HipAA compliance

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) has several required components that have been enacted in stages since 1996. The latest provision of HIPAA now implemented by MSU Human Resources involves ensuring the privacy and security of a person's Protected Health Information (PHI). While MSU Human Resources has always treated health information with the utmost care, HIPAA requires that we issue notification of MSU's compliance with HIPAA privacy rules.

MSU Human Resources uses PHI for determining benefits eligibility and to enable the general administration of your health and dental benefits. MSU Human Resources is committed to continuing to use the utmost care in handling this information to ensure its privacy and security.

Please read MSU's Commitment to HIPAA Compliance and the Privacy Notice which explain how MSU Human Resources and MSU use and protect PHI. We urge you to read this information carefully and contact MSU Human Resources if you have any questions.
