No, Venmo isn’t HIPAA compliant because it doesn’t offer a Business Associate Agreement (BAA).
Venmo states that it doesn’t meet HIPAA requirements and doesn’t provide HIPAA protection for sensitive patient health information. Since the platform is typically used by individuals to send money to one another, it doesn’t fit the requirements for healthcare organizations.
There are several payment gateways which provide HIPAA compliance, however Venmo is not one of them and although it is a great payment method for many, it is not the best fit for medical institutions.
