What is HIPAA?

HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, which was signed into law to improve the portability and continuity of health insurance coverage. HIPAA includes regulations that guard your privacy, ensure the security of your personal health information, and establish boundaries on how your personal health information may be used or disclosed.

At OAA, we follow both the letter and intent of the HIPAA regulations to safeguard your personal health information. Our "Notice of Privacy Practices" is available here online and in all of our locations.
