Doctors’ ARMOR by Physicians Indemnity recognizes the importance of respecting and maintaining the privacy of our applicants and members. In the course of providing you with a wide array of services designed to fulfill your insurance needs, it is necessary for us to gather information about you. We assure you that we will take all reasonably available steps to safeguard all such information confidential in nature. Doctors’ ARMOR will not disclose or use the information except as outlined in this statement.
Although Doctors’ ARMOR has procedures and technologies in place to protect against unauthorized disclosure of confidential information, because of the current regulatory climate surrounding use of the Internet, as well as the possibility of unintended disclosures caused by third-party negligence or malfeasance, there is no guarantee that information posted on this site will remain confidential at all times. In addition, to the extent you provide or access information on Doctors’ ARMOR through the use of a password, you are encouraged to keep any password(s) confidential and secure, as we cannot be responsible for acts resulting from the unauthorized use of such information.
The occasion may arise that a request for our members’ medical information protected by the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) may be made. Our applications, for example, ask for information regarding any claims made against you in the past, and our Claims staff may need medical information to provide claims service; our Risk Managers may also need medical information to assist you. Some of this information will be protected by HIPAA. We have provisions in each of our policies that confirm we will keep the protected information confidential as required by HIPAA. This is referred to as a “Business Associate Agreement,” which simply means that persons sharing protected information in the course of authorized business will do so in compliance with the requirements of HIPAA.
Doctors’ ARMOR by Physicians Indemnity strives to ensure that information contained on our website is current, accurate, and reliable. Factors beyond our control, however, preclude us from any offer of any warranty or guarantee of any nature concerning the accuracy or reliability of any information contained on our website.
