Notifications

A NYS licensed facility providing addiction treatment services has been advised that when a patient has been referred for treatment by another entity (hospital, family agency, courts, etc.) notice that the patient has presented for treatment may not be given to the referring agency without the written permission of the patient. No other PHI would be provided other than the notification.

Is this true?
