6. Is my privacy protected?

The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals' medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically. This requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of personal health information, and sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without patient authorization. It also gives patients rights over their health information, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records, and to request corrections. Upon arrival, your Physical Therapist will have a HIPAA Privacy form available for you to fill out among others. They are available for your download and review on our New Patients Page. Click Here
