HIPAA Privacy and Security

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) provides federal regulations for the privacy and security of patients' health information. HIPAA legislation includes two major provisions that govern the safeguarding of patient information.

HIPAA includes provisions designed to encourage electronic transactions, but also requires safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of health information. Most hospitals, health insurers, pharmacies, doctors and other health care providers are required to comply with these federal standards. The privacy regulations ensure a national standard of privacy protections for patients by limiting the ways that health plans, pharmacies, hospitals and other covered entities can use patients' personal medical information. The regulations protect medical records and other individually identifiable health information, whether on paper, in computers or communicated orally.

BPA is committed to meeting or surpassing the standards set forth in these regulations.
