Privacy

Health care organizations and professionals must comply with federal and state patient privacy laws and regulations, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Some providers treating individuals with substance use disorders may also have to operate under the more stringent privacy standards of 42 C.F.R. Part 2.

We help our clients understand and comply with patient information privacy laws and regulations.
