Model Notice of Privacy Practices - 2013
Updated June 2013
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published the Omnibus HIPAA Final Rule in January 2013. Providers, as covered entities, are required to maintain and distribute a notice that describes their HIPAA privacy practices to all their patients. The notice should include how the practice will use and disclose Protected Health Information (PHI) about an individual and under what circumstances authorization from the individual may not be necessary. Providers must update their Notice of Privacy Practices by September 23, 2013.
