The Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights enforces Federal civil rights laws and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, which together protect your fundamental rights of nondiscrimination and health information privacy.

Civil Rights help to protect you from unfair treatment or discrimination, because of your race, color, national origin, disability, age, sex (gender), or religion. Federal laws also provide conscience protections for health providers, researchers and insurance plans.

The HIPAA Rules protect the privacy and security of your health information; they say who can look at and receive your health information, and also give you specific rights over that information.
