What is HIPAA?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a law that was established in 1996 to protect the health information of patients. The standards that have been set forth by this act give you the right to receive a copy of your medical information, review it and determine if it is correct, and identify who has seen it and/or shared it.
