HIPAA Privacy Information
In 1996, the federal government passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, also known as HIPAA. Among other things, this law defined new processes to protect the privacy of patient medical information.
The links on this page explain the regulations of the HIPAA and CJOS’s records release and patient privacy policies. The forms shown here are samples and are only required when there is a request for the release of patient information to an outside entity. If you have any questions, please contact our privacy officer, Lil at extension 213 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
