MEDICAL CODING AND BILLING

QUESTION ON HIPAA.# ARE THERE REQUIREMENTS FOR COVERED ENTITIES TO HAVE WRITTEN PRIVACY POLICIES? IF SO, THAT HAS TO BE ADDRESSED IN THE POLICY?
#2 DOES HIPAA AFFECT THE PATIENT'S ACCESS TO HIS OR HER MEDICAL RECORDS? IF SO, DISCRIBE THE EFFECT AND THE PROCEDURE FOR OBTAINING ACCESS?
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. In computer language, using capital letters is considered impolite, like shouting. Some volunteers will not read your questions, because it is much more difficult to read caps.
