Before you enroll in one of AbleTo, Inc.’s behavioral health programs, we want to inform you that there are certain protections afforded by the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), that generally makes it illegal to discriminate against you based on your genetic information. We would like to provide you with some information about the health information we may ask for from you, how and why we use it, and how we protect it. You are not required to participate in any of these programs. However, if you choose to participate, you may receive incentives and/or information on services to help you manage your health. If you choose not to participate, you may not receive program incentives, if any, offered by your health plan for participation in AbleTo’s programs.
What information do we obtain?
– AbleTo asks questions about your health status and conditions, health-related activities and behaviors.
How do we use your information?
– Information provided to us as part of this Program may be used to help us provide you with feedback and educational information about your lifestyle, to help you in your journey to better manage your mental health.
How do we share and protect your information?
– The health information you give us as part of this Program is generally not shared with your employer (or your spouse’s/parent’s employer), although we may share certain information (e.g., the amount of incentives earned), as necessary where their employer or their designated third party vendor is administering incentive awards. We will share information with our wellness coaches whom are involved in administering this Program and your health plan. We only share information with our vendors and subcontractors in accordance with applicable laws, including HIPAA, as necessary to administer this Program or your health plan, and anyone who receives information from us for purposes of providing you services is required to abide by the same confidentiality requirements.
