What is HIPAA?
You may have heard of HIPAA at your doctor's office but are unsure of what it is. The acronym stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. The federal mandates (45 CFR § 164.524) generally protect you in two ways:
- Your health care history, treatments, diagnoses, etc. are kept private and will not be shared with anyone unless written approval is given by the patient, the patient's guardian, or someone the patient has designated to receive the information.
- As a patient, you have the legal right to all of your medical information.
