Your Health Information and Privacy Rights
Your private medical and health history information is important, and we take extra care in safe-guarding it. The Privacy Rule, a Federal law, gives you rights over your health information and sets rules and limits on who can look at and receive your health information. Learn more about your protected health information.
The Office for Civil Rights has teamed up with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services of the National Coordinator for Health IT to create “Your Health Information, Your Rights!”. Below you will find a series of three short, educational videos (in English or the option for Spanish captions) to help you understand your right under HIPAA to access and receive a copy of your health information. Also, you can view the three separate descriptive pages attached under HIPAA General Facts that will provide a detailed summary of your rights under HIPAA.
