HIPAA is the acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act which is intended to protect the privacy of client health information. HIPAA established standards, procedures and guidelines for how covered entities are to maintain the privacy and security of protected health information (PHI).

The Department of Social Services complies with HIPAA. To help fulfill the requirements and consistently implement HIPAA, DSS has created several forms to use help when dealing with the use or disclosure of PHI. Both staff and clients are encouraged to use these forms to help assure HIPAA requirements are met.
