New Horizons Medical is a healthcare organization that is compliant with the nationwide Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) which was passed by the US Congress in 1996. This federal law protects sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge. Typically, minimal necessary information about your medical visit will be disclosed with Covered Entities to provide you with requested services.

HIPAA Privacy regulations require healthcare providers and organizations, as well as their business associates, to develop and follow procedures that ensure the confidentiality and security of protected health information (PHI) when it is transferred, received, handled, or shared.  This applies to all forms of PHI, including paper, oral, and electronic records, etc. 

The following types of individuals and organizations are subject to the Privacy Rule and considered covered entities as described by CDC.gov:

Exception: A group health plan with fewer than 50 participants that is administered solely by the employer that established and maintains the plan is not a covered entity.

For any additional questions on how your information is protected by healthcare organizations, please visit HHS’s HIPAA website webpage.
