SDS will hold the original claims for 30 days and then an on-site HIPAA compliant document destruction service shreds the claims. A SDS employee monitors at all times to ensure HIPAA compliance. We store claims by client, and each batch has a unique batch number and each document has a unique DCN number applied, so if we need to reference a physical document, we can easily find it.
