Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Disclaimer Statement Guidance

E-mail disclaimer statements are usually of a legal character and advise recipients of electronic correspondence regarding the necessity to maintain confidentiality. They can also be added to disclaim liability.

Typically, an e-mail disclaimer statement should: a) set forth what federal statutes or departmental regulations may apply; b) include a statement regarding the sensitivity of the information being transmitted and the need to protect it; and, c) if the correspondence contains protected health information (PHI) or other healthcare information, it is recommended to include a warning or prohibition against unauthorized duplication and/or unauthorized re-disclosure.

For further guidance on developing and implementing an e-mail disclaimer statement, please contact your local privacy office.

“On October 1, 2013, the Department of Defense established the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to manage the activities of the Military Health System. These activities include those previously managed by TRICARE Management Activity (TMA), which was disestablished on the same date. During the next several months, all TMA websites will change to reflect the new DHA. We appreciate your patience during this transition."
