HEALTH INSURANCE PORTABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT (HIPAA)
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), a federal law, is designed to protect the privacy of an individual‘s medical information. The Company complies with HIPAA to the extent it is applicable. (Note: Choose the option that fits your operations) (Option 1: The Company is not a covered entity under HIPAA, however, it does sponsor a group health plan. Therefore, the Company follows the HIPAA standards for non-covered entities which sponsor group health plans.) (Option 2: The Company is a covered entity under HIPAA and complies accordingly.) (Option 3: The Company is neither a covered entity nor a sponsor of a group health plan. Therefore the Company complies with HIPAA to the extent it deals with third parties requiring compliance.)
(Note: This applies to companies which choose options 1 or 2 above) You will receive a HIPAA Notice of Privacy Rights. If at any time, you have any questions about HIPAA, please contact the individual designated in the Notice of Privacy Rights.
