Notice of Information and Privacy Practices

The Genetic Disease Screening Program (GDSP) is defined as a health care provider under HIPAA and is a covered entity. GDSP is therefore required to distribute a Notice of Privacy Practice (NPP).

The collection and exchange of personal health information between covered providers for the purpose of treatment, payment, or health care operations with GDSP and our agents in connection with the newborn and prenatal screening programs is permitted by HIPAA and required by state law without special authorization or Business Associates Agreements.
