How We Protect Your PHI

L.A. Care is committed to protecting your PHI.

We keep the PHI of our current and former members private and secure as required by law, and accreditation standards.

We use physical and electronic safeguards, and our staff is regularly trained on the use, and sharing of PHI. Some of the ways we keep PHI safe include securing offices and locking desks, and filing cabinets, password protecting computers and electronic devices, and giving access only to the information that staff needs to do their job.

Where required by law, when our business partners work with us, they must also protect the privacy of any PHI we share with them and are not allowed to give PHI to others except as allowable by law, and this notice.

As required by law, we will let you know if there was a breach of your unsecured PHI. We will follow this notice, and will not use or share your information other than as described in this notice, or in compliance with State and Federal laws, or in accordance with your permission.
