Employment Process - Health Insurance Portability and Accountability/Compliance (HIPAA)

To state the College's policy regarding HIPAA requirements

Randolph Community College is not a covered entity as defined by HIPAA; however, we do maintain health care and related plans that are subject to HIPAA requirements. Thus, RCC has made the decision that HIPAA privacy and security provisions will apply to protected health information (PHI) maintained by RCC.

HIPAA regulations will be followed in administrative activities undertaken by assigned personnel when they involve PHI in any of the following circumstances: health information privacy, health information security and health information electronic transmission.

RCC will consider any breaches in privacy and confidentiality of handling of PHI to be serious and disciplinary action will be taken in accordance with our policies.
