MaineGeneral Health is dedicated to protecting our patients'
privacy, as outlined in our Notice of Privacy Practices for Protected Health Information.
We safeguard patients' medical records by adhering to the Health
Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
The federal rules of HIPAA insure that disclosing medical
information is limited to what is necessary to treat patients,
pay insurance claims or advise patient-authorized family members.
MaineGeneral Health has provided and continues to provide
extensive training and education about the new medical privacy
rule to our medical care staff and all of our employees.
We've also provided patient education.
This is just one of the ways MaineGeneral Health is working to
enhance our patients' experiences and the quality of the care
they receive at our facilities.
If you have any questions regarding the information provided in
the Privacy Notice, please call (207) 626-1534 for more
