Notice of Privacy Practices

Last Modified April 23, 2024

This Notice of Privacy Practices (“Notice”) applies to Inocras Inc. and its affiliates (collectively referred to
as “Inocras,” “our,” “us,” or “we” in this Notice). Inocras collects and uses protected health information
("PHI") about you, which is essential for conducting the laboratory testing services ("Services").
We are required by law to maintain the privacy of your PHI, to notify you of our legal duties and privacy
practices with respect to your health information, and to notify affected individuals following a breach of
unsecured health information. This Notice summarizes our duties and your rights concerning your
information. Our duties and your rights are set forth more fully in 45 CFR Part 164. We are required to
abide by the terms of our Notice that is currently in effect.
If you have any questions about anything in this Notice, please contact our privacy officer at inquiry@
Your Rights
You have the following rights concerning your PHI. To exercise any of these rights, you must
submit a written request to the privacy officer identified at the end of this Notice.
1. Limitation of PHI Use or Sharing: You may request additional restrictions on the use or disclosure of
information for treatment, payment or healthcare operations. We are not required to agree to the
requested restriction except in the limited situation in which you or someone on your behalf pays for an
item or service, and you request that information concerning such item or service not be disclosed to a
health insurer.
2. Confidential Communication: You can ask us to contact you using specific and confidential means,
such as your home or office phone, or to send mail to a different address. This request must be in writing,
and we will reasonably fulfill it. However, we may need to verify your identity before implementing the
requested contact method or address.
3. Inspection and Copy of PHI: You have the right to obtain an electronic or paper copy of your PHI. We
may charge a reasonable, cost-based fee for providing these copies. There might be certain cases where
access to specific information could be denied, e.g., if we determine that disclosure may result in harm to
you or others.
4. Correction of PHI: If you believe that your PHI is incorrect or incomplete, you can request that we
correct it by submitting such a request in writing. We will consider your request; however, we may deny
your request for certain reasons, e.g., if we did not create the record or if we determine that the record is
accurate and complete.
5. Accounting of PHI Disclosures: You may receive an accounting of certain disclosures we have made
of your PHI. You may receive the first accounting within a 12-month period free of charge. We may
charge a reasonable cost-based fee for all subsequent requests during that 12-month period.
6. Paper Copy of Notice: You can request a paper copy of this Notice at any time, even if you have
previously agreed to receive it electronically.
