Fax Protocol to Protect Patient Information
June 16, 2014
Sending Protected Health Information (PHI) in a password protected document is more secure than faxing. If you need to fax a document to MaineCare, please do the following:
- Notify the intended recipient that you have sent a fax.
- Use a fax cover sheet and do not include any PHI on the cover sheet.
- Identify the intended recipient on the cover sheet.
