HIPAA Privacy Practices

As a health industry leader, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida takes seriously our role in protecting the privacy and confidentiality of protected health information. We comply with federal laws and meet required standards for securing that information, including the privacy components of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act's Administration Simplification provision (HIPAA-AS), which took effect April 14, 2003. Information on HIPAA-AS is available from the Department of Health and Human Services.
