Why This Notice Is Necessary

FCL/StarDent is required by law to maintain the privacy of Protected Health Information ("PHI") and to provide individuals with notice of FCL/StarDent's legal duties and privacy practices with respect to PHI. PHI includes information that can be used to identify you and has been created or received about your past, present or future health or condition, the provision of health care to you, or the payment for this health care.

This notice explains our privacy practices that are applicable to you, a valued member of FCL/StarDent. We appreciate the confidence and trust that you have bestowed upon us. Your privacy is very important to us, and we take this duty seriously.

FCL/StarDent is required to follow the privacy practices that are described in this notice. However, we reserve the right to change the terms of this notice and our privacy practices at any time. Any changes to our policies and procedures will apply to the PHI we already have in our possession. If we make a material change to our policies and procedures about your PHI, we will update this notice, post a new notice on our web site at Privacy Policy and, to the extent required by applicable law, promptly mail a notice of the changes to you.

FCL/StarDent's Need for Information to Provide Services

STARDENT/FCL acknowledges participants' privacy rights as specified in the Privacy Rule of the Administrative Simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, and has implemented policies and procedures to ensure these privacy rights are protected.
