HIPAA compliance will open us up to more opportunities and allow our clients to make payments through our system that they couldn’t before.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) May 02, 2019
Payment automation provider Anybill has gained the HIPAA Attestation of Compliance, indicating the company adheres to HIPAA guidelines and compliance standards. The attestation provides assurances to HIPAA-covered entities that Anybill meets HIPAA guidelines as a vendor and enables clients to process additional payments through the system.
HIPAA standards are set by The Department of Health and Human Services to ensure entities comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. These standards relate to data privacy, security, and other areas under HIPAA’s purview.
To become HIPAA compliant, Anybill spent months reviewing data privacy and security requirements, validating internal processes, and updating policies when necessary. A third-party auditor verified that Anybill was compliant and provided the HIPAA Attestation of Compliance report.
Now, Anybill will be able to work with organizations that require their vendors to be HIPAA-compliant, and clients will be able to use Anybill to make medical and insurance payments that were previously unsupported.
“Because we help our clients manage payments and finances, we prioritize adhering to strict privacy and security standards. Meeting HIPAA guidelines required an internal review and making updates to our policies and procedures,” said Manny Siddiqui, Chief Technology Officer at Anybill. “HIPAA compliance will open us up to more opportunities and allow our clients to make payments through our system that they couldn’t before.”
Anybill’s HIPAA Attestation of Compliance report is available to prospective and existing clients upon request.
Founded in 2001, Anybill provides tax payment services, direct and through partners, to some of the world’s largest corporations and organizations. Based in Washington, D.C., the company is SSAE 18 SOC1 Type II and SOC2 Type II compliant. More information can be found at https://www.anybill.com/.
