Notice Regarding Form
The Forms Professionals Trust! ™
HIPAA, requires health care professionals to protect privacy and create standards for electronic transfers of health data. HIPAA came about because of the public's concern about how health care information is used. HIPAA gives patients more control over their own health information. HIPAA requires health care providers to follow certain rules to protect the privacy of patients' health information. For instance, employees are not allowed to access information on patients unless they need the information to perform their jobs.
Some acupuncturists are still operating under the notion that they do not have to comply with HIPAA regulations because they do not bill insurance for reimbursement or do not send electronic bills. However, this is only one of the sections in the HIPAA regulations. The other three sections of HIPAA (background, privacy and security) do normally apply to acupuncturists.
