Where Bluestone has entered into an arrangement with your employer for Saliva RT-PCR Diagnostic and Screening COVID-19 Testing Services for the purpose of surveillance testing of unvaccinated employees and workforce members, in addition to the terms herein and in accordance with the Bluestone Notice of Privacy Practices, Bluestone will only share your personal information, which it has access to or receives related to the testing services, for the sole purpose of communicating with you about the testing services, conducting the testing services, reporting of the results of the testing services, and as required by law. The sharing of this information is further subject to your employer’s testing services requirements and, as such, Bluestone shall maintain, protect, and share the information in accordance with the terms of the arrangement with your employer.
Through your use of the Applications, you may have the opportunity to consult with a health care practitioner (“HCP”) via telephonic or other electronic media (“Telehealth Consultations”). Telehealth Consultations are limited to COVID-19 screening and related triage services and shall not include primary or specialty care services. Prior to receiving Telehealth Consultations, an HCP or Bluestone representative will provide you with more details regarding the Telehealth Consultations, including a description of the risks and benefits associated with the use of Telehealth Consultations and request your consent for a consultation. The HCPs will not provide the Telehealth Consultations without such informed consent.
HCPs are independently contracted or employed by Salimpour Medical Group, Inc., a California professional corporation or an affiliated medical practice (the “Practice”), to provide Telehealth Consultations. Bluestone is not responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care the HCPs render to you. The doctor-patient relationship is between you and the HCP.

Access to and use of the Telehealth Consultations is limited exclusively to users located in states within the United States where the Applications are available.
Neither Bluestone, the Practice, nor any HCP shall bill any health plan, health insurance, or third party payor for Telehealth Consultations provided as part of the Applications.
