California Medical Imaging is committed to protecting patients’ medical information.
Maintaining patient privacy is a part of our mission to serve the needs of the patient first.
This notice describes how your medical information may be used and disclosed as well
as how to get access to this information.
Background: The United States government created rules for the use and protection of
medical and health information. The rules are a result of the 1996 Health Insurance
Portability and Account- ability Act (HIPAA). They are meant to provide all patients with
standard privacy practices.
Commitment: At California Medical Imaging, our principle goal is to protect the privacy
of your Protected Health Information (PHI), as defined by the Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
California Medical Imaging reserves the right to change the terms of this notice of

situation of an unpaid bill your information may be submitted to a collection agency.
3. We may also use your information to help support and improve the quality of the care
that we provide at California Medical Imaging.
4. We may provide health information to proper authorities if we believe in good faith
that disclosing information will help prevent or lessen a serious threat to you.
5. We may comply with the laws related to Workers’ Compensation. These programs
may provide benefits for work-related injuries or illnesses.
Disclosures requiring your permission: Other uses and disclosures not described in
the previous section of this notice may be made only with your permission. We are
required to obtain your permission for the following purposes:
1. We would obtain your permission before using your health information for marketing

of health information.
3. We would obtain your permission for uses and disclosures of psychotherapy notes.
4. In circumstances that require your permission, you may withdraw such permission at
any time by notifying us in writing. If you withdraw your permission, we will no longer
use or disclose your health information for the purposes specified-unless we have
already taken action based on your permission.
Your Rights Regarding your “PHI”:
1. You have the right to ask us to communicate with you in a certain way or at a certain
location regarding your PHI. We will use our best efforts to accommodate all
reasonable requests as to where and how you wish to be contacted.
