HIPAA Update

UPDATED 10/17/2023

  • The US Department of Health and Human Services (HSS.gov) has stated that credit card processing does not fall within the scope of HIPAA as no health record information is being stored – only card payment information and collecting payments is excluded explicitly from HIPAA mandates. No card holder, bank account, or other material information is shown on credit card processing statements. See 45 CFR 164.502(e), 164.504(e), 164.532(d) and (e) https://www.hhs.gov/hipaa/for-professionals/privacy/guidance/business-associates/index.html

At Payment Brokers, security, privacy, and regulatory compliance are not just checkboxes; they are at the core of our operations. You can trust us to handle your sensitive data with the utmost care and diligence, allowing you to focus on growing your business with confidence.
