You or your doctor indicated that your primary sleep difficulty is insomnia. Our treatment approach for insomnia reflects the National Institutes of Health treatment consensus for insomnia and emphasizes initial non-medication, treatment approaches. Your initial appointment is scheduled with one of our insomnia specialists (Ph.D/Psy.D), specializing in, or certified in behavioral sleep medicine. The specialist will conduct a thorough evaluation of factors that contribute to your sleep difficulty. As part of the evaluation, you will be assessed for other sleep disorders that may occur with insomnia. Following the evaluation, you should have an improved understanding of your sleep difficulties, as well as an integrated treatment plan. If you are already on medications or would like medications, options that involve medication may be included as part of the treatment. If your physician also ordered a sleep study, the specialist will discuss the study with you should it still be necessary after your consultation. If you have any questions or concerns about the materials, or to contact Center scheduling staff, please call 708-364-0261 ext. 1.

THIS NOTICE DESCRIBES HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED AND DISCLOSED
AND HOW YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION. IT FURTHER DETAILS HOW
YOU OR YOUR PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE MAY GAIN ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION.
PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY.
If you have any questions about this Notice please contact our privacy contact, Shilo Velez (”Privacy Contact”), at (708) 364-0261.
This Notice describes how our practice and our health care professionals, employees, volunteers, trainees and staff may use and
disclose your medical information to carry out treatment, payment or health care operations and for other purposes that are described
in this Notice. We understand that medical information about you and your health is personal and we are committed to protecting
medical information about you. This Notice applies to all records of your care generated by this practice.
This Notice also describes your right to access and control your medical information. This information about you includes
demographic information that may identify you and that relates to your past, present and future physical or mental health or condition
and related health care services. Typically your medical information will include symptoms, examination and test results, diagnoses,
treatment and a plan for future care or treatment.
We are required by law to protect the privacy of your medical information and to follow the terms of this Notice. We may change the
terms of this Notice at any time. The new Notice will then be effective for all medical information that we maintain at that time and
thereafter. We will provide you with any revised Notice if you request a revised copy be sent to you in the mail or if you ask for one
when you are in the office. I. Uses and Disclosures of Protected Health Information.
Your medical information may be used and disclosed for purposes of treatment, payment and health care operations. The following
are examples of different ways we use and disclose medical information. These are examples only.
We may use and disclose medical information about you to provide, coordinate, or manage your medical treatment or any related services. This includes the coordination or management of your health care with a third party that has already obtained your permission to have access to your medical information. For example, we could disclose your medical information to a home health agency that provides care to you. We may also disclose medical information to other physicians who may be treating you, such as a physician to whom you have been referred to ensure that the physician has the necessary information to diagnose or treat you. In addition, we may disclose your medical information to another physician or health care provider, such as a laboratory.
We may use and disclose medical information about you to obtain payment for the treatment and services you receive from us. For example, we may need to provide your health insurance plan information about your treatment plan so that they can make a determination of eligibility or to obtain prior approval for planned treatment. For example, obtaining approval for a hospital stay may require that relevant medical information be disclosed to the health plan to obtain approval for the hospital admission.
We may use or disclose medical information about you in order to support the business activities of our practice. These activities include, but are not limited to, reviewing our treatment of you, employee performance reviews, training of medical students, licensing, marketing and fundraising activities and conducting or arranging for other business activities.
For example, we may use a sign-in sheet at the registration desk where you will be asked to sign your name and indicate your physician. We may also call you by name in the waiting room when your physician is ready to see you. We may use or disclose your medical information to remind you of your next appointment.
We may share your medical information with third party “business associates” that perform activities on our behalf, such as billing or transcription for the practice. Whenever an arrangement between our office and a business associate involves the
use or disclosure of your medical information, we will have a written contract that contains terms that asks the “business associate” to protect the privacy of your medical information.
We may use or disclose your medical information to provide you with information about treatment alternatives or other
health-related benefits and services that may be of interest to you. We may also use and disclose your medical information
for other marketing activities. For example, your name and address may be used to send you a newsletter about our practice
and the services we offer. We may also send you information about products or services that we believe may be beneficial to
you. You may contact our Privacy Contact
to request that these materials not be sent to you.
We may use or disclose your demographic information and the dates that you received treatment from your physician, as
necessary, in order to contact you for fundraising activities supported by our office. If you do not want to receive these
materials, please contact our Privacy Contact
to request that these fundraising materials not be sent to you.

E-PRESCRIBING CONSENT FORM
ePrescribing is defined as a physician's ability to electronically send an accurate,
error free, and understandable prescription directly to a pharmacy from the point
of care. Congress has determined that the ability to electronically send
prescriptions is an important element in improving the quality of patient care.
ePrescribing greatly reduces medication errors and enhances patient safety. The
Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) of 2003 listed standards that have to be
included in an ePrescribe program. These include:
• Formulary and benefit transactions
— Gives the prescriber information
about which drugs are covered by the drug benefit plan.
• Medication history transactions
- Provides the physician with
information about medications the patient is already taking to minimize the number of adverse drug events.
• Fill status notification
- Allows the prescriber to receive an electronic
notice from the pharmacy telling them if the patient's prescription has been picked up, not picked up, or partially filled.
By signing this consent form you are agreeing that Associates in Sleep Medicine/The Center for Sleep Medicine can request and use your prescription medication history from other healthcare providers and/or third party pharmacy benefit payors for treatment purposes.
