Privacy Policy

Client Privacy

Health Care for the Homeless is committed to protecting our clients' health information. Our Notice of Privacy Practices explains how all staff members of Health Care for the Homeless will safeguard your privacy. You will receive a copy of the Notice of Privacy Practice at your first appointment, and annually thereafter. You can also request one from any front desk staff member, or review it here in English (en español).

We have chosen to participate in the Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients, Inc. (CRISP), a statewide health information exchange. As permitted by law, your health information will be shared with this exchange in order to provide faster access, better coordination of care and assist providers and public health officials in making more informed decisions. You may “opt-out” and prevent searching of your health information available through CRISP by calling 1-877-952-7477 or completing and submitting an Opt-Out form to CRISP by mail, fax or through their website at

How do I know my credit card information is secure?

Health Care for the Homeless uses secure server software (SSL) that is the industry standard and is among the best available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet.

Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. In the event of an unauthorized charge to your credit card you must:

  1. Write to the creditor at the address given for "billing inquiries," not the address for sending your payments, and include your name, address, account number and a description of the billing error.
  2. Send your letter so that it reaches the creditor within 60 days after the first bill containing the error was mailed to you.
How does Health Care for the Homeless use my e-mail address?

Health Care for the Homeless uses its e-mail list to provide news, action alerts, and other information to subscribers and does not sell or rent its e-mail lists.

Health Care for the Homeless collects e-mails based on an opt-in process, based on information you provide.  You may opt-out of e-mails at any time by clicking the "Manage Subscription" link at the bottom of e-mails.
