Your personal information is always confidential. No one outside The Prevention Plan – not even your insurance company or employer -- will see your personal information. Guaranteed.
U.S. Preventive Medicine --which provides The Prevention Plan -- is required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to keep our member’s health information private, unless they provide informed consent for the information to be shared with another person or organization. Numerous processes, practices and check points are in place to assure this.
U.S. Preventive Medicine is accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and URAC, both prestigious organizations that accredit and certify health care organizations to improve the quality of health care and protect consumers. These organizations examine, among other things, the capability of U.S. Preventive Medicine to protect members’ confidentiality.
It is the right thing to do. The overarching mission of the professionals at U.S. Preventive Medicine is to provide all members with valuable information and assistance they can trust. This is the only approach that will benefit the member for the long-term, and ultimately ensure U.S. Preventive Medicine’s business success.
- The personal health information a member provides to The Prevention Plan will NEVER be shared with other organizations unless obvious permission is provided. This is guaranteed.
- In the rare event it is determined that information will be shared, the member will grant permission in writing. Moreover, the request for this permission will be clear, easy-to-understand and not hidden in the “small print.”
- Related to the Prevention Score: If information about a member’s score is provided to an employer or other paying sponsor, the member’s specific score will not be reported. Only the level, in increments of 250 points, will be provided. (More information about this is available within the member’s Prevention Plan website.)
