Posting Your HIPAA Privacy Policy

Along with having a written privacy document that patients can review in your practice, U.S. chiropractors must also publish a notice on their website. According to a government website, every U.S. chiropractic practice is required to provide a notice on their website in plain language that describes:

Privacy policy

Every U.S. chiropractic practice is required to provide a privacy policy notice on their website.

  • How you may use and disclose protected health information about an individual.
  • The individual’s rights with respect to the information and how the individual may exercise these rights, including how the individual may complain to you.
  • Your legal duties with respect to the information, including a statement that you are required by law to maintain the privacy of protected health information.
  • The effective date of your policy.
  • Whom individuals can contact for further information about your privacy policies.

Naturally, your website already includes a privacy policy, but nothing specifically about how your practice handles protected health information. Just a heads up that if you haven’t created your practice privacy policy, you should. And if you haven’t supplied a summary of the points above to post to your website, you should do that as well.

Send us your HIPAA Privacy Policy and we’ll get it published.
