Records Release

Federal and state laws allow us to use and share your health information for treatment and health care reasons without your approval. State law requires us to get your approval to give this information to your insurance company so they can pay your bill. We will not give out your health information to others unless you tell us to do so, or unless required by law. For more information, view our Notice of Privacy Practices.
