Health Information Shared Without Your Consent

Your provider is allowed to share your information for certain reasons without asking you first, like when your doctors work together to determine how to best treat you when you're sick.

Did you know? 
You can get a report that tells you who has seen your health record with "an accounting of disclosures."  The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) also gives you the right to request that your information not be shared with certain people or organizations. Whether your health information is stored on paper or electronically, you have the right to keep it private.

"Most adults acquire hearing loss gradually over time. Thus, many people with a significant hearing loss avoid getting help because they do not realize they have a problem." —  American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA)

Achieve Hearing & Rehabilitation understands that your health information is personal. We are committed to protecting this information. We create a record of the care and services you receive. We need this record to provide you with quality care and to comply with legal requirements.

Achieve Hearing & Rehabilitation (AHR) is located in Plano, Texas and establishes individualized relationships with patients. AHR can employ a state-of-the-art hearing aid and auditory testing to provide you the best method of treatment for your hearing problems.  To speak to an audiologist please call 972-608-0416 today.
