A Business Associate Agreement (BAA) typically is required for companies that are subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to ensure that protected health information (PHI) is appropriately safeguarded. Failure to manage data privacy risks with non-business associate vendors may lead to both violations of HIPAA and state privacy laws.

You will be unable to use the HIPAA FORMS Service until you have signed the BAA with Code Monkeys LLC (the developers of the service) and will receive a notice to do so within the “submitted forms” tab as well as in the settings tab until it has been signed.

We HIGHLY recommend that you have a BAA in place with your web designer as well if you use a 3rd party contractor for web design service.
