We have strived to design and manage our site to meet current industry standards of privacy and security, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) as amended by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act Section 13402 ("HITECH Act") and implementing regulations (collectively referred to as "HIPAA Regulations"). While no website can be 100% secure, MedImpact has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. MedImpact's Web Server uses encryption technology to ensure private and authenticated communication by encrypting (via 128-bit SSL encryption standard) all user-identifying data between two parties (customer and Website). In addition, MedImpact's Websites have the added benefit of "secure site verification" for Internet customers issued by Equifax™ (The Certificate Issuing Authority) that MedImpact is indeed a real company.
Access to MedImpact's database is protected by physical security, with access limited to few personnel. MedImpact's database IP is only accessible through our application and not visible over the Internet. MedImpact's servers are continuously monitored for network intrusion.
The Information We Collect
MedImpact collects and stores your Profile in order for you to manage your health. You may be required to pre-enroll though a provider or health plan, which will then start the enrollment process with us. You can logon to your health plan's website to obtain a user id and password before you access your protected healthcare information.
This Website's registration form may require that you give MedImpact your personal and controlled e-mail address (we strongly recommend that this not be your work-related address) and certain personal information (currently your first and last name, member ID number, and birth date). Using your registration information, MedImpact develops a Profile for you in order for you to receive optimal benefits when you are using our Website.
In addition, MedImpact automatically gathers general statistical information about our Website and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, etc., but in doing so we do not reference you by individual name, e-mail address, home address, or telephone number.

MedImpact also provides this statistical information to third parties.
