Warning! The App you have selected to download your personal information from Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield is not required to comply with State or Federal privacy laws, including HIPAA. In addition, the App has not verified that it complies with basic privacy and security standards. These privacy and security standards are listed below for your convenience. We strongly recommend you select an App that has agreed to these basic privacy and security standards.

The App Developer has not verified that it complies with the following basic privacy and security standards:

  • The App has a publicly available privacy policy, written in plain language, that has been affirmatively shared with the member prior to the member authorizing the App access to their health information. To "affirmatively share" means that the member had to take an action to indicate they saw the privacy policy, such as clicking a button or checking a box.
  • The App's privacy policy includes, at a minimum, the following important information:
    • How a member's health information may be accessed, exchanged, or used by any person or other entity, including whether the member's health information may be shared or sold at any time (including in the future);
    • A requirement for express consent from a member before the member’s health information is accessed, exchanged, or used, including receiving express consent before a member's health information is shared or sold (other than disclosures required by law or disclosures necessary in connection with the sale of the application or a similar transaction);
    • If an App will access any other information from a member's device; and
    • How a member can discontinue App access to their data and what the App's policy and process is for disposing of a member's data once the member has withdrawn consent.
