HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices
This Notice of Privacy Practices (the "Notice") describes the privacy practices of Luscinia Health and how Luscinia Health may use and disclose your protected health information to process and identify your pharmacy-related benefits, payments, and other purposes that are required by applicable law. Please review it carefully.
Protected Health Information ("PHI") is information about you that we obtain to provide our services to you and that can be used to identify you. It includes your name, basic contact information, and information about your prescriptions. We take our responsibility to protect this information very seriously.
We are required by law to protect the privacy of your PHI and to provide you with this Notice explaining our legal duties and privacy practices regarding your PHI. This Notice also describes your rights and the obligations we have regarding the use and disclosure of your PHI. Under federal and applicable state law, we are required to follow the terms of the Notice currently in effect. We are required to follow state privacy laws when they are stricter (or more protective of your PHI) than the federal law.

- We will let you know promptly if a breach occurs that may have compromised the privacy or security of your PHI.
- We must follow the duties and privacy practices described in this notice and give you a copy of it.
