Illinois Domestic Violence Notice

Illinois Insurance Code section 335b provides important protections to victims of domestic violence. More

The law prohibits insurers from taking certain actions against an individual solely because he or she has been a victim of domestic violence. In addition, if an insurer receives a valid order of protection from an individual covered by an insurance policy against a policyholder, the insurer may not disclose the address and telephone number of the victim of domestic violence (or of any child residing with the victim) to the policyholder. An insurer also may not disclose to a policyholder the nature of any health care services provided, or the name, address, and telephone number of a person or entity providing such services to the victim.

In addition, insurers must accommodate a reasonable request by an insured who is a victim of domestic violence to receive communications of claim-related information by alternative means or at alternative locations if the person making the request clearly states that the disclosure of all or part of the information could endanger the person. If the insured person is a child, this request may be asserted by the child’s parent or guardian.

To make such a request, please contact us or send a copy of the valid order of protection to:

South Carolina DOI Memorandum – Proceeds to Divorced Beneficiaries

The South Carolina Department of Insurance issued a memorandum on March 22, 2016, to educate clients, producers, and brokers to ensure they are aware of the requirements of Section 62-2-507 and insure policyholder’s wishes are met after they are deceased. More

Section 62-2-507, provides that an order or decree for divorce or annulment revokes any prior disposition of property, beneficiary designation, inter alia, unless the life insurance policy, a court order, or a marital settlement contract expressly provides for the disposition of the property or for the former spouse to continue as the beneficiary of the policy. This is a proactive effort to ensure that the policyholder’s wishes are met after they are deceased.

To view the South Carolina Code 62-2-507 in its entirety please visit the South Carolina Legislature website at http://www.scstatehouse.gov/code/t62c002.php.

We may also disclose your protected health information in response to a subpoena, discovery request, or other lawful process by someone else involved in the dispute, but only if efforts have been made to tell you about the request or to obtain an order protecting the information requested.

Law Enforcement. We may disclose your protected health information if asked to do so by a law enforcement official if in response to a court order, subpoena, warrant, summons, or similar process.

Such other uses include, but may not be limited to, (1) most uses and disclosures of psychotherapy notes, (2) uses and disclosures of protected health information for marketing purposes, and (3) disclosures that constitute a sale of personal health information.

It will not be effective for any information that may have been used or disclosed in reliance upon the written authorization and prior to receiving your written revocation.

Your Rights

You have the following rights with respect to your protected health information:

Right to Inspect and Copy. You have the right to inspect and receive a paper or electronic copy of certain protected health information that may be used to make decisions about your health care benefits. To inspect and copy your protected health information, you must submit your request in writing to our HIPAA Privacy Officer. Your request should indicate in what format you want the records (paper or designated electronic format) and we will provide you with the information in that format, if it is readily producible in such format. If you request a copy of the information, we may charge a reasonable fee for the cost of copying, mailing, or other supplies associated with your request. You may also direct us to transmit your protected health information to another person, and we will do so, provided your signed, written direction clearly designates the recipient and location for delivery.

We may deny your request to inspect and copy in certain very limited circumstances. If you are denied access to your medical information, you may request that the denial be reviewed by submitting a written request to our HIPAA Privacy Officer.

Right to Amend. If you feel that the protected health information we have about you is incorrect or incomplete, you may ask us to amend the information. You have the right to request an amendment for as long as the information is kept by Assurity.

To request an amendment, your request must be made in writing and submitted to our HIPAA Privacy Officer. In addition, you must provide a reason that supports your request.

We may deny your request for an amendment if it is not in writing or does not include a reason to support the request. In addition, we may deny your request if you ask us to amend information that:

  • is not part of the medical information kept by Assurity;
  • was not created by us, unless the person or entity that created the information is no longer available to make the amendment;
  • is not part of the information that you would be permitted to inspect and copy; or
  • is already accurate and complete.

If we deny your request, you have the right to file a statement of disagreement with us and any future disclosures of the disputed information will include your statement.

Right to an Accounting of Disclosures. You have the right to request an “accounting” of certain disclosures of your protected health information. The accounting will not include disclosures for purposes of treatment, payment, or health care operations and certain other types of disclosures, for example, disclosures with your authorization or disclosures for national security purposes.

To request this list or accounting of disclosures, you must submit your request in writing to our HIPAA Privacy Officer. Your request must state a time period of not longer than six years and may not include dates before April 14, 2003. Your request should indicate in what form you want the list (for example, paper or electronic). The first list you request within a 12-month period will be provided free of charge. For additional lists, we may charge you for the costs of providing the list. We will notify you of the cost involved, and you may choose to withdraw or modify your request at that time before any costs are incurred.

Right to Notification of a Breach. We are required to provide, and you will receive, notification of any breach of your unsecured protected health information.

Right to Request Restrictions. You have the right to request a restriction or limitation on your protected health information that we use or disclose for treatment, payment or health care operations, or to persons you identify. We are not required to agree to your request. However, if we do agree to the request, we will honor the restriction until you revoke it or we notify you.

To request restrictions, you must make your request in writing to our HIPAA Privacy Officer. In your request, you must tell us: (1) what information you want to limit; (2) whether you want to limit our use, disclosure, or both; and (3) to whom you want the limits to apply – for example, disclosures to your spouse.

Right to Request Confidential Communications. You have the right to request that we communicate with you about medical matters in a certain way or at a certain location. For example, you can ask that we only contact you at work or by mail.

To request confidential communications, you must make your request in writing to our HIPAA Privacy Officer. We will not ask you the reason for your request. Your request must specify how or where you wish to be contacted. We will accommodate all reasonable requests if you clearly provide information that the disclosure of all or part of your protected information could endanger you.

Right to a Paper Copy of This Notice. You have the right to a paper copy of this notice. You may ask us to give you a copy of this notice at any time. Even if you have agreed to receive this notice electronically, you are still entitled to a paper copy of this notice.

You may obtain a copy of this notice at our website, www.assurity.com.

To obtain a paper copy of this notice, please contact our HIPAA Privacy Officer.

Our Response to Your Request to Exercise Your Rights. We will respond to your requests to exercise any of the above rights on a timely basis as required by law.
