The confidentiality of alcohol and drug abuse client records as well as all personal health information (PHI) maintained by Lantana Recovery is protected by Federal LawsandRegulations. Generally, the program may not say to a person outside the program that a person attends the program, or disclose any information identifying a client as an alcohol or drug user unless:
- The client consents in writing;
- The disclosure is allowed by a court order; or
- The disclosure is made to medical personnel in a medical emergency or to qualified personnel for research, audit or program evaluation.
Violations of the Federal Law and Regulations by a program is a crime. Suspected violations may be reported to appropriate authorities in accordance with Federal Regulations.
Federal Laws and Regulations do not protect any information about a crime committed by a client either at the program or against any person who works for the program or about any threat to commit such a crime.
Federal Laws and Regulations do not protect any information about suspected child abuse or neglect from being reported under State Law to appropriate State or Local authorities.
Lantana Recovery is required to communicate to each client that Federal Laws and Regulations protect the confidentiality of alcohol and drug abuse records. A summary of the law and regulations must be given to each client.

 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), 45 CFR, parts 160 and 164; Confidentiality of Drug and Alcohol Patient Records, 42 CFR, part 2.
Information regarding your health care, including payment for health care, is protected by two federal laws: the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1320d et seq., 45 C.F.R. Parts 160 and 164, and the Confidentiality Law, 42 U.S.C. Sec. 290 dd-2, 42 C.F.R. Part 2. Under these laws, Lantana Recovery may not say to a person outside Lantana Recovery that you attend the program, nor may Lantana Recovery disclose any information identifying you as an alcohol or drug abuser, or disclose any other protected information except as permitted by federal law.
Lantana Recovery must obtain your written consent before it can disclose information about you for payment purposes. For example, Lantana Recovery may obtain your written consent before it can disclose information to your health insurer in order to be paid for services. Generally, you must also sign a written consent before Lantana Recovery can share information for treatment purposes or for your health care operations. However, federal law permits Lantana Recovery to disclose information without your written consent:
Pursuant to an agreement with a qualified service organization/business associate;
To report a crime committed on Lantana Recovery premises or against Lantana Recovery’s personnel;
To medical personnel in a medical emergency;
To appropriate authorities to report suspected child abuse or neglect;
As allowed by court order.

Lantana Recovery is not required to agree to any restrictions you request, but if it does agree then it is bound by that agreement and may not use or disclose any information which you have restricted except as necessary in a medical emergency.
Under HIPAA you have the right to inspect and copy your own health information obtained by Lantana Recovery except to the extent that the information contains psychotherapy notes or information compiled for use in a civil, criminal, administrative proceeding or in other limited circumstances.
Under HIPAA you also have the right, with some exceptions, to amend health care information maintained in Lantana Recovery’s records, and to request and receive and accounting of disclosures of your health related information made by Lantana Recovery during the six years prior to your request. You also have the right to receive a paper copy of this notice.
