HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) Privacy Rule allows patients/members the right to receive a notice that describes how individual health information may be used and/or disclosed and how to acquire access to this information. BLS is not a healthcare provider or an insurer and does not allow access to the information. If you wish to have access to your individual health information, please contact your healthcare provider or your insurance company.
