PATIENT RIGHTS

The Privacy Rule provides patients with new Federal privacy rights, including the right to request restrictions of uses and disclosures of PHI, and the right to access, amend, and receive an accounting of disclosures of PHI. See 45 CFR §§164.522, 164.524, 164.526,164.528.

1. Right to request a restriction of uses and disclosures
The Privacy Rule requires that programs allow patients to request that the program restrict uses or disclosures of PHI for the purpose of treatment, payment or health care operations and for involvement in the patient’s care and notification under 45 CFR §164.510(b). The program is not required to agree to a requested restriction. If, however, a program agrees to a restriction, the program may not then violate the agreed-upon restriction, except for emergency treatment purposes, so long as the program requests that the emergency treatment provider not further use or disclose the PHI. A covered entity may terminate the agreement to a restriction, effective after the patient has been informed of the termination. See 45 CFR §164.522(a).

The Privacy Rule gives the individual the right to request that communication of PHI be done by alternative means or to alternative locations (confidential communications). See 45 CFR §164.522(b)(1)(i). This might include the right to request that mail and telephone calls be limited to home or office location. The Privacy Rule requires programs to accommodate reasonable requests.

2. Right to access PHI
Neither Part 2 nor the Privacy Rule requires programs to obtain written consent from individuals before permitting them to see their own records. Likewise, neither rule prohibits a program from giving a patient access to his or her own records, including the opportunity to inspect and copy any records that the program maintains about the patient. 42 CFR §2.23. However, the Privacy Rule permits programs to require that such requests be in writing. See 45 CFR §164.524(b)(1). The Privacy Rule provides patients with a right of access to inspect and obtain a copy of their PHI. See 45 CFR §164.524(a)(1).
