Here at predictaBill, we care about your privacy. After all, the whole reason we are building our database is to help you. Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), you are legally permitted to disclose your own protected health information to companies like ours.
More importantly, once you provide us with your information, it will be encrypted and stored in a secure manner. If you’d like, you can even redact your personally identifying information yourself before sharing your bills with us. Regardless of what you share, any information that you provide that identifies you personally will not be visible in predictaBill’s products or services.
If you have any questions about our encryption and data storage, don’t hesitate to contact us.
