:confused:
Our office is reviewing our Privacy Practices to make sure we are compliant with the HIPAA Omnibus rule enacted in 2013. There is some discussion about whether or not a new patient has to be give all 5 pages of the Privacy Notice, or if a summary of the Privacy notice is compliant as long as we make sure all pages are on display and copies available upon specific request. It doesn't seem that other practices are providing all 5 pages to patients so we are just wondering if we are interpreting the requirements correctly.

Thank you for you input!

You need to have the Notice of Privacy Policy posted in the office, on your website and offer them to your clients. Just remember to have them sign the acknowledgement and keep it in their record.

Hope this helps.
