Enabled Health HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices

Last Updated: 5/18/2023



This HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices (“Notice”) describes how Enabled Health PLLC and its affiliates (“Enabled Health,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) may use and disclose your protected health information (“PHI”) when it acts as a covered entity under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and how you can get access to this PHI. Please review this Notice carefully. 

Supplemental Notices. Enabled Health may provide additional privacy notices to individuals at the time we collect their PHI. These additional privacy notices may supplement this Notice or may apply in lieu of this Notice.

Changes to our Notice. We can change the terms of this Notice, and the changes will apply to all PHI we have about you. The new Notice will be available upon request, in our office, and on our website.


Enabled Health uses and discloses PHI in a number of ways connected to your treatment, payment for your care, and our healthcare operations. Some examples of how we may use or disclose your PHI without your authorization are listed below.

  • A. Treatment

We may collect your PHI through a number of ways, including via in-person visits, virtual visits, or if you choose to monitor your vitals with the home monitoring equipment we provide to you. We can use your PHI to treat you and share it with other professionals who are treating you. For example, if a doctor treating you asks another doctor about your overall health condition. 

  • B. Payment

We can use and share your PHI to bill and collect payment from health plans or other entities. For example, if we bill your health insurance, we give PHI about you to your health insurance plan so it will pay for your services.

  • C. Healthcare Operations

We can use and share your PHI to administer and support our business activities or those of other healthcare organizations (as allowed by law), including providers and plans. For example (and without limitation), we may use your PHI to conduct quality analysis, for data aggregation, to review and improve our services and the care you receive, and to provide training.

  • D. Other Uses and Disclosures

We may use or disclose your PHI without your authorization for legal and/or governmental purposes in the following circumstances:

  • As Required by Law: When we are required by laws, including workers' compensation laws.
  • Public Health and Safety: To an authorized public health authority or individual to:
  • Protect public health and safety.
  • Prevent or control disease, injury, or disability.
  • Report vital statistics such as births or deaths.
  • Investigate or track problems with prescription drugs and medical devices.
  • Abuse or Neglect: To government entities authorized to receive reports regarding abuse, neglect, or domestic violence.
  • Minors: In general, parents and legal guardians are legal representatives of minor patients. However, in certain circumstances, as dictated by state law, minors can act on their own behalf and consent to their own treatment. In general, we will share the PHI of a patient who is a minor with the minor’s parents or guardians, unless the minor could have consented to the care themselves (except where parental disclosure may be required per applicable law).
  • Oversight Agencies: To health oversight agencies for certain activities such as audits, examinations, investigations, inspections, and licensures.
  • Legal Proceedings: In the course of any legal proceeding or in response to an order of a court or administrative agency and in response to a subpoena, discovery request, or other lawful process.
  • Law Enforcement: To law enforcement officials in certain circumstances for law enforcement purposes. By way of example and without limitation, disclosures may be made to identify or locate a suspect, witness, or missing person; to report a crime; or to provide information concerning victims of crimes.
  • Financial Information: We may ask you about income or other financial information to determine if you may qualify for a low-income waiver for services where applicable. We may use this information for operations, marketing, and administrative purposes and to improve our service offerings.
  • Research: We will not use your PHI to conduct research without your consent. We may use your PHI to determine your eligibility for research, including medical, clinical, and public health research, and/or to contact you to seek your consent to use or share your PHI for research. You will not be paid for this use.
  • Military Activity and National Security: To the military and to authorized federal officials for national security and intelligence purposes, to the Department of Veterans Affairs as required by military authorities, or in connection with providing protective services to the President of the United States.

We may also use or disclose your PHI without your authorization in the following miscellaneous circumstances:

  • Contacting You Directly: We may use your PHI, including your email address or phone number, to contact you. For example, we may also use this information to send you appointment reminders and other communications relating to your treatment, or let you know about treatment alternatives, research opportunities, or other health related services or benefits that may be of interest to you, via email, phone call, or text message.
  • Your Enabled Health Account: We may make certain PHI, such as information about treatment, appointment histories and medication records, accessible to you through online tools, such as email or your Enabled Health online account.
  • Your Portable Monitoring Equipment: If you choose to receive portable monitoring equipment (e.g., a mobile device such as an iPad) from us to monitor your vitals (such as your blood pressure or pulse), we may make such vitals and associated PHI collected through this equipment accessible to other pre-paired devices, health care providers, and caregivers to help deliver your care.  
  • Family and Friends: To a member of your family, a relative, a close friend—or any other person you identify who is directly involved in your healthcare—when you are either not present or unable to make a healthcare decision for yourself and we determine that disclosure is in your best interest. We will also assume that we may disclose PHI to any person you permit to be physically present with you as we discuss your PHI with you.
  • Services Description and Alternatives: To communicate with you about our services, options, or alternatives, as well as health-related benefits or services that may be of interest to you, or to describe our services to you.
  • De-identified and/or Aggregated Information: We may use your PHI to create de-identified and/or aggregated information, such as demographic information, information about health or wellness, or other analyses we create. De-identified and/or aggregated information is not PHI, and we may use and disclose such information in a number of ways, including research, internal analysis, analytics, publications, making de-identified and/or aggregated information available to third parties, and any other legally permissible purposes.
  • Coroners, Funeral Directors, and Organ Donation: To coroners, funeral directors, and organ donation organizations as authorized by law.
  • Disaster Relief: To an authorized public or private entity for disaster relief purposes. For example, we might disclose your PHI to help notify family members of your location or general condition.
  • Threat to Health or Safety: To avoid a serious threat to the health or safety of yourself and others.


Except in the situations listed in the sections above, we will use and disclose your PHI only with your written authorization. This means we will not use your PHI in the following cases, unless you give us written permission:

  • Community Partners: If you sign up for our services through one of our community partners, such as an assisted living facility, home care agency, or state agency, we may, with your authorization, disclose your PHI to the community partner(s) you are affiliated with. 
  • Referring Individuals: If a family member, relative, or close friend referred you to our services, we may, with your authorization, disclose your PHI to them. 
  • Marketing Purposes, except as allowed by HIPAA or applicable law (by way of example, marketing communications allowed by HIPAA without authorization include communications pertaining to care or treatment and/or our products or services.)
  • Sale of your PHI.
  • Most sharing of psychotherapy notes.

In some situations, federal and state laws provide special protections for specific kinds of PHI and require authorization from you before we can disclose that specially protected PHI. In these situations, we will comply with the more stringent state laws pertaining to such use or disclosure. If you have questions about these laws, please contact Enabled Health as set forth below.

For certain PHI, you can tell us your choices about what we share. If you have a clear preference for how we share your PHI in the situations described below, talk to us. Tell us what you want us to do, and we will aim to follow your instructions.

  • Share PHI with your family, close friends, or others involved in your care;
  • Share PHI in a disaster relief situation; and
  • Include your PHI in a hospital directory. 

If you are not able to tell us your preference, for example if you are unconscious, we may go ahead and share your PHI if we believe it is in your best interest. We may also share your PHI when needed to lessen a serious and imminent threat to health or safety.
