Most of us feel that our health information is private and should be protected. That is why there is a federal law that sets rules for health care providers and health insurance companies about who can look at and receive our health information. This law, called the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), gives you rights over your health information, including the right to get a copy of your information, make sure it is correct, and know who has seen it. Learn more about HIPAA.

Here are some HIPAA forms you may need:

HIPAA Request for Accounting of Disclosure
HIPAA Request for Alternative Means of Communication
HIPAA Request for Restrictions on Use and Disclosure
HIPAA Request for Transmission of PHI by Unsecure Means
HIPAA Request to Review-Amend Record
