HOW WE MAY USE AND DISCLOSE HEALTH INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
Electronic Exchange of Your Health Information
In some instances, we may transfer health information about you electronically to other health care providers who are providing you treatment or to the insurance plan providing payment for your treatment. Your health information may also be made available through the Vermont Health Information Exchange (“VHIE”). The VHIE is operated by Vermont Information Technology Leaders (VITL) and your treating health care providers and others, as permitted by State and federal law, including public health authorities, may have access to your health information through the VHIE unless you have chosen to opt-out and are not in need of emergency treatment. For information about the VHIE, see www.vitl.net.
