What is HIPAA?

HIPAA is an acronym for a federal statute titled “Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.” HIPAA and the federal regulations which implement HIPAA address the use and disclosure of your health information by doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers. You have four basic rights under HIPAA:

  1. The right to inspect or copy your health information.
  2. The right to request a correction of your health information.
  3. The right to a notice of how your health care provider uses and discloses health information.
  4. The right to obtain an accounting of how your information has been disclosed.
