I understand that I have a right to revoke this authorization at any time, except to the extent that release of information has already occurred in reliance on my prior authorization. I understand that in order to revoke an authorization, a written document stating the intent of the patient is to be either delivered in person or by certified mail to the Director of Health Information Management at Behavior, Attention, and Developmental Disabilities Consultants, LLC. The revocation document is to contain the signature of the patient or patient's legal representative.
I understand that authorizing the disclosure of health information is voluntary. I can refuse to sign this authorization. Refusal to sign this form will not affect my receipt of treatment. However, if this authorization is for release of records to a third party for payment, enrollment or eligibility of benefits purposes, such as workers' compensation, private health insurance, application for insurance, etc., my refusal to sign may affect payment, enrollment or eligibility for benefits. This, in turn, may affect payment for services I receive and I may become responsible for all charges incurred.
I understand that it is my responsibility to inquire with the party requesting my health records regarding the effect of my refusal to sign this form. I understand that any disclosure carries with it the potential for re-disclosure by the recipient of the information and such re-disclosure may not be protected by federal confidentiality laws.
When Behavior, Attention, and Developmental Disabilities Consultants, LLC seeks an authorization for its own use or disclosure of protected health information (e.g., marketing, research, etc.) a copy of the authorization is provided to the patient.
