HIPAA Compliance Information for Third Party Associates –
a Basic Understanding of Covered Entities and Business Associates
You are known as a Covered Entity or ‘CE’ under the HIPAA Privacy Rule if the HIPAA Privacy Rule applies to your organization. If you send or transmit health information which is identifiable to another person or company who then uses or discloses that information to provide services on your behalf, then that company is known as your Business Associate (BA) under the HIPAA Privacy Rule. Visit Office for Civil Rights – HIPAA for additional information.
The HIPAA Privacy Rule
The HIPAA Privacy Rule states a contract or other arrangement between a Covered Entity and a Business Associate must meet certain requirements pertaining to the protection of Protected Health Information. These requirements are meant to ensure that a Business Associate will provide all appropriate and required safeguards to protect the integrity and privacy of the information entrusted to it by the Covered Entity. If you are a Covered Entity and we are processing claims or other health care transactions for you, then Your Collection Solution, LLC is your Business Associate.
If you are a Covered Entity and there is no existing contract between you and Your Collection Solution, LLC then we highly recommend opening, printing and reviewing our HIPAA Third Party Business Associate Agreement as soon as possible. There is no additional fee for this form or for its use.

FAQ’s for the HIPAA Business Associate Agreement
By executing this Business Associate Agreement, am I now HIPAA-compliant?
Unfortunately, this is only one requirement of many you have as a Covered Entity under HIPAA. By executing a HIPAA Third Party Business Associate Agreement, you are meeting the HIPAA Business Associate requirements of the HIPAA Privacy Rule for your relationship with your Collection Solution, L.L.C. As a Covered Entity, you will have many more requirements of the HIPAA Privacy Rule you will have to meet on your own.
Can you use my HIPAA Business Associate Agreement instead?
Our agreement meets all of the requirements of the HIPAA Privacy Rule for a third party collection agency. However, if you choose to use your own HIPAA Business Associate Agreement, we have established a $150 fee to offset our additional legal costs of reviewing each individual BAA.
If I sign your BAA, do you still need to sign my BAA as well?
Only one BAA is necessary.
