Right of Access
You have the right to review and request a copy of your protected health information that is kept by View Point Health. This includes the option to ask View Point Health to transfer a copy of the information to a person or healthcare provider of your choice. You are entitled to access your protected health information for as long as View Point Health or a business acting on their behalf maintains it. This right also extends to personal representatives of clients, who have the authority to make healthcare decisions on behalf of the individual.
Healthcare Power of Attorneys and Durable Power of Attorneys
View Point Health acknowledges the validity of Power of Attorney (POA) and Healthcare Power of Attorney (HPOA) documents. However, it is important that the POA document explicitly grants authority to act on behalf of the client in healthcare matters. As for HPOA, it is required to provide a letter from the patient’s primary care provider affirming that the patient is incapable of making decisions independently, in addition to the legal document.
Please note that a Power of Attorney (POA) or Healthcare Power of Attorney (HPOA) is no longer valid after a client is deceased.
