HIPAA Compliance within the MHS

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) applies to your protected health information (PHI). Your PHI is any information that:

  • Identifies you;
  • Is about your health or demographics;
  • Is maintained by a covered entity or business associate; and
  • Is related to your treatment, your medical condition, and the related payment for that condition as maintained by a covered entity or business associate.

The Defense Health Agency (DHA) Privacy and Civil Liberties Office (Privacy Office) helps the Military Health System (MHS) comply with the following HIPAA Rules:

  • The HIPAA Privacy Rule defines how your PHI should be safeguarded, limits when it can be used and disclosed without your authorization, and ultimately gives you some control over your own PHI.
  • The HIPAA Security Rule defines how your PHI should be protected and transferred when maintained electronically. 
  • The HIPAA Breach Notification Rule defines when your PHI has been inappropriately used or disclosed (see Breaches of PII and PHI page) and describes the breach response obligations of a covered entity.

The Chief of the DHA Privacy Office is the appointed HIPAA Privacy Officer and HIPAA Security Officer, and has authority over the HIPAA Privacy and Security programs at DHA.

For more information DHA’s HIPAA compliance program, please read the DHA’s HIPAA Privacy and HIPAA Security Core Tenets Policy Statement.
