NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES

THIS NOTICE DESCRIBED HOW MEDICAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED AND DISCLOSED AND HOW YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION. PLEASE REVIEW IT CAREFULLY.

WHO WE ARE

This Notice describes the privacy practices of Paladin Medical Transport, Inc., our employed nurses, paramedics and EMTs, and other personnel (collectively, herein “we” or “us”). It applies to services furnished to you at any Paladin Medical Transport, Inc. facility.

OUR PRIVACY OBLIGATIONS

We are required by law to maintain the privacy of your health information (“Protected Health Information” or “PHI”) and to provide you with this Notice of our legal duties and privacy practices with respect to your PHI. When we use or disclose your PHI, we are required to abide by the terms of this Notice, which may be amended from time to time. In all cases where we may share your medical information with others, we share only the minimum necessary amount of information required to satisfy the need or request.

PERMISSIBLE USES and DISCLOSURES WITHOUT YOUR WRITTEN AUTHORIZATION

In certain situations, which we will describe below, we must obtain your written authorization in order to use and/or disclose your PHI. However, we do not need any type of authorization from you for the following uses and disclosures:

Ø Uses and Disclosures For Treatment, Payment and Health Care Operations. We may use and disclose PHI in order to treat you, obtain payment for services provided to you and conduct our “health care operations” as detailed below:

o Treatment. We use and disclose your PHI to provide treatment and other services to you - for example, to diagnose and treat your injury and illness. In addition, we may contact you to provide appointment reminders or information about treatment alternatives or other health-related benefits and services that may be of interest to you. We may also disclose PHI to your physician and other providers involved in your treatment.

o Payment. We may use and disclose your PHI to obtain payment for services that we provide to you - for example, disclosures to claim and obtain payment from your health insurer, HMO, or other company that arranges or pays the cost of some or all of your health care to verify that your health plan will pay for the health care. We may also share insurance information with other medical providers (such as Emergency Department physicians, pathologists, radiologists, etc.) who provided you care but are independent contractors and, therefore, not employed by us.

o Health Care Operations. We may use and disclose your PHI for our health care operations, which include internal administration and planning and various activities that improve the quality and cost effectiveness of the care that we deliver to you. For example, we may use PHI to evaluate the quality and competence of our staff and other health care workers. We may also disclose information to doctors, nurses, technicians, medical, nursing and other students, interns and residents, volunteers, and other personnel for teaching purposes. We may disclose PHI to our patient representatives in order to resolve any complaints you may have and ensure that you have been well treated by us.

We may also disclose PHI to another health care facility or home health provider to which you have been transferred, which such PHI is required for them to treat you, receive payment for services they render to you, or conduct certain health care operations, such as quality assessment and improvement activities, reviewing the quality and competence of health care professionals, or for health care fraud and abuse detection or compliance.

Ø Use or Disclosure for Directory of Individuals. As we are not an inpatient facility, we do not maintain a patient directory. Thus, we will not use or disclose your PHI for use in a directory.
