Your Privacy is Important to us!
HIPAA is an acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. While serving many purposes, it is designed to protect consumers from waste, fraud, and abuse of health insurance and health care delivery. Likewise, your personal health information will be kept private, confidential, and secure.
As a consumer, you have a right to privacy, a right to examine your Personal Health Information, your Personal Health Information is more closely safeguarded, and you have a right to make informed choices about the use and release of your Personal Health Information.
At the Barren River Area Agency on Aging, we take every safeguard to secure and protect your information. For more information you can visit http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/index.html.
