Is Your Credit Card Terminal PCI HIPAA Compliant?


World Pay is a company that I have come across that has some really good educational information for clients and perspective clients on Payment Care Industry or PCI Compliance.  HIPAA extends to protect the financial information of clients.  It is important that you have policies regarding your PCI practices or accepting and processing credit card payments.  If your credit card processing company helping you?  Is your credit card terminal PCI Compliant, feel free to check the lists for WPVeriFone EOL Products and WPHypercom T7Plus End of Life that have reached”End of Life” or are no longer compliant.

A company can be out of PCI compliance in two ways 1) the terminal they use does not meet criteria and 2) through processes of gathering, transmitting and storing data.

Let me tell you what impressed me about World Pay.  They have a terminal that is end to end encrypted to protect financial data.  This company has a tremendous about of education materials on this topic. There fee of $14.99/month of PCI compliance includes 24/7 customer service, guidance to get your policies and procedures in place, a third party vendor to provide PCI Accreditation and Certification for that process only, and $30K of indemnity coverage when using their standard terminal or $100K indemnity coverage if your are using their end to end encrypted terminal, they help with negotiations with visa, master card, etc., if their is a breach.  Additional medical audit and HIPAA breach defense coverage may be obtained through Jim Patterson at Agape Insurance

It is important that you ensure your credit card processing machine and process is HIPAA compliant.  Educate yourself and make an informed decision.  I have included links to PCI websites for further explanation of PCI Compliance.
