Very.Health, P.C. and associated professional entities (“VERY”) are committed to obtaining, maintaining, using, and disclosing your protected health information (“PHI”) in a manner that protects your privacy. We urge you to read this Notice of Privacy Practices (this “Notice”) carefully in order to understand both our commitment to the privacy of your PHI and your rights.

VERY is required by law to maintain the privacy of your PHI and to provide you with a notice of our legal duties and privacy practices with respect to PHI. PHI is information about you, including basic demographic information, that may identify you and that relates to your past, present or future physical or mental health condition, treatment, or payment for health services. This Notice describes how we may use and disclose your PHI to carry out treatment, payment, or health care operations, and for other specified purposes that are permitted or required by law. The Notice also describes your rights with respect to your PHI.

VERY reserves the right to amend this Notice from time to time. When material changes are made, VERY will promptly post the updated Notice on the Site at and provide a copy to you at your request.

Uses and Disclosures of Your Information

VERY may use or disclose your PHI for the following purposes:

  • Treatment. VERY may use or disclose your PHI for purposes of providing your treatment. For example, we may disclose your PHI to your primary care physician if needed to coordinate your medical care.
  • Payment. VERY may use or disclose your PHI for purposes of billing and collecting payment for our services. For example, we may disclose your PHI to your health plan to obtain payment for our services.
  • Healthcare Operations. VERY may use or disclose your PHI to facilitate our healthcare operations. For example, we may review your PHI internally as part of an audit to confirm the quality of services being delivered to our patients.
  • As Required by Law. VERY may use or disclose your PHI if required to do so by federal or state law.
  • Disclosures to your Representative and/or Individuals Involved in Your Care. VERY may disclose your PHI to your family members who are involved in your care, including those who are responsible for paying for your care. VERY may also disclose your PHI to your personal representative, as established under applicable law to an administrator or authorized individual associated with your estate.
  • Disclosures to Business Associates. VERY may disclose your PHI to certain of our service providers that have agreed to maintain the privacy and security thereof. For example, we may disclose your PHI to Virtual Eating Recovery, Inc., which provides administrative support services to Very.
  • De-Identification of PHI. VERY may de-identify your PHI, meaning that VERY would remove all identifying features as determined by law to make it extremely unlikely that the information could identify you. De-identified information no longer qualifies as PHI, meaning that VERY may use and disclose it for purposes not set forth in this Notice.


VERY may also use or disclose your PHI in other ways as permitted by law. Generally, these are ways that serve the public health and/or research. Specifically:

  • VERY may use or disclose your PHI as needed to assist with public health and safety issues and may disclose your PHI to law enforcement officials when needed, to health oversight agencies for authorized activities and for special government functions including national security needs.
  • VERY may disclose your PHI as needed to organ procurement organizations, medical examiners, and funeral directors in the event of an individual’s death.
  • VERY may use or disclose your PHI to address workers’ compensation claims.
  • VERY may use or disclose your PHI in response to a court or administrative order, or in response to a subpoena.


Uses and disclosures of PHI for purposes other than those described above, including for marketing purposes and disclosures that would constitute the sale of PHI, will not be made in the absence of a written authorization signed by you or your personal representative. Once you sign an authorization, you may revoke it by contacting VERY at However, any use or disclosure of your PHI already taken in reliance on your authorization prior to your revocation cannot be reversed.

Your Rights Regarding Your PHI

You have the following rights with respect to your PHI:

  • You have the right to request restrictions on certain uses and disclosures of your PHI. VERY will consider every request to restrict uses or disclosures of your PHI and will strive to honor those that are reasonable. However, VERY is not legally required to honor each request unless the requested restriction involves a disclosure not required by law to a health plan for purposes of payment or health care operations, and you have paid for the applicable services in full, out of pocket. With respect to any requested restriction, if VERY agrees to honor it, we will document such restriction and continue to abide by it.
  • You have the right to receive confidential communications of your PHI from VERY. Specifically, you may request that VERY communicate with you about your PHI using a specific means, phone number or address. VERY will accommodate reasonable requests regarding confidential communications of your PHI.
  • Subject to applicable state law, you have the right to inspect and copy your PHI. You also have the right to access and receive your PHI electronically if readily producible in such format.
  • You have the right to correct or update your PHI. If you believe that there is an error in your PHI, you may request that VERY update it as appropriate.
  • You have the right to receive an accounting of certain disclosures of your PHI made by VERY. Upon receipt of such request, VERY will provide you with a list of disclosures made by VERY in the prior six (6) years, not including certain types of disclosures such as, by way of example only, those made directly to you or pursuant to your written authorization.
  • You have the right to obtain a paper copy of this Notice upon request.
