Speaker 1: Welcome to our weekly video tip with Kats Consultants.

┬áDave: Hi, this is Dave Kats and Dr. Michael Perusich with Kats Consultant and we have a tip for you. Everybody has their patients sign the acknowledgment of privacy policy. When you have them sign that one-page form when it comes in the office it says, “I have and have offered you or have given you our privacy policies,” you better have a privacy policy in your office. Where do you keep your privacy policies?

Michael: We keep it right at the front desk, we actually have it laminated, if anybody ever asked to see it, it’s right there ready to go.

Dave: I had about three years ago when one of my clinics, I had a new CA called me and said, “Hey, he’s asking for the privacy policy because he says we have one,” I said, “Yes, it’s right here just give it to him,” and she gave it to him and he said, “Well, I don’t want to read it I just wanted to see if you actually really had one.” He was just putting us to the test, but you have to have a privacy policy and is usually about five or six pages long, you can have it laminated it at the front desk, you can have it on the wall, you can have copies in a folder holder but you have to have it in your practice for you to be legal.

There’s other place you want to put it too.

┬áMichael: Yes, you want to make sure that you have it on your website. It has to be attached your website for you to be completely compliant If you don’t have one you can actually get it from somebody’s website.

Dave: That’s exactly what I was going to say. If you say, “Well, I don’t have a privacy policy, where am I going to get one? Go to anybody else’s website and run one off and just copy it and change it the way you want to. It’s got to be on your website, it’s got to be in your office and you can get one from anybody that you want but make sure that you have one because that’s the first thing compliance officers look for when they come into your office. This is Dave Kats and Dr. Michael Perusich, thanks for listening.
