspect and copy; or (v) the information is complete and accurate. • Breach Notification. You have the right to be notified in the event that the Company (or one of our business associate) discovers a breach of unsecured PHI. • Accounting of Disclosures. You have a right to receive an accounting of all disclosures we have made of your PHI. However, that right does not include disclosures made for treatment, payment or healthcare operations, disclosures made to you about your treatment, disclosures made pursuant to an authorization, and certain other disclosures. You must submit your request in writing and you must specify the time period involved (which must be for a period of time less than six years from the date of the disclosure). Your first accounting will be free of charge. However, we may charge you for the costs involved in fulfilling any additional request made within a period of 12 months. • Complaints.
