Medical Shredding Requirements

Medical Office Shredding

Medical Shredding Requirements


Maryland (MD), Washington DC and Virginia (VA) doctors offices and hospitals are bound by the strictures of the Heath Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, commonly known as HIPAA. The Act protects the privacy of protected health information (PHI). Your files contain your clients' medical records; thus, you must comply with the HIPAA provisions for safeguarding of those files, as well as their disposal by paper shredding and document destruction.

These two aspects of the HIPAA Regulation are simple to comply with. BudgetShred, Inc. has helped numerous doctors offices and hospitals come into compliance with HIPAA.

In order for medical professionals to come into compliance with HIPAA rules governing document destruction, they must do two things. First, they must exert due diligence in choosing a reliable vendor for the disposal of PHI by shredding. They must also give written permission to the vendor to remove PHI for the sole purpose of disposal by shredding. This written permission is referred to as a "Business Associates Agreement." BSI would be in violation of certain provisions of HIPAA if we did not receive written permission from our clients in the medical profession to possess such information for the sole purpose of shredding.

BSI has simplified the due diligence aspect by supplying the name and phone number of our insurance claims representative. Our representative will verify that BSI has never had an employee dishonesty claim or any suit filed against us for any wrongdoing on our part whatsoever.

We provide a suitable Business Associates Agreement to be used for the purpose of securing BudgetShred's services:
