Next Step Recovery is committed to the privacy of all of our residents and therapy clients. To that end, we strive to comply with the privacy rule of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). This rule sets standards for covered entities, such as Next Step Recovery, to protect personal health information and allow an individual access to his or her protected health information.
Next Step Recovery has completed activities required for compliance with the privacy rule and has implemented policies and procedures necessary to protect the privacy of our members’ personal health information, as is our legal obligation.
HIPAA also requires that all payers be capable of performing transactions electronically if requested by providers, groups, or insurance companies; and that transactions must use a standard “HIPAA-compliant” format with regard to file formats, codes, identification numbers, etc. Examples of transactions that fall under these regulations include enrollment records, eligibility information, and payments.
Next Step Recovery has completed all internal system changes and processes to accept and handle the required electronic transactions.
The HIPAA regulations also include a security rule. Effective on April 21, 2005, the security rule set the standard to ensure the privacy of electronic protected health information. Next Step Recovery has implemented the requirements of the rule and continually monitors and manages the required security controls. This includes but is not limited to protocols for sharing protected health information across employees, partners, and government entities. It also includes but is not limited to protocols for deleting protected health information from from both internal and third party databases. Next Step Recovery continues to implement new technologies that improve the security of infrastructure beyond the requirements of the HIPAA security regulation.
For more information, including requests for access to or deletion of your protected health information (PHI), please contact Next Step Recovery in writing.
