NOTICE UNDER The Texas Health and Safety Code § 181.154 – HB 300:
Our law firm gathers, stores and electronically transmits medical records (Protected Health Information – “PHI”), and our clients’ PHI is subject to electronic disclosure. Texas and Federal Law prohibits any electronic disclosure of a client’s PHI to any person without a separate authorization from the client for each disclosure. This authorization for disclosure may be made in written or electronic form, or in oral form if it is documented in writing by our law firm.
The authorization for electronic disclosure of PHI described above is not required if the disclosure is made: to another covered entity, as that term is defined by § 181.001, or to a covered entity, as that term is defined by § 602.001, Ins. Code, for the purpose of: treatment; payment; health care operations; performing an insurance or health maintenance organization function described by § 602.053, Ins. Code; or as otherwise authorized or required by state or federal law. Therefore, no further release is necessary for electronic disclosure to other health care providers, insurance companies, governmental agencies, or defense lawyers representing adverse parties.
