Cigna Business Associate Agreement

Cigna Business Associate Agreement

The two companies announced earlier this year that they would unite to provide affordable health insurance to small businesses. The HIPAA data protection rule requires an insured company, including medical practice, to have a written contract or other agreement that documents satisfactory guarantees that a business partner will properly protect PHI information in order to disclose PHI to the counterparty. Counterparty contracts must include a description of the uses and declarations of PHI authorized and required by the counterparty. A covered company must not allow a business partner to violate the data protection rule. The counterparty contract may be an addition to the current contract with the counterparty. A «business partner» is a natural or legal person who receives protected health information (PHI) from a covered organization, for example. B of a medical practice, so that the counterparty can provide services or functions or assist in the performance of services or functions on behalf of the company concerned. An employee of the covered company or a member of the insured company`s staff is not considered a business partner, but an independent contractor. Similarly, health care providers to whom covered companies disclose POs for treatment purposes are not considered to be business partners.
