Health Payment Systems is committed to ensuring the safety and security of your Personal Health Information (PHI) and complying with the standard requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA.)
We fully comply with HIPAA, which is a federal law designed to protect your PHI, defend the patients’ rights to have their health information kept private and preserve patient control of how their PHI data is used and when it is disclosed. We follow the Privacy and Security Rules in HIPAA that define our standards for protecting all forms of PHI. We are guided by the specific Administrative and Technical Safeguards in the HIPAA.
Health Payment Systems closely adheres to these HIPAA standards in its system development and information processing methods to ensure that information about you/your family members’ healthcare is protected.
We take every precaution to safeguard your information. That is our commitment to you.
Some examples of how we guard your data:
- We require a unique username and strong password to access HPS Online Access
- We set an Inactivity Timeout so that after long periods of inactivity, our system will automatically log you out for your protection
- We require strong encryption methods such as SSL when using HPS Online Access, to ensure your personal information is protected
