Florida Law and Your Social Security Number

Florida law provides that State agencies, including Fountainhead Practice Management Solutions, must notify individuals of the circumstances that would require collection of social security numbers.

The following are the general scenarios under which Fountainhead Practice Management Solutions must collect and use social security numbers: insurance and health benefit eligibility, classification of accounts, customer identification and verification, credit worthiness, customer billing and payments, payroll and human resource functions, benefit processing, tax reporting, and any other lawful purpose necessary to conduct Fountainhead Practice Management Solutions business.

Social Security numbers are NOT public records, but may be released to other governmental or commercial entities as required by law in Section 119.071(5), Florida Statutes.
