If someone poses a potential threat to themselves or others, we may disclose their PHI to law enforcement or other appropriate authorities to prevent harm.

You have the right to inspect and obtain a copy of your PHI. You may also request that we make changes to your PHI, although we may deny your request under certain circumstances.
