What is HIPAA?
HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. The law was designed to protect the confidentiality and security of patients’ healthcare information. HIPAA provides patients with access to their medical records and more control over how their personal health information is used and disclosed.
Why is HIPAA important to me?
HIPAA protects the confidentiality of your personal health care information. Any information that your health care providers receive or create regarding your health, health history, treatment, and payment activities is confidential under HIPAA.
The law requires your health care providers to document the safeguards, policies, and procedures that will protect the privacy of your health care information. Under HIPAA, you have more control over the uses and disclosures of your health care information.
