HIPAA requires that AHS health plans and health care providers give Notices of Privacy Practices to the people they serve. The Notices of Privacy Practices tell beneficiaries and patients about their privacy rights and about how AHS may use or share their health information.
Notice for Beneficiaries of AHS Health Plans: All AHS health plans use the AHS Notice of Privacy Practices for Health Plan Beneficiaries.
- Notice for Patients of AHS Health Care Providers: AHS health care providers have their own Notice of Privacy Practices and give their patients their Notice of Privacy Practices on their first date of service. For copies of an AHS health care provider's Notice of Privacy Practices, contact the provider directly.
