Notice of Privacy Practices

PrimeWest Health is required by law to keep our member’s health information private. This is a commitment we take seriously. PrimeWest Health’s Notice of Privacy Practices explains members’ rights. It also explains PrimeWest Health’s legal obligations regarding the privacy of members’ health information. We are required to do the following:

  • We must protect the privacy of health information, whether it is oral, written, or electronic
  • We must tell members how we protect their health information. PrimeWest Health has physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards designed to protect health information and to stop unauthorized access.
  • We must explain how, when, and why we use or disclose member health information
  • We must explain members’ rights related to their health information and how members may exercise them

Are you a PrimeWest Health member? If so, it may help you to know that PrimeWest Health has developed forms to help you. These forms tell you how to inspect, access, amend, disclose, or take other actions regarding your health information. Below are links to the forms. We have included a description of what each form is about.
