If you are denied access to health care information, you may request that the denial be reviewed by another health care professional chosen by someone on our health care team. We will abide by the outcome of that review. There is a fee for this service.
  • Request an amendment to your health record. We may deny your request for an amendment if it is not in writing or does not include a reason to support the request. Also, we may deny your request if the information was not created by our health care team, is not part of the information kept by our facility, is not part of the information which you would be permitted to inspect and copy, and if the information is accurate and complete. Please note that even if we accept your request, we are not required to delete any information from your health care record.

  • Request communication of your health information by alternative means or locations. Your request must be in writing, and NeuroPsych Program may deny your request if it is not practical.
  • Provide the hospital with a signed authorization. This document will be used to disclose your health care information for other reasons besides treatment and payment.
