Red Cross Pharmacy, like other retail pharmacies, complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy regulations.
These regulations require healthcare providers to have policies and procedures in place that provide safeguards to keep patient information confidential.
All healthcare providers are required to maintain the privacy of their customers’ Protected Health Information (PHI) and to provide their customers with a notice of legal duties and privacy practices with respect to PHI.
PHI is personal information, including basic demographic information, which may identify a specific customer that relates to past, present or future physical or mental health or conditions and related healthcare services.
The Notice of Privacy Practices (Notice) describes how we may use and disclose PHI about our customers to carry out treatment, payment or healthcare operations and for other specified purposes. It also describes your rights with respect to PHI about you.
