REQUIRED NOTICE UNDER TEXAS HEALTH AND SAFETY CODE, SECTION 181.154- HB 300

Because our law firm gathers, stores, and electronically transmits medical records ("PHI"), we are required to post a notice to clients that their PHI is subject to electronic disclosure.

Texas and federal law prohibit any electronic disclosure of a client's PHI to any person without a separate authorization from the client for each disclosure. The authorization for disclosure may be made in written or electronic form or in oral form if it is documented 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 Section 181.001 or Section 602.001 of the Insurance Code, or for the purpose of: treatment; payment; health care operations; performing an insurance of HMO function described by Section 620.053 of the Insurance Code; or as otherwise authorized or required by state or federal law. In other words, no further release is necessary for electronic disclosure to other health care providers, insurance companies, governmental agencies, or defense lawyers representing adverse parties.
