PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION
When you use our website or services, we may collect, use, and share certain individually identifiable health information about you that is protected under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). This information is known as “protected health information” (PHI) and includes information relating to your past, present or future physical or mental health or condition, the provision of health care to you, or the past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care to you. Examples of documents that may contain PHI include laboratory test orders, test results and invoices.
Those who must comply with HIPAA are often called “covered entities.” Although Testing Solutions is not a covered entity under HIPAA, we may perform certain functions and activities on behalf of covered entities, such as the provision of management and administrative services. When we handle your PHI, we may do so as a “business associate” of a covered entity. When we act as a business associate, we may be subject to certain laws and regulations, including certain HIPAA rules, that govern the use and disclosure of PHI. To the extent we are subject to any such rules and regulations, we are committed to complying with them in order to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your PHI.
By using our website or services, you authorize us to disclose your PHI as follows:
- To laboratories for the purposes of facilitating COVID-19 testing;
- To authorized healthcare professionals who order tests or need access to your protected health information for treatment purposes;
- To entities such as health plans, insurance companies, and government agencies for the purposes of billing and payment (if you are insured under another person’s health insurance policy, we may also send invoices to the subscriber whose policy covers your health services);
- To companies and individuals that need it to provide services to us, such as billing, collections, courier, or record storage services;
- To a family member, friend, caregiver or other individual involved in your healthcare or payment for your healthcare, if you do not object or if in our professional judgment we believe that you do not object;
- As required by law.
In addition, if your COVID-19 test was arranged for by an employer or another organization, you authorize us to disclose your PHI to any such employer or organization.
If you revoke your authorization, we will no longer use or disclose your PHI except to the extent we have already taken action based on your authorization.

BY USING OUR WEBSITE OR SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO HOLD HARMLESS TESTING SOLUTIONS AND ALL PERSONS WITH WHOM WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION FROM ALL LIABILITY AND CLAIM FOR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF ANY ACCESS, USE, DISCLOSURE, ALTERATION, OR DESTRUCTION OF YOUR PERSONAL OR PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION, WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DAMAGES WERE CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE OF TESTING SOLUTIONS; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT THE FOREGOING SHALL NOT APPLY TO DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE BAD FAITH OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OF THE TESTING SOLUTIONS OR THE PERSONS WITH WHOM WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION.
