  • Question
    Are faxes HIPPA compliant?

    Community Answer
    That would depend upon the content of the fax. If it would be a violation of HIPPA laws for anyone other the intended recipient to see the contents of the fax, don't send it, because people often leave their fax machines unattended.
    Thanks!

    With PayPal or a credit card, generally. Follow the steps on the site to send the fax and it will take you to the page where you enter your payment information, if payment is required. In many cases, though, it doesn't cost anything.
