Get It, Check It, Know Who Has Seen It
The Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 or HIPAA is a federal law that sets rules about who can view and receive your Protected Health Information or PHI. This law gives you rights over your health information and when it can be shared.
In addition, HIPAA requires your physicians, pharmacists and other health care providers, and your health plan to explain your rights and how your health information can be used or shared. Most of us believe that our medical and other health information is private and should be protected, and we want to know who has this information.
You will learn about historical information, important terminology, sharing health information with family members and friends, and understand your health information privacy as a consumer.Request This Free Speech
