Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (”HIPAA”)
HIPAA requires all covered entities (health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and healthcare providers who conduct certain healthcare transactions electronically) protect and guard against the misuse of individually identifiable health information.
In addition to the privacy protections imposed by the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA grants a right of access to an individual’s protected health information (“PHI”), the right to request amendments to PHI, and the right to request an accounting of any disclosure that a covered entity has made of PHI.
Individuals may learn more about their rights under HIPAA in a covered entity’s Notice of Privacy Practices. Colorado Access’ Notice of Privacy Practices may be accessed by clicking here.
