Notification of Use and Signature
In order for MannKind to provide me with patient support services and/or programs, MannKind needs to collect and use my personal information, including my PHI. I understand that my PHI may include any information, in electronic or physical form, in the possession of or derived from a health care provider, health care plan, pharmacy, pharmaceutical company, laboratory and/or their contractor (“Health Care Provider”). This may include select information from or about my medical history and general health, my health care plan benefits, payment limits or restrictions covered by my health care plan policy, and/or my adherence to my treatment.
I authorize my Health Care Providers to disclose my PHIto MannKind, and between themselves, as necessary, but only for the purposes stated above in this Authorization.
Expiration, Right to Obtain a Copy and Right to Cancel
I understand that by signing this form, I authorize my Health Care Providers, or others who might hold my health information to only release it to MannKind employees, as well as to its contractors and business partners performing the services set forth in this Authorization. I also understand I am authorizing my personal information, including my PHI, to be used for the purposes described above.
I understand and agree that by signing below, I am authorizing those who rely on this Authorization to release my PHI for the earlier of five (5) years or until my participation in the program ends through my cancellation, unless a shorter time period is required by state law.
I understand that I can obtain a copy of this Authorization or cancel this Authorization at any time by calling MannKind at 1-844-622-7371, or by writing to 30930 Russell Ranch Road, Suite 300, Westlake Village CA, 91362. If I cancel my consent, I will no longer qualify for the services described. I also understand that if a Health Care Provider is disclosing my PHI to MannKind on an authorized on-going basis, my cancellation with MannKind will be effective with respect to any such Health Care Providers as soon as they receive notice of my cancellation.
No Effect on Treatment
I understand I do not have to sign this Authorization and that my enrollment in any of the services and/or programs described above is entirely voluntary. I understand that MannKind, as well as Health Care Providers, cannot require me, as a condition of having access to medications, prescription drugs, treatment or other care, to sign this Authorization. Federal Law (including HIPAA) requires a signed authorization in order for MannKind to collect this information from my Health Care Providers. I understand I cannot participate in the listed services and/or programs without signing this Authorization or an equivalent authorization with my Health Care Providers.
Information Received from Health Care Providers
