HIPAA

HIPAA protects the privacy of an individual’s health information.

Oklahoma privacy laws and the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 protect the privacy of an individual’s health information. For HIPAA purposes, OMES has designated itself as a hybrid entity. This means that HIPAA only applies to areas of OMES operations involving health care, and not to all lines of service offered by OMES.
