Title: Privacy Statement
Post by: shelbylmk on February 18, 2017, 04:00:32 PM
What should be covered in my privacy statement? I am going to be opening up a medical billing business in my home.  I want to know what topics should be included in my privacy statement so that  I don't get into trouble with Medicare and Medicaid. Is there a website that I can go to that will help me write a privacy statement? If not would someone being willing to share a copy of their privacy statement so I have an example? Thanks for any and all help.

As a medical billing service we do not have a privacy statement.  We cover our HIPAA responsibilities in our contract and in our BAA.  We also have a Compliance Plan.  But no privacy statement.
