In order for medical professionals In New Hampshire and Massachusetts to come into compliance with HIPAA rules governing document destruction, they must do two things:

  1. First, they must exert due diligence in choosing a reliable vendor for the disposal of PHI by shredding.
  2. They must also give written permission to the vendor to remove PHI for the sole purpose of disposal by shredding. This written permission is referred to as a "Business Associates Agreement." BSI would be in violation of certain provisions of HIPAA if we did not receive written permission from our clients in the medical profession to possess such information for the sole purpose of shredding.

BSI has simplified the due diligence aspect by supplying the name and phone number of our insurance claims representative. Our representative will verify that BSI has never had an employee dishonesty claim or any suit filed against us for any wrongdoing on our part whatsoever.
