11. HIPAA STATEMENT Your privacy is very important to us. In a medical emergency it may be necessary for us to disclose your protected health information to a third party (medical provider).
The NCBM/Baptists on Mission requires a HIPAA waiver from all persons 18 and older in order for us to release that individual's protected health information (PHI) to a third party. If legally required to do so or in a medical emergency, we will disclose such information.
I understand that I may revoke this Authorization at any time. This Authorization will remain in effect until revoked by the Applicant or upon termination of enrollment as a volunteer. To revoke Authorization, I must terminate my account on this site.
I authorize the release of my confidential protected health information. I understand that this authorization is voluntary, that the information to be disclosed is protected by law and the use/disclosure is to be made to conform to my directions. I understand that this protected information may be subject to re-disclosure by a third party and hence no longer protected. I have read the contents of this Authorization and I confirm that the contents are consistent with my directions. I understand that by agreeing to these terms, I am authorizing the use and/or disclosure of my confidential protected health information.
12. ADULT PARTICIPANT LIABILITY RELEASE FORM Please read before agreeing to this, as this constitutes the agreement as a volunteer and the understanding of your working relationship as a volunteer with Baptists On Mission/N.C. Baptist Men/NCBM.
