Compliancy Group has announced that MeDLiTE Inc., a Hackensack, NJ-based full service medical billing company, has been confirmed as having met all requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Rules
MeDLiTE has been providing medical billing services form more than 30 years and works with a wide spectrum of healthcare providers and specializes in both participating and non-participating billing.
Billing services providers are classed as business associates under HIPAA and are therefore required to comply with the HIPAA Rules. MeDLiTE had implemented safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all electronic protected health information provided by its clients; however, to ensure that none of the requirements of the HIPAA Rules had been missed, MeDLiTE partnered with Compliance Group and chose the HIPAA Seal of Compliance to differentiate its services.
Using Compliancy Group’s Six Stage Implementation Program and compliance tracking software solution (The Guard), MeDLiTE was able to demonstrate the company was adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and the HITECH Act.
After successfully completing Compliancy Group’s 6-Stage HIPAA Risk Analysis and remediation process, Compliancy Group’s HIPAA subject matter experts and compliance coaches confirmed that MeDLiTE had implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and MeDLiTE’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance was recognized with the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates to current and future clients that MeDLiTE is committed to ensuring that all ePHI provided to the company will be protected and the company is meeting all of its responsibilities under HIPAA.
