Privacy and HIPAA

All testing is done with the privacy and confidentiality of the individual in mind.  Reporting of testing results is released only to requesting parties overseeing supervised treatment programs, or to those who have been expressly designated by the individual being tested.

The HIPAA Privacy Rule

(from the HHS website)

The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically.  The Rule requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of personal health information, and sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without patient authorization. The Rule also gives patients rights over their health information, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records, and to request corrections.

The Privacy Rule is located at 45 CFR Part 160 and Subparts A and E of Part 164.

We offer a wide range of testing options, from instant testing (urine), to lab testing (urine), to alternative drug and alcohol testing (breath and saliva).  We can test for individual drug usage as well as customized drug panels.  Contact us for specifics on pricing.

We also offer specimen pickup services within a specified mileage range, as well as billed shipping services for clients outside driving range.

Results are generally available in 48 hours and are sent by email to one or more destinations.

Our results will show whether or not the specimen is positive for any drugs for which it is being tested. We are available to explain any results to you by either email or phone during regular business hours.

At your discretion, any positive can be sent for confirmation at an additional charge.
