HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices (NoPP) and Privacy Forms
The NoPP is a separate document from the website Privacy Statement. It is a notice that Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) is required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to provide to members covered under a BCBSIL insurance policy. The notice describes the way in which BCBSIL can use or disclose the Protected Health Information (PHI) that we maintain about you. Members of a self-funded plan should obtain a notice from their employer/group health plan.
Under HIPAA, you have several rights related to your privacy. For example, you can:
- Provide authorization for BCBSIL to share your PHI
- Request access to your PHI
- File a complaint
To make a request, please print out and complete the appropriate form below, sign the form and mail it according to the instructions provided.
