Privacy & Data Security
Q: Does the HIPAA Privacy Rule
require covered entities to
keep patients’ medical records
for any period of time?
A: No, the HIPAA Privacy Rule
does not include medical
record retention requirements.
Rather, State laws generally
govern how long medical
records are to be retained.
However, the HIPAA Privacy
Rule does require that covered
entities apply appropriate
administrative, technical, and
physical safeguards to protect
the privacy of medical records
and other protected health
information (PHI) for whatever
period such information is
maintained by a covered
entity, including through
disposal. See 45 CFR
164.530(c).
