Right to Request Restrictions on Uses and Disclosures of PHI

The patient can request that UNC HCS restrict how PHI is used or shared to carry out Treatment, Payment, or Healthcare Operations (TPO.)

We are not required to agree to the restrictions they request. However, even if we agree to their request in certain situations, i.e., emergency treatment, it may not be followed.

If a patient asks for restrictions, contact your Privacy Officer.
