HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices (NoPP) and Privacy Forms
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) helps to protect your privacy. Under HIPAA, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) must provide a NoPP to members covered by our insurance plans.
The NoPP is a separate document from the website Privacy Statement. The NoPP is a notice that tells how we can use or disclose your Protected Health Information (PHI). Please note: Members who are covered by a self-funded group health plan should receive a NoPP from their employer. Contact your employer if you need a copy of your plan's NoPP.
Under HIPAA, you have rights related to your privacy. For example, you can:
- Give permission for BCBSIL to share your PHI
- Request access to your PHI
- File a complaint
To make a request, please print out and complete the form, sign the form and mail it based on the instructions provided.
