Privacy and Security of Health Information
UTMB is committed to protecting the privacy of and securing the health care information of our patients. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 was enacted by Congress to create a national standard for protecting the privacy of patients’ personal health information. HIPAA provides patients with several significant rights. If you feel you feel your health information has been misused in any way, please call the UTMB Privacy Office at 409-747-8700. You may also call our anonymous Fraud, Abuse and Privacy hotline at 1-800-898-7679.
