HIPAA: Protecting your privacy
Your privacy, and the privacy of your health information, is important to us. That’s why we’re committed to keeping all of your information safe and secure.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) became federal law in 1996. Among other things, the law requires that your personal information be protected, and that only those people authorized to see it (like your doctor or your authorized representative) are allowed access to it.
We take our obligations under HIPAA very seriously. We take every precaution to ensure that your privacy is protected, not just because it’s the law but because we know it’s important to you.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) provides specific rights to all individuals about their protected health information (PHI).
Our privacy policies assure the confidentiality of your PHI. PHI is any individually identifiable health information that relates to your past, present or future physical or mental health or condition; the provision of healthcare to you; or the past, present or future payment for the provision of healthcare to you.
If you have questions about the privacy of your health information, call us at 800-447-4000.
