Seneca Cayuga ARC is committed to preserving the privacy of the personal health information (PHI) of every individual who receives our services.
The persons we serve have important rights that relate to inspecting and copying the medical information we maintain. They can amend or correct PHI; receive an accounting of our disclosures of PHI; request confidential communication regarding PHI; ask that we restrict certain uses or disclosures of PHI; and pursue a complaint if it appears we have violated their privacy rights.
The complete notice or a summary notice can be downloaded at the links below.
Our Notice of Privacy Practices fully explains the rights of the persons we serve and our obligations under the law. Although we may revise our Notice from time to time, any revision will apply to all records that we have created or maintained in the past, and to any records that we may create or maintain in the future.
The federal HIPAA Privacy Notice does not change the way persons receive services from Seneca Cayuga ARC, or the privacy rights protected under NYS Mental Hygiene Law. It adds some details about how persons can exercise their rights.
For questions, concerns, or complaints about PHI-related matters, please contact our Privacy Officer at (315) 539-5067.
