HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)

In 1996, Congress passed a law called the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA addresses the way a patient’s records are handled and maintained. In addition to the current California Privacy Laws, HIPAA sets a national standard on how health care providers and health plans must protect medical information.

HIPAA requires all treatment providers and health care plans to distribute a privacy notice that explains your rights as a patient, how your medical information may be used, our legal obligations to you, and how you may contact us for information or to file a complaint. This notice is called our Notice of Privacy Practices and is available at the link below or at any of our Family Care Centers.
