Know your rights as a patient

Have you heard about the Patient Privacy Act? Effective April 14, 2003, new laws were passed to protect a patient’s health information. WellMed is in compliance with these federal and state requirements and we are taking extra steps to ensure all patient information is protected. So if you should call in to verify your appointment time or to ask about results of a test, please do not be offended when our staff asks you to provide answers to certain questions about your account before assisting you. Thank you, in advance, for your patience and working with us to ensure the protection of your patient health information.
