Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act

(HIPAA) & 42 CFR


The HIPAA Privacy Rule was designed to provide privacy standards to protect patients’ medical records and other health information provided to health plans, doctors, hospitals and other health care providers. Developed by the Department of Health and Human Services, these standards provide patients more control over how their personal health information is used and disclosed

In addition to HIPAA, our clinics and patient information are protected by the Code of Federal Regulations 42CFR part 2 pertaining to the confidentiality of patient identifying information and part 8 which references our accreditation process and the federal opioid treatment standards.
