The HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. The act was made to help individuals to keep their health insurance, and to make sure that all of their personal information was secure and confidential, according to Tennessee Department of Health. The forms can be found at any health care provider, or from a number of online sources such as the American Medical Association website, or for free on the Illinois Government website. Before using any forms found online, it is extremely important to make sure that the forms follow the most recent HIPAA guidelines.

On the Illinois government website, navigate to the HIPAA page through the "Medical Programs" link. Here, there are two links that will open up a list of downloadable PDFs with HIPAA privacy forms. Because health insurance regulations can vary by state, these forms may not be valid in states other than Illinois. Contact the United States Department of Health and Human Services with any questions regarding HIPAA.
