The HIPAA Privacy Rule provides federal protections for personal health information held by covered entities and gives patients an array of rights concerning that information. At the same time, the Privacy Rule is balanced so that it permits the disclosure of personal health information needed for patient care and other essential purposes. The Privacy and Security Rules apply only to covered entities. Individuals, Agency and agencies that meet the definition of a covered entity under HIPAA must comply with the Rules requirements to protect the privacy and security of health information and must provide individuals with certain rights with respect to their health information. If an entity is not a covered entity, it does not have to comply with the Privacy Rule or the Security Rule.
