We carefully guard your confidential, individual-identifiable information (commonly referred to as your personal information). Personal information includes information that identifies you, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, social security number and date of birth, wage and job classification, and information related to your health coverage. BRMS obtains your personal information through its administrative, clinical management, network services and various services related to health plans, and insurance policies, and when you send information to us (through this Web site or otherwise). We limit our collection and use of information to the minimum required to deliver health benefits services.
We gather these types of information through our Web sites:
We only use the information gathered by our Web sites, or provided by you on our Web sites, for health benefits services. This information is shared with other entities providing health benefit services to you; however, we do work with business partners under non-disclosure agreements and may share with them certain information to develop a relationship with them.
BRMS undertakes to comply with all health information privacy laws that apply to us. Information about you may include Protected Health Information (PHI) as defined by the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), and Title 45, Parts 160 through 164 of the Code of Federal Regulations and other associated laws and regulations. Consistent with our respect for you and your privacy, we will not use or share your PHI for purposes other than treatment, payment or health care operations (including, but not limited to, quality assessment, fraud detection, regulatory and mandatory legal activities), or for other purposes as allowed under HIPAA.
We may send, via e-mail, periodic reminders of our notices, unless you have instructed us not to, but please check our Web sites frequently for recent changes.
