HIPAA Privacy Statement

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 is a broad federal law enacted by Congress in part to help protect patient privacy. The part of the law that deals with patient privacy is intended to do the following:

  • Give patients more control over their health information.
  • Set limits on the use and disclosure of health information.
  • Establish safeguards that hospitals, physicians, health plans and clearinghouses (“covered entities”) and their business associates must have in place to protect the privacy of health information.
  • Holds violators accountable with civil and criminal penalties if they violate a patient’s privacy rights.
