What is H.I.P.A.A.?
H.I.P.A.A. stands for the Health Insurance and Portability Accountability Act. H.I.P.A.A. is a federally mandated policy that basically states how we as an EMS service can use your personal health information. The only two entities that receive any medical information from Jackson County EMS is the receiving hospital and our billing service. We do not distribute any other information pertinent to our patients to any other person or entity.
