Client Rights and Notice of Privacy Practices
All County clients have certain rights with respect to their privacy. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and other state and federal laws, regulate the use of clients' Protected Health Information (PHI). These laws require the County to provide a copy of its Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP) to clients for whom the County provides treatment.
