Website Privacy Statement

At BayCarePlus, we know privacy is important to you. Privacy is one of your rights as a consumer as well as a BayCarePlus member. It’s also a right that you retain even when you’re no longer a member of BayCarePlus.

BayCarePlus doesn’t share your protected health information with anyone else unless you provide us with permission to do so. We engage in training programs for our employees to ensure that they know the procedures they need to follow to make sure that your information, whether in oral, written or electronic format, is secure and safeguarded. We won’t sell, license, transmit or disclose personal information, outside of BayCarePlus, unless it’s expressly authorized by you; necessary to enable our contractors or agents to perform certain functions for us; or required or permitted by law. Personal information means data that’s unique to an individual, such as name, address, Social Security number or telephone number.

In addition to this Privacy Statement, BayCarePlus’s Notice of Privacy Practices will give you more specific information and details about how we ensure the privacy of your protected health information. The Notice of Privacy Practices also provides details about how we’ll use and disclose protected health information.
