Privacy Practices Notice and Forms

Privacy Practices Notice

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) helps to protect your privacy. If you are covered by a health plan, you should get a Privacy Practices Notice.  

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) is required by federal and state law to give a Privacy Practices Notice to plan members. The notice explains how BCBSIL can use and share a member’s health and financial information. The notice is different than the website Privacy Statement.
